PAST TOP PICK
UnitedHealth Group Inc (UNH-N)

(A Top Pick June 13/17. Up 18%.) This has been an absolute hero. It has several tailwinds. It is the dominant Medicare/Medicaid provider. Management is intent on returning 50% of free cash flow. It has all the right factors. He still likes this.

HOLD
UnitedHealth Group Inc (UNH-N)

A fine company, but his choice has been Anthem (ANTM-N). Has great admiration for this company. They are very good managers. They have the attributes that are really important from a risk/rewards standpoint in the healthcare insurance space, and that is size and scale. They have enough risk aversion that you should be safe holding this.

TOP PICK
UnitedHealth Group Inc (UNH-N)

He likes its scale. It is the leader in every single group that it does business in. It has the widest geographic dispersion for its businesses. It is driving costs down for the government spend, which they badly need. Dividend yield of 1.6%. (Analysts’ price target is $194.)

PAST TOP PICK
UnitedHealth Group Inc (UNH-N)

(Top Pick Mar 2/17, Up 39%) There is a move toward trying to reduce the per capita health care spending.  They are compressing their business and picking up a lot of CVS-N customers.  It is not terribly affected either way by a policy shift.  They return 50% of free cash flow to shareholders.  They have government contracts behind them.  It came off his list, but there is nothing wrong with them.

DON'T BUY
UnitedHealth Group Inc (UNH-N)

He is not adding to his holdings right now. The industry leader in terms of health insurance. The time when he really backed up the truck was in the early part of Mr. Obama’s administration when stocks were just begging to be picked up off the sidewalks. Since then, this company has done extremely well. For your healthcare exposure, he would be looking at the more traditional companies such as Abbott Labs, Pfizer’s, Merck’s, GlaxoSmithKline’s.

PAST TOP PICK
UnitedHealth Group Inc (UNH-N)

(A Top Pick June 22/16. Up 17.44%.) They are the dominant medical insurer. The transition from straight Medicare to Medicare Advantage will be a positive tailwind for them. There are some tax benefits coming down the pipeline that will be positive for them. The only US medical insurer that is integrated with its pharmacy benefit manager, which is proving to be positive.

HOLD
UnitedHealth Group Inc (UNH-N)

A very high quality health care provider in the US.  If you want exposure there, it is one of the best companies to hold.  She likes healthcare as a secular theme due to the aging demographics.  There is not one specific reason why is has gone up recently.  Keep holding it.

COMMENT
UnitedHealth Group Inc (UNH-N)

Technically this has been doing okay, but it is currently testing its support level, and trading in a range right now. Historically, healthcare stocks at this time of year have underperformed the market. It is best not to be in the stock right now.

COMMENT
UnitedHealth Group Inc (UNH-N)

A great business, and a leader in Pharma/benefits management space. Their franchise of Optum has been eating up market share in that fragmented space. Also, have contracts with the US military. Thinks it could have a little bit of volatility if there is a Clinton president, which could give you a buying opportunity.

WAIT
UnitedHealth Group Inc (UNH-N)

It is coming in under EBV+5, or $116.81, -14% to model price.  We are getting 9% compound health care cost increases in the US annually.  Wait for $110, EBV+4, to buy the stock again.

PAST TOP PICK
UnitedHealth Group Inc (UNH-N)

(A Top Pick Aug 27/15. Up 18.02%.) Recently took profits on this. The healthcare sector is under little pressure with some of the rhetoric coming out of the election talk in the US. He still likes this, but it might hold back a little by more talk from the US politics.
