WellCare price target raised to $170 from $160 at Leerink
Leerink analyst Ana Gupte raised her price target for WellCare (WCG) to $170 from $160 following the company's "strong" EPS beat in Q4. The analyst believes WellCare is largely insulated from the downside of the Affordable Care Act "Repeal and Replace" given it had no exposure to Public Exchanges, while its exposure to Medicaid expansion is limited. Gupte sees a takeout as likely, with Aetna (AET) as the most likely buyer followed by Cigna (CI) or Anthem (ANTM). She reiterates an Outperform rating on WellCare's shares.

Deal termination positive for Humana, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Sarah James believes Humana (HUM) is in a stronger position today than when Aetna (AET) announced its merger offer. The analyst views the deal termination as a positive since she feels Humana is more valuable than the merger price. James keeps an Overweight rating on the shares with a $231 price target.

Humana price target raised to $220 from $208 at Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Scott Fidel raised his price target for Humana (HUM) to $220 from $208 following the termination of the company's proposed merger with Aetna (AET). The analyst believes Humana offers investors some "new sweets" post "Valentine's Day Break-up," including 2017 EPS guidance above the Street view, an increase in its dividend, a new share buyback, and a full exit from its beleaguered public exchange business in 2018. The analyst reiterates an Outperform rating on Humana's shares.
