The long-term monthly chart for Humana shows a decade-long uptrend, with the price consistently making higher highs and higher lows on a long-term basis. The price has broken the bottom of the long-term trend a few times around 2019 and 2020. But for the most part, it has largely respected the bottom trend line. In September 2021, the price has once again appeared to have found support at the bottom of the long-term trend after falling more than 18% from a peak of $474.
