Stifel analyst Vincent Anderson initiated Celanese with a Hold rating and a price target of $100.

JPMorgan calls Cigna top idea to own into its Healthcare Conference
JPMorgan analyst Gary Taylor says Cigna (CI) is his top short-term idea to own into the 2019 JPMorgan Healthcare Conference. The analyst anticipates Cigna at the conference will be prepared to provide "at least high-level combined-company proforma 2019 guidance." He sees a "valuation catalyst" in the closing of the Express Scripts (ESRX) deal and keeps an Overweight rating on Cigna with a $250 price target.

AMD addition to Nasdaq-100 a 'small near-term positive', says RBC Capital
RBC Capital analyst Mitch Steves notes the addition of AMD (AMD) to the Nasdaq-100 index announced late on Friday, which also contained the inclusion of lululemon (LULU), NetApp (NTAP), United Continental Holdings (UAL), VeriSign (VRSN) and Willis Towers Watson (WLTW) and the subtraction of Express Scripts Holding (ESRX), Hologic (HOLX), Qurate Retail (QRTEA), Shire (SHPG), Seagate Technology (STX) and Vodafone Plc (VOD). The analyst believes that the change - which will become effective before the market open on December 24th - could act as a "small near-term positive" for AMD shares, even though it does not change its fundamentals. Longer term, the analyst keeps his Outperform rating and $34 price target on AMD, but warns that the company is faced with a crypto currency downdraft in the Gaming segment and that he is also cautious on the hyperscale spending trends next year which he estimates in the low single digits. Steves adds that the notable investor debate is also taking place around the AMD server average selling prices, which he sees coming in around $5,400 - the higher end of the more bullish forecasts of $5K-$6K vs. the bears' estimate around $4K.

Cigna is the 'cheapest stock in the group,' says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst David Windley lowered his price target for Cigna to $244 from $273 following the close of the Express Scripts acquisition and keeps a Buy rating on the name. Cigna trades at the cheapest managed care price-to-earnings multiple at 11 times estimated 2019 earnings per share of $16.49 for the combined company, Windley tells investors in a research note. Further, he sees multiple expansion and upside to Cigna's 2021 earnings per share target of $20-$21 driving long-term stock performance. Windley calls Cigna the "cheapest stock in the group" and expects consensus estimates to rise following yesterday's merger close.

HCA Healthcare removed from Focus List at Citi
Citi analyst Ralph Giacobbe removed HCA Healthcare (HCA) after making Cigna (CI) his Top Pick and adding that stock to the list. The analyst, however, keeps a Buy rating on HCA as he continues to see a favorable backdrop for the company. He believes HCA has a positive setup into 2019 due to continued organic momentum, improvement in recently acquired facilities, and the favorable Medicare rate backdrop.

Citi adds Cigna to Focus List, sees 50% return potential in two years
Citi analyst Ralph Giacobbe added Cigna to his firm's Focus List and makes the stock a Top Pick. Cigna offers "compelling" value at current levels as it trades at a 27% discount to peers and a 20% discount to the market, Giacobbe tells investors in a research note. He believes the Express Scripts transaction, coupled with Cigna's administrative services concentration and its "funding agnostic, transparent, aligned model," should allow incremental opportunities for growth, particularly within the national account book. The analyst says Cigna shares offer potential for 50%-plus return in the next two years.
