Humana takeover still likely, $300 bid possible, says JPMorgan
After hosting investor meetings with management, JPMorgan analyst Gary Taylor says a possible sale of Humana (HUM) is still likely. The company's Medicare Advantage assets are coveted by every other publicly traded health plan and likely pharmacy benefit managers/drug stores, Taylor tells investors in a research note. He thinks Humana management is well prepared to discuss the possibilities of both health plan and PBM or drug store integration. The analyst continues to believe Cigna (CI) is the most plausible candidate, presuming a simultaneous sale of HealthSpring, to buy Humana. He sees the potential for a $250-$300 per share bid. Humana closed yesterday up 25c to $233.75. Along with Cigna, publicly traded health plans include Aetna (AET), Anthem (ANTM) and UnitedHealth (UNH). Express Scripts (EXRX) and CVS Health (CVS) are pharmacy benefit managers.

Benchmark ups Exact Sciences target to $50 on UnitedHealth coverage
Benchmark analyst Raymond Myers raised his price target for Exact Sciences (EXAS) to $50 from $34 after UnitedHealth (UNH) said last night that it will cover Cologuard at the recommended three-year interval, beginning on July 1. Exact in premarket trading is up 9%, or $2.92, to $35.57. Coverage from UnitedHealth, the last of the major payor holdouts, "cements Cologuard as standard of care" for colon cancer screening, Myers tells investors in a research note. He has a Buy rating on the shares.
