Judge seems to favor government in Cigna-Anthem antitrust case, CTFN says

Judge Amy Berman Jackson seems to be leaning towards a decision in favor of the government in the Cigna (CI)-Anthem (ANTM) antitrust trial, CTFN reports. The judge, who intends to recess next week to rule on whether the government has proved the merger will negatively affect competition for national healthcare accounts, said she is convinced that there is such a market, despite efforts from Anthem's legal team to muddy the definition, the report says. Anthem's lawyers have contended that there is no clear definition of a market for national accounts, the report notes. Reference Link

Managed Care mergers unlikely to close, says Cowen
Cowen analyst Christine Arnold believes the current managed care mergers including Aetna (AET) and Humana (HUM) and Anthem (ANTM) and Cigna (CI) are unlikely to close. The analyst said the government's ability to appeal could extend the litigation process beyond the termination dates stipulated in the merger agreements. Arnold believes the Aetna/Humana merger has a better chance of closing relative to the Anthem/Cigna deal, but believes neither are likely to close.

Anthem downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Gary Taylor downgraded Anthem (ANTM) to Neutral citing concerns over the company's individual insurance exchange exposure into 2017. Anthem's insurance exchange enrollment is poised to expand materially as other plans exit, Taylor tells investors in a research note.

Health insurers to see multiple catalysts from Trump presidency, says Bernstein
Bernstein analyst Lance Wilkes says that "repealing and replacing Obamacare will be Trump's primary focus." The analyst expects health insurers to benefit from from the repeal of ACA taxes and the elimination of requirements to spend a certain percentage of revenue on medical costs. Wilkes expects Anthem (ANTM) and Blue Cross/Blue Shield providers to benefit from the elimination of public exchanges and broad coverage requirements. Other health insurers include Aetna (AET), Centene (CNC), Cigna (CI), Health Net (HNT), Humana (HUM), Molina Healthcare (MOH), UnitedHealth (UNH) and WellCare (WCG).
