Healthequity Inc is Among the Companies in the Managed Health Care Industry With the Lowest Forward Earnings Yield (HQY, MOH, WCG, UNH, HUM)

By Nick Russo

Below are the three companies in the Managed Health Care industry with the lowest forward earnings yields. Using projected earnings for the current fiscal year, the forward earnings yield is useful to compare a stock's return vs. owning a similar stock or other yield assets (e.g. bonds). Generally, the higher the earnings yield, the more undervalued the stock.

Healthequity Inc ranks lowest with a forward earnings yield of 1.4%. Molina Healthcar is next with a forward earnings yield of 3.2%. Wellcare Health ranks third lowest with a forward earnings yield of 4.3%.

Unitedhealth Grp follows with a forward earnings yield of 5.1%, and Humana Inc rounds out the bottom five with a forward earnings yield of 5.2%.

SmarTrend recommended that its subscribers protect gains by selling shares of Wellcare Health on February 28th, 2019 by issuing a Downtrend alert when the shares were trading at $258.98.
