    tripled my position in HUM today. bought in at 433.
    What I read was earnings were up & cost were up do to elective surgeries delayed due to Covid. Well those surgeries are done now. Humana makes $400 to $500 avg. per Medicare enrollee. They are signing up record folks. There are 64+ million folks on Medicare and as estimated 30 million more in the next 10 years. Record #'s switching to Med. Adv. as they offer tons of benefits and have plans as low as $0 per month. With inflation and Med. Supplements increasing, Med. Adv. will continue to grow Rapidly.

    $CLOV conversation
    CLOV is ripe for the picking. It's way undervalued when you compaire it to $UNH, $CI, & $HUM. Look at the valuations. This is a good buy at this price.

    Not a lot of reactions on HUM. Starting next week a lot of money can be made on this. Forget about Semis, Software, Tele Equip etc. The second half of the year will be consumer staples which healthcare is a part of. In the money calls can be very profitable on HUM. I am not recommending this for anyone else , but I am looking at the 445 call on next weeks weekly options.

    $UNH, 376 billion, $HUM 54 billion, $CI 82 biillion, and CLOV 6 billion, I think most of you are smart anough to figure out what direction this will go.

    $CVS conversation
    Looks like it will be a sluggish day, but to anyone whose here, $CVS is still
    - down 5.92% YTD ($CI up 13.95% YTD, $UNH up 36.57% YTD, $HUM up $34.22% YTD, $ANTM up 15.24% YTD)
    - CVS has the lowest PE ratio of all healthcare stocks of 10x to 12x
    - Coming off consecutive great quarters and going to finish with a great year
    - new CEO
    - heavily involved in Vaccine administration

    Price should be ($5.45 EPS ex $2 Div times 18 to 20 times) = $100

    For those that believe in $CVS, please hold your position and let's make today a good day.

    Honestly everything else ... energy stock weed stock tech stocks are already overpriced... investors need to recognize the value here and keep $CVS going up today.

    Beats estimate, raised guidance, and yet falling down.

    $HIIQ conversation
    While I think of $HIIQ as a cloud based technology platform company, they also utilize TV and have football legend Joe Namath
    on TV commercials helping get people covered. Similar to $HUM commercial. I cant recall seeing a commercial for $EHTH...
    What I find interesting about this commercial is that people remember it.
    Interesting CEO said they have more leads than they can handle.

    Sell volume seems like it is starting to slow down. Another dip under $229, might be good time to start position. Thoughts?

    If it keeps going up tomorrow, I will be convinced that HUM is finally getting out of its slump. If you look at the Daily Chart, everytime the last time it hit 258/259 in April, it would start sliding again. We are not out the woods yet....a Bullish move above 260 is needed for me to be convinced things are turning around.

    $HIIQ conversation
    I expect $HIIQ to grow faster than $HUM. If HUM can increase guidance, so can $HIIQ!

    no vaseline
    Goldman Sachs gave HUM a ‘conviction buy’ rating

    My guess for 04/29/20 - substantial earnings beat opens at $390

    Bill Johnston
    Be aware control of the Senate by Dems, and the threat it poses to managed care companies, is causing the stocks to sell off. A sell off that began shortly after the special elections in GA.

    Seniors be careful. HUM cancelled my lower cost Walmart Medicare PDP plan for 2019 and by default placed me in its highest cost Humana Premium plan for 2020. They did notify of the change, but the premium increase is buried within the notification several pages in. As a result, HUM will pocket about an extra $500 in 2020 based on my prescriptions. Suppose that is good for shareholders but bad for me.

    This market manipulation is absurd. The volatility in this sector screams insider trading!
    I have presented some very interesting evidence to the SEC.
    Let's see if they turn a blind eye, as they did in the Madoff case. They were warned for a decade of Madoff's ponzi scheme. They ignored it, and they allowed the fraud to grow exponentially.
