UnitedHealth reports Q2 OptumRx revenue up 5.1% to $15.8B

OptumRx fulfilled 322 million adjusted scripts in second quarter 2017, an increase of 16 million scripts or 5.2 percent over the prior year. OptumInsight revenues grew 13.1 percent year-over-year to $2.0 billion in second quarter 2017, driven by growth in revenue management and business process services. OptumInsight contract backlog grew by $2.1 billion or 18.6 percent year-over-year, ending the quarter at $13.4 billion. "Continued strong revenue growth from new business and exceptional customer retention reflects the confidence customers place in our commitment to and effectiveness in meeting their health care needs," said Stephen J. Hemsley, CEO of UnitedHealth Group.

LabCorp downgraded on potential acquisition at KeyBanc
As noted earlier, KeyBanc downgraded LabCorp to Sector Weight from Overweight. Analyst Donald Hooker downgraded the stock based on his belief that the company implied that it may make an "expensive" deal to acquire a contract research organization. The analyst adds that the upcoming renewal of the company's contract with UnitedHealth (UNH) in 2H18 creates uncertainty.He expects to hear news about the deal "in coming months."

Draft version of Senate healthcare bill better than expected, says Leerink
Leerink analyst Ana Gupte said she views the draft version of the Senate healthcare bill as better than expected, stating that stabilization of the Exchanges and risk stabilization is a direct positive for health insurers and indirect positive for facility operators. The Senate bill maintains the House bill's plan to repeal all "ObamaCare" industry fees and taxes, which is a positive for Managed Care and Medical Technology players, Gupte adds. She keeps Outperform ratings on Anthem (ANTM), UnitedHealth (UNH), Cigna (CI), Humana (HUM), WellCare (WCG), Molina Healthcare (MOH) and acute care hospital operators HCA Holdings (HCA), Tenet (THC) and LifePoint (LPNT).

Jefferies says healthcare rally 'appropriate' after 'toothless' AHCA rewrite
Jefferies analyst David Windley said the rally yesterday in healthcare stocks was appropriate given the "anemic" rewrite of the AHCA healthcare bill by Senate Republicans. The key changes are removal of "pay-for" taxes, a somewhat longer runway for Exchange cost-sharing reduction subsidies, and delayed Medicaid transition to per capita caps, he tells investors. Windley called Cigna (CI) "probably the safest MCO in this noise", adding that Humana (HUM) would benefit most from the proposed removal of the health insurer fee. Other publicly traded healthcare insurers include Aetna (AET), Anthem (ANTM), Centene (CNC), Health Net (HNT), Molina Healthcare (MOH), UnitedHealth (UNH) and WellCare (WCG).
