UnitedHealth technical notes before earnings news, topping process underway

The shares have been in a shallow downtrend since late September of this year. On a 1-year daily chart, closing price basis, this downtrend is part of a larger topping process that is underway. A move below $130 on negative news would void support going back to May of this year. Additional support levels to watch in that event as potential downside objectives would be at $128.53 and then at $125.26. If the news is a positive surprise, a move above the $137 area would break the downtrend resistance line. Next resistance would then be at $140.51, $142.85, and the 52-week high at $144.48.

LabCorp impact from Quest-Optum collaboration limited, says Craig-Hallum
Craig-Hallum analyst Bill Bonello said the Quest Diagnostics (DGX) and Optum, a division of United Healthcare (UNH), collaboration does not put LabCorp's (LH) revenue at risk. The collaboration does not create any lab benefit management service, or a preferred lab network with Quest at the hub, that would drive business to Quest labs or compete with Labcorp's Beacon LBS lab management business, the analyst wrote. Bonellow said UnitedHealthcare and LabCorp continue to work together to expand the Beacon LBS model to other markets and we would expect to see the Beacon lab network expand to other payors overtime. Also, the analyst said the collaboration does not impact LabCorp's contract with UnitedHealthcare, or UHC, and and has no impact on that contract today and does not imply a change to UHC's contracting strategy going forward. Bonello rates LabCorp a Buy with a $160 price target.

LabCorp weakness a buying opportunity, says Canaccord
Canaccord analyst Mark Massaro noted LabCorp (LH) shares sold off yesterday on news that its rival, Quest Diagnostics (DGX), announced a partnership with Optum, a subsidiary of UnitedHealth (UNH). The analyst said LabCorp does not believe Quest can wrestle away UnitedHealth's long-standing lab services contract when it goes up for renewal in 2018. Massaro expects LabCorp to deliver steady quarterly beats and said the company is well positioned to capture its losses in the second half of 2016. Massaro reiterated his Buy rating and $155 price target on LabCorp shares.

UnitedHealth won VA contract worth $1B per year, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Sean Wieland says UnitedHealth unit Optum has won a contract with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to provide medical disability examinations. The analyst estimates the contract, awarded to Optum wholly owned subsidiaries Logistics Health and Medical Support Los Angeles, represents $1B per year. Wieland estimates the award will be neutral to earnings in year one and become accretive in 2018. He reiterates an Overweight rating on UnitedHealth shares with a $155 price target.
