FBR sees Anthem settlement with Justice Department as 'VERY unlikely'
FBR Capital analyst Chris Meekins says Friday's news reports implying an increased likelihood of a settlement between the Department of Justice and Anthem (ANTM) "may have created confusion among investors about what actually occurred at the August 12 hearing." After reviewing the transcript, the analyst believes nothing in the hearing indicated that a settlement was under active consideration. The Justice Department said, "We're always willing to hear any proposals that the defendants have," but did not say it was in settlement talks, Meekins tells investors in a research note. The analyst believes a settlement regarding Anthem's proposed acquisition of Cigna (CI) is "VERY unlikely." Anthem closed Friday up $1.99 to $130.19 while Cigna rose $6.69 to $133.31.

Leerink less positive that Anthem challenge to DOJ lawsuit will be successful
Following a conference call with an anti-trust specialist, Leerink analyst Ana Gupte is less positive that the Anthem (ANTM) challenge to the lawsuit by the DOJ will be successful. The analyst says that the specialist views the obstacles to a defense by Anthem-Cigna (CI) to the anti-trust concerns as too numerous to result in a successful close. Further, the analyst believes that any favorable decision, however unlikely, on the merger close, will likely be appealed by the DOJ. Nonetheless, the lower likelihood of this defense being successful may improve the odds of a successful Aetna (AET)-Humana (HUM) defense, the analyst notes.

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.
