Feb 4 Health insurer Humana Inc said on
Monday that fourth-quarter earnings had fallen as a rise in
operating expenses outpaced its increase in revenue.

share, down from $199 million, or $1.20 per share, a year
Revenue rose 6 percent to $9.56 billion from $9.06 billion.

earnings of $7.60 to $7.80 per share, saying it expected
improved operating results and that its Metropolitan Health
Networks Inc acquisition would add to profits.
