Technical View: Humana ticks fresh life high, analyst action

In the pre-market the stock was last up over 1.1% to $268.22. Without established resistance, a run to the $270-$275 area becomes the next probable technical price objective. Support is at the prior session closing price of $265.21. As previously noted, Jefferies upgraded the name to Buy and sharply raised its price target from $226 to $283.

CMS Medicare Advantage Payment Notice positive for Humana, UnitedHealth, says Leerink
Leerink analyst Ana Gupte views the CMS 2019 Medicare Advantage Payment Notice with Methodological Changes on Risk Adjusters as a likely positive precursor to the actual rate change and a positive catalyst. The analyst believes the notice is most positive for Humana (HUM), UnitedHealth (UNH) and WellCare (WCG), but also positive for the sector as a whole including Aetna (AET), Cigna (CI), Anthem (ANTM), Centene (CNC) and Molina Healthcare (MOH). The notice offers a change in the risk adjustment methodology that is more industry friendly than the status quo and this combined with a 4% underlying cost trend expectation should offer a positive advance rate announcement in February and final in April. Gupte also expects that the Republican Administration will drive tax reform as part of an imperative to reaccelerate what is likely irreversible privatization of Medicare, after the slowdown as part of the budget cuts in the era of ObamaCare.

Humana initiated with a Buy at Goldman Sachs
Goldman analyst Stephen Tanal initiated Humana with a Buy and $305 price target saying it has the best secular growth story in managed care given high Medicare Advantage exposure, balance sheet capacity, and strong local market share positions.

Buy
Humana upgraded to Buy from Hold at Jefferies
Jefferies analyst David Windley upgraded Humana (HUM) to Buy saying the stock has nearly 60% upside over the next three years. He raised his price target for the shares to $283 from $226. The analyst says he's encouraged by more balanced 2018 Medicare Advantage enrollment growth across both group and individual. He believes 2019 individual Medicare Advantage margins can expand back into its 4.5%-5% target. Humana also benefits most from tax reform relative to peers, Windley tells investors in a research note on the Managed Care space. The analyst this morning also upgraded Anthem (ANTM) to Buy.
