Raymond James upgrades Diplomat Pharmacy, sees number of potential suitors
Raymond James analyst John Ransom upgraded Diplomat Pharmacy (DPLO) to Outperform from Market Perform with an $8 price target. The stock closed yesterday up 14c to $5.86. Following the 56% share decline since the February earnings delay, Diplomat would represent value to a strategic buyer, Ransom tells investor in a research note. The analyst sees a number of potential buyers that would "covet" Diplomat Pharmacy's infusion franchise and could fold its large mail order business into an existing platform, including UnitedHealth (UNH), Cigna (CI), CVS Health (CVS), Anthem (ANTM) and Centene (CNC). Ransom thinks Diplomat's current fundamentals should motivate its board to step up its assessment of strategic options. He believes the company's collection of assets are underappreciated at current valuation levels.

Myriad traded lower on 'minor' United Healthcare change, says Piper Jaffray
Shares of Myriad Genetics closed Friday down 4% after United Healthcare (UNH) added a Current Procedural Terminology code and simplified the coverage rationale on its existing medical policy for pharmacogenetics, Piper Jaffray analyst William Quirk tells investors in a research note. The updated policy does not include a review of the Genesight dossier/Guided study, says the analyst. He views the change at United Healthcare as "minor" and keeps an Overweight rating on Myriad Genetics. Quirk continues to look for positive Genesight coverage.

Quest, LabCorp upgraded to Buy ahead of UnitedHealth lab network rollout
Jefferies analyst Brian Tanquilut upgraded both Quest Diagnostics (DGX) and Laboratory Corp. of America (LH) to Buy from Hold on the belief that UnitedHealth's (UNH) rollout on July 1 of its preferred lab network will be a positive catalyst for both stocks. Quest and LabCorp's likely inclusion should bolster their organic growth beginning in 2020, Tanquilut tells investors in a research note. The analyst finds both stocks "compelling" with their 2019 outlooks "seemingly de-risked with fairly conservative guidance ranges" and 2020 consensus estimates "looking conservative." Further, Quest's and LabCorp's valuations are at below-historical relative averages, Tanquilut contends. The analyst raised his price target for Laboratory Corp. to $190 from $154 and for Quest to $107 from $93.

Senate hearing a net positive for PBMs, says Cantor Fitzgerald
Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Steven Halper views yesterday's Senate hearing as a net positive for the pharmacy benefit managers. The PBMs represented were Cigna (CI), CVS Health (CVS), UnitedHealth (UNH), Humana (HUM) and Prime Therapeutics. Although the Senators were not supportive of the PBMs, the executives responded well to questions and put forth a solid effort to address concerns regarding their business model and incentives, Halper tells investors in a research note. Overall, he views the hearing as a net positive for PBMs "as the group was able to counter the negative sentiment with constructive responses, recognizing this story is far from over."
