Leerink analyst Ana Gupte raised her price target for UnitedHealth to $175 from $165 after the company reported a "solid beat and raise" Q3, giving her more confidence in the strength of the company's diversified platform and execution while also offering positive read-across for Commercial Fully Insured & Individual fundamentals to the rest of the group. The analyst reiterates an Outperform rating on the shares.

Evercore says UnitedHealth displaces Aetna for managed care deal in Missouri
Analysts at Evercore ISI noted that Centene (CNC) and Wellcare (WCG) announced managed care contract awards in Missouri, where they are incumbents. The firm also said that the state's contract database names UnitedHealth (UNH) as the third winner, replacing the third incumbent, Aetna (AET). The firm assumes that Centene and Wellcare will retain their existing lives and that Aetna's current lives and the expansion lives will be divided evenly among the three contract awardees. Evercore said it assumed a Missouri renewal for Centene and views the win as removing downside risk, adding that the loss is "manageable" for Aetna but could raise concerns about the Medicaid business in general.

Piper says LabCorp, UnitedHealth relationship remains 'healthy'
Piper Jaffray analyst William Quirk says he found on UnitedHealth's (UNH) policy website that Beacon Laboratory Benefit Solutions is expanding to Texas on March 1, 2017. BeaconLBS is a front-end support tool designed by LabCorp (LH) and UnitedHealthcare to ensure physicians order the correct test for the patient as well as to curb unnecessary testing, Quirk tells investors in a research note. He believes the Texas expansion suggests the LabCorp and UnitedHealth relationship "remains healthy" despite Quest Diagnostics (DGX) and Optum signing a billing process arrangement. The move into Texas could increase LabCorp's organic revenue growth by 1.4% through Q3 of 2017 to Q2 of 2018, or $91M in revenue, Quirk estimates. He reiterates an Overweight rating on the shares with a $156 price target.
