Government Back Securities Include BUCA Stocks

By Brian Klepper

For several years I have tracked the (spectacular) stock price growth of the major health plan organizations. I updated the table in the past few days, These data cover a period of 54 quarters or 13.5 years. What it shows is that, on average, these companies are increasing in value at a little more than 5.0% per quarter, growing more than 2.0x and 1.65x as the Dow Jones Index and the Standard & Poors Index respectively. 

In this table, I’ve also included data, calculated from publicly available reports by Wendell Potter on the percentage of each companies revenues in Q1-Q4 2021 that derive from government programs like Medicaid and Medicare. These data clearly show the extent to which the health plan industry’s success is underwritten by taxpayer funding.
