Almost Family downgraded to Sector Perform at RBC Capital after LHC mergerLHC Group
As noted earlier, RBC Capital analyst Frank Morgan downgraded Almost Family (AFAM) to Sector Perform from Outperform but raised his price target to $62 from $54 to reflect the implied pricing of the merger announced last week. Morgan says the stock-for-stock transaction with LHC Group (LHCG) is positive, creating the largest in-home service provider in the industry. The analyst also notes that given the low overlap in the two companies' operations, he does not anticipate any antitrust issues related to the merger.

Almost Family acquired for 16% premium, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Gary Taylor says Almost Family's (AFAM) merger of equals with LHC Group (LHCG) amounts to a takeover at a 16% premium, based on LHC's closing price yesterday. Regarding antitrust, the analyst notes that while the deal would propel the third and fourth largest players in the home-health industry to a number two position behind Kindred Healthcare (KND), the industry is "tremendously fragmented." Further, Taylor believes the merger agreement contains "onerous divestiture language." The analyst has a Neutral rating on Almost Family with a $59 price target.
