Investment data from PIMCo shows that investors are spending money in different ways in different industries, according to the company’s latest data.
For example, the average amount of investment in health care was $3,200 per year in the first quarter, compared to an average of $4,800 in the second quarter.
Health care investment was also much higher in the early part of the year compared to the second half, with a median annual investment of $7,800, compared with a value of $3.00 in the year-ago quarter.
That trend will continue throughout the year.
PIMC also reported that investment in technology was much higher than that of health care in the fourth quarter, with an average annual investment in tech-related businesses of $11,200, compared a value for tech of $5,700.
The fourth quarter is also the period of the health care sector’s growth.
Health spending was also very strong in the third quarter, reaching $17,700, a value that was more than twice as high as the second.
The investment data also showed that the average investor has a net worth of $9,200.
That compares to an investment of about $4.50 per household, a figure that was $1.40 higher in 2011.
Investors also made a net gain of $2,600, or 6.4%, in total investment, or $34,200 in real terms.
This is because of the strong performance of the financial sector and health care.
However, the financial and health sectors combined contributed less than 1% to the total growth in total investments, which was less than the overall increase in investment in the economy.
That may not sound like a lot, but the financial industry had a $2.8 trillion portfolio as of April 1, 2011, while the health sector has a $3 trillion portfolio.
In terms of investments in the health-care sector, PIMCA says the sector had an average portfolio size of $32,400, while investment in financial and insurance had an investment size of just $10,700 per household.
In 2011, the health and financial sectors combined accounted for about 30% of total investments in America.

Investment data shows that more people are investing in health, as well.
The average amount spent on health care over the last year was $931 per year, and that number has increased from the third to fourth quarters of last year.
This growth is due to a large increase in the number of people who are enrolled in health insurance plans, as many people who previously didn’t have coverage were able to get insurance.
Investors are also spending money on the services they use to manage their health care, as the health insurance industry continues to expand.
According to the PIMCE report, health care investment accounted for nearly $18 trillion in 2011, up from $17 trillion in 2010.
Health spending is also growing in other industries.
In addition to health care spending, investment in services that serve the health industry has grown.
Health savings accounts, which allow people to save for health care costs, are growing in popularity, and PIMCI says that they have contributed about $6 trillion to the economy as of the third and fourth quarters.
In terms of investment performance, PimCO said health care has contributed about 20% to total economic growth since 2000, while health care investments contributed 20% in 2010 and 7% in 2009.
PIMC, the largest insurance broker in the United States, reported that health care accounted for 13.4% of the overall economy in 2011 and that it had contributed $2 trillion in total annual economic activity, which is more than the economy has contributed to the stock market.
The PIMCP survey also showed a significant increase in consumer spending over the past two years.
Consumer spending has increased 10.9% since the second-quarter of 2010, which has been faster than the 10.1% increase for the economy overall.
The latest PimCo data show that investments in health and the financial services industry have been growing at about the same rate, which means that the overall health and finance sector is still growing at a steady pace.
