The insurer is well-poised for growth on its strong government 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 shareholders’ value. Humana’s sound balance sheet and a disciplined capital management remain major tailwinds. Following better-than-expected first-quarter results, the company provided a strong guidance for 2018. Also, the company has exited the individual commercial business effective Jan 1, 2018. Rising level of expenses persistently weighs on the bottom line. With respect to quarterly results, Humana’s first-quarter bottom line beat estimates on a favorable current-year medical utilization in Retail segment relative, lower tax rate and a positive impact of share buybacks."
