UnitedHealth (UNH +2.25%) Q2: net profit +5.5% to $1.34B; total enrollment in health plans +5% to 35.9M, boosted by acquisition of XL Health. Increases FY EPS forecasts for a second time, now expecting $4.90-$5 vs. $4.80-$4.95 prior and consensus of $5.01. UNH's earnings will "set the tone" for its peers, says an analyst.

    Obviously the numbers disappointed SOMEBODY.

     

    The way it popped and then dropped, it might have been something they said in the earnings call.
