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, "Shares of Humana have outperformed its industry’s growth year to date. Moreover, the company has witnessed its 2019 earnings estimates move upward over the last seven days. The insurer is well-poised for growth on its strong Medicare business. Its top line has been witnessing an uptrend for the past several years. Sufficient generation of cash flow has helped the company take up many capital deployment initiatives aimed at enhancing its shareholder value. Humana’s sound balance sheet and a disciplined capital management remain its major tailwinds. Acquisitions and dispositions made by the company have also led to business growth over the last few quarters. Following the solid second-quarter results and the buyouts of Curo Healthcare and Kindred, the company provided a bullish EPS guidance for 2018. However, its rising level of expenses persistently weighs on the bottom line." (10/5/2018)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "This morning, Humana announced it would acquire a 40% interest in Curo Health Services, a large, privately-held hospice company." (4/23/2018)
