UnitedHealth initiated with an Overweight at Stephens

Stephens analyst Scott Fidel initiated coverage of 11 Managed Care and Healthcare Facilities stocks, telling investors that overall he is constructive on managed care and selective on hospitals. He started UnitedHealth with an Overweight rating and $287 price target, telling investors that he believes the company still has among the strongest near-term and long-term growth prospects in the sector despite its "unmatched size and scale." Fidel cites UnitedHealth's leading market position in MA, "outsized growth ambitions" for OptumCare, and expansion into global healthcare markets being in its early stages.

DaVita upgraded to Outperform at Raymond James on valuation
As reported earlier, Raymond James analyst John Ransom upgraded DaVita (DVA) to Outperform from Market Perform with a price target of $70. The analyst notes that the stock has fallen about 18% since the company reported a Q3 earnings miss and since the defeat of the California ballot initiative, creating an attractive entry point. Ransom also points to yesterday's constructive commentary from UnitedHealth (UNH) regarding their pending acquisition of DaVita Medical Group along with the 8-K filing by the latter stating that the bank covenant timetable for closing the deal has been extended by 6 months.

LabCorp selloff brings long-term buying opportunity, says Piper Jaffray
LabCorp (LH) this morning followed Quest Diagnostics' (DGX) lead and lowered its guidance due to lower volumes in the Diagnostics business, Piper Jaffray analyst William Quirk tells investors in a research note. The analyst, however, believes the volume softness is "largely short-term" when excluding UnitedHealth (UNH) and provides a long-term buying opportunity. He keeps an Overweight rating on LabCorp but lowered his price target for the shares to $177 from $180 to "reflect this setback."

LabCorp downgraded to Hold at Craig-Hallum on headwinds ahead
As previously reported, Craig-Hallum analyst Kevin Ellich downgraded LabCorp (LH) to Hold from Buy as he believes volume and reimbursement headwinds will intensify in 2019 keeping a lid on the stock. While lower 23andMe volume is understandable due to lower than forecast Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, the analyst is concerned about lower volume from hospitals, which might be attributable to hospitals keeping more testing in-house, especially with physician-owned practices. Given the lowered 2018 outlook and increased pressure in 2019, Ellich also reduced his estimates and lowered his price target on the shares to $152 from $193. Overall, the analyst argues that lost UnitedHealth (UNH) exclusivity starts snowball effect as "Winter is coming" for LabCorp with lowered FY18 guidance.

UnitedHealth price target raised to $295 from $285 at Argus
Argus analyst David Toung raised his price target on UnitedHealth shares to $295 from $285 after the company projected strong earnings growth next year in both its UnitedHealthcare and Optum segments at its recent investor day. Based on the updated guidance he raised his adjusted EPS estimates for 2018 and 2019, noted Toung, who keeps a Buy rating on the stock, citing the company's expanding margins and strong growth outlook.
