The earnings manipulation may begin if Unitedhealth's top management creates an artificial sense of financial success, forcing the stock price to be traded at a high price-earnings multiple than it should be. In general, excessive earnings management by Unitedhealth executives may lead to removing some of the operating profits from subsequent periods to inflate earnings in the following periods.
