Cramer's Stop Trading! HMOs Are Terminally Ill (9/30/09)

Stocks discussed on Jim Cramer's Stop Trading! TV Segment, Wednesday September 30.

United Health Group (NYSE:UNH), Wellpoint (WLP), Humana (NYSE:HUM), Exelon (NYSE:EXC)

Even though Obama's public option healthcare plan failed to pass the Senate, Cramer thinks the action in the HMOs shows that some form of bill may become law, and he would steer clear of stocks like United Health Group, Wellpoint and Humana.

While healthcare reform might be bad news for HMOs, the cap-and-trade bill should benefit Exelon, which has nuclear power exposure. Investors have a good entry point because the "stock is way off."
