When excluding State Farm's holdings, the most popular healthcare stocks to own were DaVita Inc.. and Johnson & Johnson. Other favorites included Merck & Co. Inc., Pfizer Inc. and AbbVie Inc.

State Farm's biggest holdings, Johnson & Johnson and Eli Lilly, are both higher on the year despite turmoil in the market amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The latter has performed particularly well, climbing more than 17.7% year-to-date through the April 30 close.
