Managed Healthcare Cures Your Portfolio - Real Time Insight

By
A A A

Obama Care was the main reason I wanted to avoid any insurance company -- even the P&C ones because I am irrational like that.  But now I see where this is going and I have to say that that it might be time to get on board the crazy train.

There were proposed government cuts looming for these names, but those cuts have turned into rate increases.  Talk about a turnaround!  So over the last few days we see upgrades galore and estimates moving higher on this likely one-time event.

I am not going to even go into the how and the why of the rate increase, and how gets crushed (spoiler alert: it's you). I am going to focus on where I can make some money here to help offset the higher future payments that will... and they will ... come one day.

Here is the ticker list..... with the Zacks Rank next to it.

AET  3

CI 2

MGLN 5

CVH 2

CNC 3

HWAY 3

HNT 1

HUM 3

MOH 3

UAM  3

UNH 4

WCG 3

WLP 4

Which one do you like... and let's not all just go with HNT because it's the only #1, all these stocks will soon see estimate increases, even those "High Fives!"

Since this is healthcare related... pick your poison and tell me which one you would add to your portfolio!
