UnitedHealth price target lowered to $300 from $330 at SunTrust

SunTrust analyst David MacDonald lowered his price target on UnitedHealth to $300 to reflect the compression in market multiples but also keeps his Buy rating on the company after the company's Q1 results that were "marked by solid core trends across both divisions and a well managed medical cost trend." The analyst notes that the industry concerns around Medicare for America and Affordable Care Act programs are weighing on the stock, but he sees "structural changes to the model as quite low" and remains "bullish" on the shares. MacDonald adds that UnitedHealth's free cash flows remain "robust", capital deployment opportunities are "plentiful" and its "valuation risk/reward is compelling."

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.

UnitedHealth 'starts season off right' with beat and raise, says Raymond James
UnitedHealth's stronger than expected Q1 EPS was driven by strong top line growth coupled with a lower Medical Loss Ratio, or MLR, and strong cost controls, said Raymond James analyst John Ransom, who contends that the company started "the earnings season off right" with its beat and raise report. Ransom kept a Strong Buy rating on UnitedHealth shares ahead of the company's earnings call. Post the call, UnitedHealth shares are down 4% to $220.45 in early afternoon trading.

Cantor says take advantage of sentiment to buy UnitedHealth after earnings
Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Steven Halper reiterated his Overweight rating and $310 price target on UnitedHealth shares after the company reported Q1 results that he called "strong" and raised its FY19 EPS guidance, stating that he did not hear anything "problematic" during the company's earnings call that would account for the reversal of the stock during the call and its subsequent weakness. He assumes today's weakness is related to ongoing concerns about "Medicare for All" proposals, which he views as "entirely overblown." While noting that "it is hard to fight the sentiment trade at this juncture in the short-term," Halper said that similar efforts have failed in the past and he expects the same will happen again this time, after which investors in UnitedHealth " should be well rewarded" over the long-term.

UnitedHealth comments outweighed 'strong fundamentals,' says Piper Jaffray
Both UnitedHealth (UNH) and the healthcare services sector traded down as concern over UnitedHealth's Medicare-for-All comments "outweighed strong fundamentals," Piper Jaffray analyst Sarah James tells investors in a research note. The analyst, however, sees positive read-throughs for the managed care organizations. James believes Senator Bernie Sanders' Medicare-for-All has "no chance" due to a number of factors including costs. The "more mild" Medicare buy-in versions are positive for managed care organizations but negative for hospitals, the analyst tells investors in a research note. She admits, though, that if sentiment is driven more by Medicare-for-All than rebates, the overhang could last through the Q1 of 2020 primaries or until support for Senator Sanders wanes. James has an Overweight rating on UnitedHealth with a $312 price target.
