    welcome...

    I was looking at the Medical expense ratios for the last few years in the report: 2004 = 87%, 2005 = 89.9%, 2006 = 90.1%, 2007 = 86.7%, 2008 = 88.4%, 2009 = 88.5%, 2010 = 82.3%. It seems like this year is way lower than it ever has been, can it really stay this low, or will it move up? Is this year right or are the six years before that? Won't the new rules from health care reform limit increases to the rates the governement pays Humana and are then passed on to MDF? I am going to call the analyst listed on the report tomorrow to see if he is for real or a sham.

    • It should not really matter. MDF has been expanding their business through additional acquistions. That along with the stock buyback will drive the share price higher regardless of whether medical expenses go up or not. MDF simply generates a lot of free cash flow which they are putting to excellent use. At current P/E, this company is way under valued at present PPS.
