UnitedHealth CEO: Medicare for All would 'destabilize' nation's health system

David Wichmann, the company's CEO, warned that Medicare for All would "destabilize" nation's health system and limit the ability of clinicians to practice medicine "at their best." He feels Medicare for All would have a "severe" impact on the economy and jobs, "all without fundamentally increasing access to acre." He said the best path forward is to achieve universal coverage, which he said could be substantially reached through existing public and private platforms. Comments taken from UnitedHealth's Q1 earnings conference call earlier. Shares of UnitedHealth are down 3.3% to $222.86.

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."

UnitedHealth setting positive tone with 'beat and raise,' says Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst A.J. Rice says UnitedHealth is setting a positive tone with a clean "beat and raise quarter." The analyst notes that the company reported Q1 EPS of $3.73, ahead of consensus estimates, raised its 2019 outlook on improved 2019 performance trends and strong Q1 results. Rice reiterates an Outperform rating and a $310 price target on the shares.

UnitedHealth's Q1 'solid,' MLR beat 'unexpected,' says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Gary Taylor calls UnitedHealth's Q1 report "solid," with a 3.6% EPS beat on 1% revenue upside vs. consensus, telling investors in a research note that the Medical Loss Ratio, or MLR, beat was "unexpected" given upward pressure from the 2019 HIF Holiday and nearly four times faster government vs. commercial premium growth. Taylor questions whether the beat and modest raise will be enough to change the negative public sentiment that has pressured both the stock and the group year-to-date.
