In the likely repeal of the Affordable Care Act, these health-care stocks should perform well, according to some analysts.

President-elected Donald Trump has decided on Rep. Tom Price, R-Ga., to be head of the Department of Health and Human Services. Trump's choice — and a Republican-controlled Congress — almost guarantee repeal of President Barack Obama's health law since Price already wrote a proposal to replace it.

Analysts were already anticipating a health-care overhaul with Trump's election, although some expected continued pressure on drugmakers for high prices.
