Triple-S Mgmt-B is Among the Companies in the Managed Health Care Industry With the Lowest Projected Earnings Growth (GTS, MGLN, HUM, WCG, UNH)

By Nick Russo

Below are the three companies in the Managed Health Care industry with the lowest projected earnings growth. The growth of earnings per share (current fiscal year estimated vs. last year actual) is important to gauge future profitability and relative value. Higher EPS growth generally justifies higher earnings multiples.

Triple-S Mgmt-B ranks lowest with a projected earnings growth of 0.5%. Magellan Health is next with a projected earnings growth of 5.9%. Humana Inc ranks third lowest with a projected earnings growth of 19.1%.

Wellcare Health follows with a projected earnings growth of 20.4%, and Unitedhealth Grp rounds out the bottom five with a projected earnings growth of 25.4%.

SmarTrend recommended that its subscribers protect gains by selling shares of Unitedhealth Grp on March 25th, 2019 by issuing a Downtrend alert when the shares were trading at $244.10. Since that call, shares of Unitedhealth Grp have fallen 8.6%. We are now looking for when a new Uptrend will commence and will alert SmarTrend subscribers in real time.
