DOWNGRADE

WellCare downgraded to Hold at Argus on Centene merger
Argus analyst David Toung downgraded WellCare (WCG) to Hold after it agreed to be acquired by Centene (CNC) in a $17.3B deal or at $305.39 per share. The analyst notes that because the deal would yield an entity that is smaller than the insurance industry giants, it may receive a more favorable treatment from the regulators than the failed Aetna (AET) -Humana (HUM) and Anthem (ANTM)-Cigna (CI) deals, but warns that some antitrust scrutiny is still possible due to overlaps between the companies in a few states. Toung adds that the new company would have "strengths in Medicare Advantage and Medicaid, both of which are growing markets."

Issues facing healthcare sector now 'modest' compared to 2008-10, says Stephens
Stephens analyst Scott Fidel noted that the managed care group has sharply underperformed the S&P 500 over the last month amid "political rhetoric" around point-of-sale drug rebates and Medicare for all policy proposals, though he believes the issues facing the sector right now "seem modest in comparison" to the "dark days of 2008-2010." While recent Medicare for all proposals have rattled investors, "they will face enormous uphill battles," Fidel tells investors. Hospital stocks have outperformed MCOs year-to-date, but the group declined about 9% yesterday and underperformed the MCO group, which Fidel attributes to acknowledgement by industry bellwether UnitedHealth (UNH) of the significant disruptive nature of Medicare for all, which may have sparked additional fears, as well as one less calendar day being called out by UnitedHealth as benefiting Q1 MLRs and Johnson & Johnson's (JNJ) earnings call commentary on declining sequential hospital admissions from Q4. Publicly traded companies in the hospital space include Community Health (CYH), HCA Healthcare (HCA), LifePoint (LPNT), Tenet (THC) and Universal Health (UHS). Publicly traded companies in the managed care space include Anthem (ANTM), CVS Health (CVS), Centene (CNC), Cigna (CI), Health Net (HNT), Humana (HUM), Molina Healthcare (MOH), UnitedHealth (UNH) and WellCare (WCG).

Medicare-For-All risk overblown, investors should buy MCOs, says SVB Leerink
SVB Leerink analyst Ana Gupte believes Medicare-For-All risk is overblown, not the same as 2008/09, and recommends investors step in now to buy MCOs. The analyst believes it is a "once in a decade opportunity" to get high quality names at these depressed multiples, with UnitedHealth (UNH), Anthem (ANTM), and Humana (HUM) being her favorites.

Buy
Anthem initiated with a Buy at UBS
UBS analyst Whit Mayo started Anthem with a Buy rating and $294 price target. The analyst forecasts "industry-leading" 20% earnings growth through 2020. Current share levels price in negative long-term growth, resemble 2012-2013 sector discounts, and offer up a favorable 2.2:1 upside/downside, Mayo tells investors in a research note.
