The research methodology implemented in this study is forecasting method using autoregressive integrated moving average (ARIMA). Data selection in this study is share price of healthcare company sector namely IHH Healthcare Berhad. Result shows the ARIMA(1,1,1) model exhibits r-squared value of 0.184 and Akaike Information Criterion (AIC) value is -1.112. Residual diagnostics shows ARIMA (1,1,1) is reliable model for forecasting of healthcare sector in Malaysia.
