    United Health Stock Remains a Safe, If Long Term Insurance Bet

    By all rational measures, United Health (NYSE:UNH) produced a very solid performance for its second quarter fiscal 2018 earnings report. The country’s biggest health-insurance provider exceeded profitability expectations, while meeting the consensus target for revenues. While the “paper stats” were impressive – United Health hit an earnings per share of $3.14, up 3.2% from the $3.04 consensus target – Barron’s Teresa Rivas notes that much of the positive surprise boils down to non-operating factors.

    Big Health-Care Mergers May Be in Amazon's, Walmart's Future

    On Wednesday, there were murmurs that an activist investor might get involved in the Cigna (CI)/Express Scripts Holding (ESRX) merger, in which the health insurer plans to buy the pharmacy-benefits manager in a deal worth $54 billion. Leerink's Ana Gupte wades into the world of health-care mega-mergers today, noting that along with Cigna, UnitedHealth Group (UNH) also closed higher on the news yesterday. Gupte argues that while Amazon and Walmart may be able to "enter or deepen" their presence in the drug supply chain, "they would not be able to compete with sophisticated managed care companies such as UnitedHealth, Humana [HUM] and increasingly Anthem [ANTM] on integrated care delivery with coverage absent a substantial MCO acquisition." That said, she writes that Amazon or Walmart could facilitate cross-selling into prescription-drug benefits and increase store traffic by striking a deal with a managed-care organization.
