Centene growth undervalued, political risks overdone, says Piper Jaffray
Centene's valuation multiple has compressed from 17 times to 11 times on healthcare reform risk that has little chance of coming to fruition, Piper Jaffray analyst Sarah James tells investors in a research note. The analyst believes the core Centene business has potential for long-term annual earnings growth in the 20% range. She believes the company's growth is being undervalued while political risks are overdone. The analyst calls Centene a top pick and keeps an Overweight rating on the name with an $80 price target.

Molina, Centene have most at stake from Texas Medicaid awards, says Citi
Citi analyst Ralph Giacobbe noted that Texas' "highly anticipated" STAR+PLUS contract for the states' higher acuity Medicaid members is expected to be awarded this Friday, June 28. Among the incumbents in the state, Molina (MOH) and Centene (CNC) have the most at stake, as their respective STAR+PLUS earnings contribute about 7% and 2%, respectively, of his and consensus estimates, Giacobbe tells investors. He estimates that the other incumbents - Anthem (ANTM), Cigna (CI) and UnitedHealth (UNH) - have 1% or less of their earnings at stake, adding that investor expectations are for the incumbents to largely retain business.

Centene 'a clear winner' in Oregon Managed Medicaid awards, says Stephens
Stephens analyst Scott Fidel noted that Oregon announced awards for the state's $6B managed Medicaid program, calling Centene "a clear winner" as it retained Lane county, where it maintains essentially all of its current 88,000 Medicaid members in the state, and added three other counties that serve 36% of the state's current managed Medicaid membership. Fidel, who notes the new contracts are expected to begin on Jan. 1, 2020, keeps an Overweight rating on Centene shares.

Iowa Medicaid MCO rate bump positive for Anthem, Centene, says Stephens
Stephens analyst Scott Fidel noted that Iowa agreed to an 8.6% rate increase in Medicaid MCO for the new fiscal year starting on July 1, calling the news a positive for Centene (CNC), which just began Medicaid operations in the state, and for incumbent Anthem (ANTM). Fidel, who thinks the rate increase should help improve margins for Anthem in Iowa and increase confidence in Centene's ability to achieve its initial targets there, keeps Overweight ratings on both stocks.
