Molina Healthcare price target raised to $120 from $110 at SunTrust

SunTrust analyst David MacDonald raised his price target on Molina Healthcare to $120 and kept his his Buy rating, citing yesterday's announcement of its selection for Medicaid contract in Puerto Rico. The analyst notes that while the re-procurement decision in Texas remains "crucial", the Puerto Rico award continues the company's recent string of success, adding that the steps taken by the management are paying dividends with a "sizable margin expansion opportunity" and optionality in its balance sheet.

Risk adjuster suspension positive for Centene and Molina, says Piper Jaffray
Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services suspending risk adjusters for the health exchange will likely cost the government and consumers more, but it could be positive for Centene (CNC) and Molina Healthcare (MOH), Piper Jaffray analyst Sarah James tells investors in a research note. Both companies are in a net payable position for 2017 and not having to pay these funds would allow the plans to retain cash, the analyst adds. James also sees a positive read-through for UnitedHealth (UNH), Aetna (AET) and Cigna (CI). The analyst finds it most likely that CMS will seek to adjust the risk adjusters in the end rather than cancel the program, but she adds the agency only has a few weeks for them to sort this out, which she feels is not enough time.

CMS suspension could save Molina, Centene hundreds of millions, says JPMorgan
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services confirmed Saturday that it will at least temporarily suspend the healthcare exchange risk adjustment program. If true, the immediate effect is that this Fall Molina Healthcare (MOH) and Centene (CNC) would avoid paying hundreds of millions of accrued payments related to 2017, JPMorgan analyst Gary Taylor tells investors in a research note. He notes that Molina would avoid $912M in payments and Centene $677M, according to their annual filings. On the other side, Anthem (ANTM) would not collect an expected $400M-$500M receivable, Taylor adds, citing his estimate. The analyst believes the longer-term effect of suspension "would be possibly additional significant disruption/withdrawals/rate hikes in the individual market for 2018-19." 19. If permanently dismantled, Taylor estimates Molina could book a one-time $350M after-tax gain related to 2017, Centene no gain and Anthem a $320M after tax loss. In terms of recurring earnings power exposure to exchanges, the analyst believes only Molina could materially benefit.

Molina's Medicaid solutions sale to DXC negative for Conduent, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Tien-tsin Huang notes that Molina (MOH) announced its intent to sell its Medicaid Management System to DXC Technology (DXC) for a total purchase price of $220M. The analyst is encouraged with the deal as it strengthens DXC's positioning in the Medicare and Medicaid implementation segment, as he anticipates the combined company to serve 24 U.S. states/regions. However, Huang views the deal to be competitively negative for Conduent (CNDT), who implements MMIS for 10 states/regions in the U.S. The analyst reiterates an Overweight rating on DXC's shares and a Neutral rating on Conduent.

DOWNGRADE

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Molina Healthcare (MOH) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at JPMorgan with analyst Gary Taylor saying he sees a high probability that Molina will retain its $2.2B 2020 Texas Medicaid contracts, but he does not like the downside risk heading into that Q3 re-procurement announcement. 2. Bio-Techne (TECH) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Deutsche Bank with analyst Dan Leonard stating that he increasingly questions the durability of its organic sales growth. 3. Horizon Pharma (HZNP) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Citi with analyst Liav Abraham saying he sees limited upside to valuation at current levels following the recent upward inflection in the share price. 4. NuVasive (NUVA) downgraded to Underperform from Neutral at BofA/Merrill with analyst Bob Hopkins stating that he is skeptical NuVasive can consistently drive high single digit revenue growth due to robotics momentum in the marketplace and lack of a differentiated product. 5. Wesco (WCC) downgraded to Sector Weight from Overweight at KeyBanc with analyst Steve Barger saying its recent inability to translate increasing sales to incremental margin is reflective of the more competitive electrical distribution market it serves.
