Attempts at health care reform are largely failures. Even when they do succeed, they are piecemeal effors that in no way seriously challenge the business models of profitability of insurers. That said, I like that the company has a lot of cash, a manageable debt load, is growing tremendously, is cheap on a EV/CF basis, and already has nearly half the market. It's trading near its 52-week high, but I think that it will blast through that once the health care debate is done.
