Universal Health assumed with an Equal Weight at Stephens

Stephens analyst Scott Fidel assumed coverage of Universal Health Services with an Equal Weight rating and $134 price target, as he expects the company will set expectations more conservatively for 2019. Supply related pressures have been a drag on fundamentals in the behavioral business, while cyclical tailwinds in the acute care segment may start to diminish in 2019, Fidel tells investors.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Walgreens Boots Alliance (WBA) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Robert Jones saying he struggles to make a "compelling fundamental case" for the Americas Healthcare Services Supply Chain heading into 2019 as "issues facing core growth drivers do not seem to be abating." 2. Cisco (CSCO) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Nomura Instinet with analyst Jeffrey Kvaal saying strengthening information technology spending, an innovation-led refresh cycle, and a rising software mix have lifted Cisco's multiple and its shares to post-recession highs. 3. Universal Health (UHS) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Stephen Tanal saying a "healthy" macro environment helps acute hospitals' commercial mix, but behavioral health providers like Universal Health over-index to Medicaid and Medicare, "leaving them less exposed to the supportive backdrop." 4. Beacon Roofing (BECN) downgraded to Neutral from Outperform at Wedbush with analyst Jay McCanless saying that yesterday's investor day did not provide any new catalysts to raise EPS estimates or price target. 5. Kaman (KAMN) downgraded to Underweight from Neutral at JPMorgan with analyst Seth Seifman saying he values the stock at 14 times his 2020 earnings per share estimate of $4.05 while adding 15c for potentially accretive M&A, given the company's balance sheet capacity.

Piper says buy Centene, sell Community Health if recession were to occur
After performing a recession risk/reward for Hospitals and Managed Care Organizations, Piper Jaffray analyst Sarah James recommends buying Centene (CNC) and selling Community Health Systems (CYH) if a recession were to occur. The analyst says that with some economists calling for a recession in 2019, she dug into the potential impacts across the hospital and insurance sector. For hospitals, consumer surveys point to economic outlook impacting decisions to receive services, James tells investors in a research note. On the other hand, insurers are a "natural defensive sector in a recession," adds the analyst. As such, in a recession James would be adding exposure to insurers and lightening hospitals.

Universal Health initiated with a Buy at Deutsche Bank
Deutsche Bank analyst Pito Chickering started Universal Health Services with a Buy rating and $140 price target. The analyst initiated coverage on Healthcare Facilities with a constructive view saying the sector is "relatively defensive" in slowing business cycles and that company cash flows "provide downside protection in volatile markets."
