Very well said. I agree with you and I picked up shares yesterday for another new position in UNH and it seems I got my timing all wrong. Maybe UNH being a few bucks off of its 52-week high is one reason why it struggles here without news to drive buying momentum again. The volume over the last two days is poor.
