Humana raises guidance for Q3, FY16

Based on preliminary results, Humana (HUM) now anticipates diluted earnings per common share for the year ending December 31, 2016 to be approximately $9.50 on an adjusted basis, or 25c per diluted common share above its previous guidance range. The increase in FY16 EPS guidance was primarily due to better-than-previously-projected performance in the company's Medicare Advantage business and its Healthcare Services segment as well as in-line performance in the company's individual commercial business. The company also increased its EPS guidance for Q3 by approximately 30c per share to approximately $3.15 on an adjusted basis. As previously announced, Humana entered into a definitive merger agreement with Aetna (AET) on July 2, 2015 under which, at the closing, Aetna will acquire each outstanding common share of Humana for $125 in cash and 0.8375 of an Aetna common share.

Cigna has greatest upside should DOJ block mergers, says Cowen
Cowen noted the DOJ tone toward the pending managed care deals is decidedly negative and raised the burden of proof on the companies to demonstrate the deals are not anti-competitive. Cowen believes Cigna has the most upside of the four companies involved whether the deals go through or not. Cowen has an Outperform rating and $160 price target on Cigna shares.

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.

Pacific Crest cuts Fitbit to sell, sees share downside to $11
Pacific Crest analyst Brad Erickson downgraded Fitbit (FIT) to Underweight from Sector Weight after his channel checks indicated that Charge 2, the company's flagship holiday product, is off to a slow start. Underweight is Pacific Crest's equivalent of a sell rating. Charge 2 inventory is accumulating in the channel and sell-through is below initial Blaze/Alta levels, Erickson tells investors in a research note. The analyst continues to believe that a large portion of Fitbit owners stop using the device within months. Further, he views the corporate wellness deal between Aetna (AET) and Apple (AAPL) as a "substantial negative" for Fitbit. Erickson sees downside to $11 for shares of Fitbit. The stock closed yesterday up 17c to $16.70.
