What are Wall Street analysts saying about Humana stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Humana stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Humana’s shares have lost year-to-date against its industry’s gain. Moreover, the company has witnessed its 2020 earnings estimates move south over the last 30 days. Its rising level of expenses since 2010 persistently weighs on the bottom line. The company expects high benefit expenses which will lead to an overall increase in operating expenses going forward. Also, increase in leverage might lead to heightened financial risk for the company and burden on margins. Nevertheless, it is well-poised for growth on the back of its strong Medicare business. Its top line has been witnessing an uptrend for the past several years. Acquisitions and dispositions made by the company have also led to business growth over the last few quarters." (4/11/2019)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, ". We reiterate our Neutral rating on HUM shares and maintain our 12-month price target of $325. After the market close on the company reaffirmed its 2018 EPS guidance. The company also provided updated 2019 membership metrics. Given the update, we are increasing our 2019 revenue and EPS estimates. The company had previously indicated that it expected 2019 adjusted EPS to grow above its stated long-term goal of 11-15%. With its filing on Wednesday, the company did not comment on 2019 EPS guidance, but will provide detailed 2019 financial guidance when it reports 4Q18 and year-end 2018 results on Wednesday, February 6, 2019."
