"The focus of our Spindletop™ stock indices is to complement our current investment strategy," says Dr. Evan Melrose, Managing Director of Spindletop Capital. "In an effort to better track healthcare performance and the rotations of various healthcare segments for our partners, we have created several Spindletop Indices.  Our best performing index, the Spindletop™ US Biotechnology Index, is up 35.0% YTD."  Year to date, the indices have outperformed the S&P by an average of 8.5%. 

"Over 100 years ago, the discovery of oil at Spindletop signaled the beginning of the oil boom in Texas," adds Dr. Melrose.  "We believe the next 'Spindletop' for Texas will be healthcare tracked by the Spindletop™ Texas Healthcare Index, which is up 13.8% YTD." 

The following Spindletop™ stock indices track different sectors of healthcare:  

Spindletop™ US Medical Device Index  (up 21.4% YTD)

Spindletop™ US Biotechnology Index  (up 35.0% YTD)

Spindletop™ US Pharmaceutical Index  (up 8.5% YTD)

Spindletop™ US Healthcare Services Index  (up 26.8% YTD)
