The company has a P/E ratio of 9.5, above the average health services industry P/E ratio of 8.4 and below the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 23.2.

TheStreet Ratings rates Humana as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, attractive valuation levels and solid stock price performance. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income. You can view the full
