Shares of Humana (HUM -13%) get slammed this morning, a day after the managed-care provider missed the mark on Q2 earnings and cut its profit outlook for the year. The dismal report is taking down more than one insurer that otherwise might have had an up day: Aetna (AET -1.9%), WellPoint (WLP -3.5%), UnitedHealth (UNH -3%).

  • My money flow indicator just skyrocketed into the negative for HUM.

     

    I will keep you posted for a confirmation and continuation of a downdraft.

  • I'm not sure why this is a surprise to anyone? Between ever increasing costs and the Fed crushing the insurance industry's ability to make a risk free return what did folks think was going to happen to these companies?

  • Watched this stock all day awful price action, even when it recovered just awful. Considered a deep OTM money long term call (which was in the money last week) but I just feel this market will tip over this week and this thing will be 52-53 soon....lot of gaps that can be filled.
