Overweight
UnitedHealth positioned to outperform in 2019, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Sarah James said there "was so much focus" on UnitedHealth's (UNH) earnings call on its medical loss ratio, or MLR, that it pressured the stock early in the day, but she is not concerned. When accounting for adjustments and if one accounts for some Medicaid pressure, UnitedHealth had some improvement in MA or commercial, which could be positive for Humana (HUM) or Anthem (ANTM), according to James. UnitedHealth was also clear in post call conversation that Medicaid headwinds in 2018/19 were largely company specific, which James said leaves her feeling good heading into earnings from Centene (CNC), Molina Healthcare (MOH) and WellCare (WCG). She reiterates her Overweight rating on UnitedHealth, as James sees potential for upside to her earnings estimates and believes the stock is positioned to outperform the group in 2019 as investors move to safer positions.

Overweight
Centene 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 Centene with an Overweight rating and $147 price target, citing the company's outlook for about 20% revenue and adjusted EPS growth in 2019, the potential near-term catalyst of the upcoming $6.4B North Carolina managed Medicaid contract award and the 17% pullback in the stock in the past 3 months.

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.
