Repeat risk-reversals in Cigna

Repeat risk-reversals in Cigna. The stock off $2.67 to $166 and 5K Jul 150 - 180 risk-reversals trade at 66c. The investor is apparently selling puts to buy calls and adding to 5K opened for 25c with shares at $168 on Thursday last week, which created the largest open interest blocks in the name. The position is being doubled in size Monday after a 1.2% decline in the stock and expresses confidence that shares will rebound in the months ahead. The interest comes less than two weeks after shares lost 11.5% on 3/8/18 after Cigna announced plans to buy Express Scripts (ESRX).

Market Perform
Express Scripts upgraded to Market Perform at Bernstein
As previously reported, Bernstein analyst Lance Wilkes upgraded Express Scripts (ESRX) to Market Perform from Underperform, stating that while he continues to be bearish on the underlying business, he views the deal to be acquired by Cigna (CI) for approximately $91 per share as a "very positive outcome." He would expect regulatory approval based upon lack of overlap, though Wilkes thinks it will likely be an extended regulatory process.

Diplomat Pharmacy may be next takeover target, says Leerink
Leerink analyst David Larsen believes Diplomat Pharmacy (DPLO) could be the next takeover target following last week's buyout of Express Scripts (ESRX). A managed care plan or large pharmacy chain may find Diplomat's portfolio compelling, Larsen told investors earlier in a research note. He believes the rally post Cigna's (CI) acquisition of Express Scripts reflects a higher likelihood of a takeover, but that "significant upside" potential remains in Diplomat shares.

Market Perform
Cigna initiated with a Market Perform at Bernstein
Bernstein analyst Lance Wilkes initiated Cigna (CI) with a Market Perform rating and $195 price target following Cigna's announcement that it will buy Express Scripts (ESRX) for $67B. Wilkes views the deal as a bet that change comes more slowly to healthcare, and that financial returns from this deal will fund future strategic acquisitions for Cigna. In a research note to investors, Wilkes said he believes disruption is coming more quickly, in PBM and pharmacy and in the shift to value, and is "skeptical" of this move by Cigna. The analyst expects earnings growth to slow for Cigna driven by its employer focus, lack of scale and already best in class margins, and added that he has a "negative" outlook for Express Scripts, expecting declining gross margins as they lose Anthem (ANTM) and client pricing pressure as focus increases on drug costs.

Cigna shares look oversold with or without deal, says Deutsche Bank
Cigna (CI) shares are down 26% from the January $226 high and 14% since the Express Scripts (ESRX) deal was announced on March 8, Deutsche Bank analyst Chris Rigg tells investors in a research note. The analyst estimates pro forma 2021 earnings per share of $21.18 for Cigna and Express Scripts. As such, he sees "ample conservatism" in management's 2021 EPS target range of $20-$21. With or without the deal, Cigna shares look oversold, Rigg contends. He keeps a Buy rating on Cigna with a $236 price target.
