(A Top Pick Mar 11/19, Up 2%) Really good day trade. Not a happy place to be as a retail investor. Not something you need to own right away. Chart's gone straight up for so long, but now facing some turbulence. Now it's a hold or a watch.

They are the largest Health Care provider in the US. He thinks it is going back into the $300 territory after the election. P/E is 17. (Analysts’ price target is $287.72)

Basically an insurance provider. Healthcare space in general is messy. Trump is attacking healthcare companies. Insurance costs are rising, but they can't keep going up when wages aren't increasing. So insurance is trying to move down the food chain. Plus, Amazon is getting into the business. He'd be really nervous.

A managed care company. Like a large medical insurance company, but they own their own facilities and networks. A shock when it sold off. Valuation is fantastic. Once in a decade buying opportunity. Yield is 1.55%. (Analysts’ price target is $288.54)

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.
