UnitedHealth Group Incorporated (INX:UNH) social chatter is higher than usual

UNH
It is so perfect that the present chief Obamacare liar/propagandist is the corrupt UnitedHealth Exec VP turned Obamacare chief (ethics waiver!) who shoveled bailout bucks to his former employer and wants everyone to have to buy their expensive plans. Can't make this stuff up. https://t.co/HnYNvJbiOz

What's Behind UnitedHealth Group's Q3 Earnings Success

UNH CPB

In this clip from The Motley Fool's Industry Focus: Healthcare, analyst Shannon Jones and Motley Fool contributor Todd Campbell discuss how Medicare and Medicare are moving the needle for investors, and whether this company will be able to return more money to its investors through dividends and share buybacks. That's under their Optum brand. When we're looking at sales and considering investment in UnitedHealthcare, you want to not only consider the health insurance market, but you want to consider how people are going to be using data in designing treatment programs, how intervention by health insurance may help people stick to their courses of therapy and stay on their medication, avoid hospitalizations, all that kind of stuff. That will be a key area to watch. For UnitedHealth, it really comes down, their biggest revenue drivers, you've got the Optum brand, but you've also got the employer-sponsored plans and also Medicare Advantage, as well. Campbell: Yeah, and a lot of that is obviously Medicare and Medicaid, which I think are probably the two most important pieces of the health insurance business to track at UnitedHealthcare going forward.

Can UnitedHealth Group and Johnson & Johnson Continue Their Winning Ways?

UNH CPB +2 more UNH CPB JNJ GILD

Two, if you want to keep track -- I'm going to put a quick plug in here, Todd -- of all of the news, all of the industry insights, we've actually put together a page specifically for you, if you just go to www.fool.com/marijuana-stocks. It's just crazy how big this company is, every quarter when I track it. So many of our listeners own it somewhere. Even if you don't think you own it, you probably do, because it's going to be in ETFs and mutual funds. Stelara has been growing its sales by double digits following a label expansion to include its use in Crohn's disease patients. But really, it's been oncology that's allowed them to offset some of the loss of exclusivity that's associated with patent expiration. If you look at the oncology sales last quarter, they grew 36% year over year to $2.6 billion. Zytiga, which is their top-selling prostate cancer drug -- we should talk about Zytiga later on when we talk about patent risks -- Zytiga sales grew 43% year over year to almost $1 billion, $958 million in the quarter.

UnitedHealthcare Donates Hasbro’s NERF ENERGY Game Kits to Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston as Part of New England Revolution Walking Challenge

UNH HAS

New England Revolution defenders Chris Tierney and Andrew Farrell signed autographs while Eric Swain, vice president of UnitedHealthcare of New England, and Brian Bilello, president of the New England Revolution, passed out kits with mascots Slyde and Dr. Health E. Hound to local youth at the Charlestown Club (Video: Anita Sen). Each kit includes a NERF ENERGY Game Band, a NERF PRO FOAM soccer ball and instructions to download the NERF ENERGY RUSH mobile game to get kids moving. As children participate in physical activity, they earn “energy points” that are tracked by the activity band, and these points turn into screen time to play the mobile game on a smartphone or tablet. In the United States, UnitedHealthcare offers the full spectrum of health benefit programs for individuals, employers, and Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries, and contracts directly with more than 1.2 million physicians and care professionals, and 6,500 hospitals and other care facilities nationwide.

Trade of the Day: UnitedHealth Stock Is a Year-End Outperformer

UNH

InvestorPlaceOctober 18, 2018, 11:33 AM GMT. While the broader U.S. stock market has seen more swings than a playground of late, one sector in specific has held up relatively well and defended, thus far, a pattern it has displayed for several months now. Within this sector, shares of U.S. health insurance giant UnitedHealth Group (NYSE:UNH) continue to act well and, following their latest earnings report, look ripe for another break higher. The highest probability and most steadily successful stock market strategy that I have found over my thus far 21-year career as a trader and investor is that of sector and group rotation. Not only does sector and group rotation happen every day, week and month of every year, but it is also the real basis of how the stock market works.
