Hospital giants in talks to merge, WSJ reports

Ascension and Providence St. Joseph Health, both nonprofits, are talking about combining, which would create an entity of unprecedent reach, according to The Wall Street Journal, citing people familiar with the matter. A deal would dethrone the nation's largest pure hospital operator, HCA Healthcare, the publication noted. Reference Link

Overweight
HCA Healthcare upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Gary Taylor upgraded HCA Healthcare to Overweight and raised his price target for the shares to $96 from $75. The analyst is making a "relatively short-term call" that the currently proposed U.S. corporate tax reform would disproportionately benefit HCA. He believes passage of corporate tax reform could boost HCA's current 2019 consensus earnings per share estimates by 30% from $8.06 to nearly $10.50. Estimate raises could expand the stock's valuation multiple and drive the shares up by 22%-35%, Taylor tells investors in a research. Further, he sees limited near-term downside risk in the shares in the absence of tax reform.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. The Medicines Co. (MDCO) upgraded to Outperform from Perform at Oppenheimer with analyst Jay Olson citing the company's "successful transformation" into a pure-play research and development biotech company focused entirely on inclisiran, an siRNA PCSK9 inhibitor. 2. Boston Scientific (BSX) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BTIG with analyst Sean Lavin saying his prior Neutral rating was based on concerns that Lotus timelines were too aggressive and that the valve may never make it to the U.S. market. 3. Melinta Therapeutics (MLNT) upgraded to Hold from Sell at Gabelli. 4. Canadian National (CNI) upgraded to Buy on valuation at TD Securities with analyst Cherilyn Radbourne citing recent share price weakness. 5. HCA Healthcare (HCA) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Gary Taylor saying he is making a "relatively short-term call" that the currently proposed U.S. corporate tax reform would disproportionately benefit HCA.
