Redfin (RDFN), or “Real Estate Redefined” in an abbreviated form, is one of the exciting new unicorn IPOs of 2017. Taking the massive real estate market and flipping it on its head is the goal of RDFN. They are attempting to be a disruptor in the space, and the Q2 2017 results show some great promise going forward. Knowledgeable real estate names like Zillow (ZG) CEO Spencer Rascoff realize RDFN is a large threat to the industry as a whole. By streamlining the home buying process and lowering broker fees, RDFN looks to make buying a home cheaper and easier. Technology is the foundation of the company, and young millennial home buyers aged 25-40 are the target audience. As this generation ages over the next 5-10 years, Redfin can expand with the tech savvy masses. Redfin is poised for some large growth years ahead of it, but the stock price is certainly more of a question mark. While I am impressed by the growth rate and results, the stock sits at quite the lofty valuation. Let’s take a look at the Q2 numbers and see if it is worth its $2.2B valuation at the moment.

Health insurance giant UnitedHealth Group (NYSE:UNH) has done an admirable job of navigating the ever-changing landscape of healthcare reform over the past several years. The company was slow to embrace the health insurance exchanges set out in the Affordable Care Act, and that helped leave UnitedHealth less vulnerable when the Trump administration sought to repeal and replace Obamacare. Even as many focused on the positives of tax reform, UnitedHealth had to find ways to navigate the return of the excise tax on health insurance premiums in 2018 without seeing a material negative impact to its bottom line.
