••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score

Guru Investment Theses on UnitedHealth Group Inc

Chris Davis Comments on UnitedHealth Group - Jun 24, 2014

UnitedHealth Group (UNH), the largest health care insurance company in the United States, is an example of a headline risk or contrarian holding in the Portfolio. The company focuses solely on its core health care business and has a diversified product line in most major segments including underwriting health insurance plans for large employers, administering plans on a non-risk basis, and offering Medicare Advantage as an alternative to traditional Medicare. In addition the company has successfully built an array of less regulated health care related noninsurance businesses, including the third largest pharmacy benefit management company, and also offers consulting and other services in the area of health care information technology. We view UnitedHealth Group as a well-managed and durable franchise with good growth potential that is overshadowed by current political debates.

The company has successfully navigated the changes required by the Affordable Care Act and is cautiously participating in the new insurance exchanges. UnitedHealth is also finding new growth internationally, especially in Brazil where the company serves almost 5 million people.
