BUY
Trading at 17 times forward earnings. 13-14% growth rate. 1.5% dividend yield. 15 billion dollar worth of free cash flow. They are in pharmacy and benefit management service. They are have scale across different segments. Good for an uncertain time despite the politics.

Good operator. Sensible balance sheet. Like the "Home Depot" of healthcare. Difficult to buy on price. Well run. Always at a premium price, as it's a good company.

Just tested the 50- and 100-week moving averages--and hasn't broken them. It's still cheap after selling off, building a base and is now moving up.

Start a position at $240? Positives: top-shelf management with a history of returning 50% of free cash flow each year through dividends and stock buys. They're massive and have cost advantage. Cons: in consolidation now. He takes a longer view on UNH, but wouldn't buy it now. There's no rush to. UNH is also beta. Numbers solid, but UNH isn't cheap. Watch it.

On a 12 months basis it is better than 85% of the companies in the NYSE. Healthcare has come back quite nicely. This is trading well above a rising 150 day average. This is a theme you can depend on. Managed Healthcare. Continue to hold it.

It has characteristics of a defensive nature but grows at double digit earnings each year. There are headwinds in that space. Amazon may be entering the pharmacy business. But people are living longer and will need health care longer. Buy it on dips.

It's #5 in revenue of all US companies. They'll do $250 billion in revenue in 2019. It's down only 7-8% during this market carngage, so it's held its own. The CEO belives they just started a growth boom. Has a good runway ahead, working closely with government agencies and in South America. Good defensive stock. (Analysts’ price target is $304.74)

They are just so consistent. The health care sector is just so influenced by politics. But these guys reduce costs for governments. This stock has been spectacular. They have scale and a phenomenal management team that returns capital to shareholders. He would not buy more at this time.

The company came out with very strong earnings – 12% growth y-o-y.  Despite the run in share prices currently, he thinks there is still lots of runway.  The companies touches on so many aspects of public health in the US and suggests politicians will avoid public cuts in spending going forward.  He sees their growth continuing.  Yield 1.3%.

Its technicals and fundamentals have nicely converged and is now perfectly priced. There's no upside or downside here. No momentum to rise. Maybe in another year there'll be enough earnings.

(A Top Pick June 13/17 Up 29%) He sees no reason to move away from this holding. It is a consistent performer and will continue to do well. The independant gorilla in the Medicare and Medicaid space in the US. Did have a little bit of a pullback and consolidation. A very positive story and good momentum based on last quarter earnings.

COMMENT

Amazon, Berkshire Hathaway and J.P. Morgan just announced forming a healthcare company aimed at cutting costs. The experiment with government led healthcare mandates really didn’t work. There was far too much friction between opposing views. If you own the stock, you shouldn't get too excited about just one day, or the fact that insurers are going to go away.

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.
