Universal Health downgraded to Neutral on valuation at JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Gary Taylor downgraded Universal Health Services to Neutral from Overweight with an unchanged price target of $147. The analyst says that while he does not have a "new active negative thesis" on the shares, he finds the stock "relatively fairly valued with limited catalysts." Universal Health's valuation continues to reflect a stronger secular EBITDA growth outlook than the company has been able to deliver over the last three years or is implied in 2019 guidance, Taylor tells investors in a research note.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Bed Bath & Beyond (BBBY) downgraded to Underweight from Equal Weight at Barclays with analyst Matthew McClintock saying he believes there is "limited, if any," visibility into a potential inflection point towards improving traffic trends. 2. Hawaiian Holdings (HA) downgraded to Sell from Hold at Deutsche Bank with analyst Michael Linenberg citing increased competition given Southwest Airlines' (LUV) plans for inter-island flying. 3. Enbridge (ENB) downgraded to In Line from Outperform at Evercore ISI and to Sector Perform from Outperform at Scotiabank and National Bank. 4. SunTrust (STI) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at UBS with analyst Saul Martinez saying his Buy thesis no longer holds due to the proposed merger with BB&T (BBT). 5. Universal Health (UHS) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at JPMorgan with analyst Gary Taylor saying while he does not have a "new active negative thesis" on the shares, he finds the stock "relatively fairly valued with limited catalysts."

Market Perform
Universal Health price target raised to $146 from $130 at BMO Capital
BMO Capital analyst Matt Borsch raised his price target on Universal Health to $146, citing its above-consensus outlook for 2019 announced last week. The analyst states that while the company remains "reliant on continued acute-care strength", the forecast has given him a better "view of expectations now that management has backed away from promises of near-term improvement in the behavioral side, which should strengthen its credibility." Borsch is keeping his Market Perform rating on Universal Health however, noting that its current valuation of enterprise value to EBITDA at 9.1-times is "fair" and implies only modest stock price upside.

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).
