I. Conservative Recommendation
UnitedHealth Group Incorporated (UNH) is a current recommendation in my weekly trading service Alpha Algorithm.
UnitedHealth Group was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise nearly 6% on the day. The move came after the company reported that its core insurance and health services businesses grew in the third quarter.
Consensus estimates for the current quarter also moved higher over the past few weeks. United Healthcare is currently a 100% “buy,” based on all short-, medium- and long-term technical indicators I use.
II. Aggressive Recommendation
Restaurant Brands International (QSR) is a current recommendation in Smart Money Masters.
Hedge fund manager Bill Ackman has an incredible 40.1% of his fund at Pershing Square Capital Management invested in Restaurant Brands International’s stock.
As it turns out, Warren Buffett is also a major investor in the company. Furthermore, private equity firm 3G Capital is the biggest shareholder, owning 42.5% of the shares. The second-largest shareholder, owning 11.6% of QSR, is National Indemnity.
National Indemnity itself is a subsidiary of Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway (BRK-B). Once you look through the ownership structure, together, 3G and Berkshire own about 54% of QSR. That means that 3G and Berkshire together control the company.
Technically, QSR is in a strong uptrend and scores 100% on my short-, medium- and long-term technical indicators.
