Stephens says home health final rule looking like draft would weigh on providers
Stephens analyst Dana Hambly said he expects the final rule for home health reimbursement to be released by CMS in the first week of November. He is concerned that if the final rule looks similar to the draft rule, particularly regarding behavioral assumptions, it would weigh on home health stocks. For-profit, urban providers with higher percentages of therapy visits are estimated to take the largest cuts under a Patient Driven Groupings Model for reimbursement, said Hambly, who sees the impact being largest for Brookdale Senior Living (BKD) and Humana's (HUM) Kindred at Home. Others that may be impacted include Amedisys (AMED), Encompass Health (EHC), Ensign Group (ENSG) and LHC Group (LHCG).

Buy
CareTrust REIT upgraded to Buy from Hold at Stifel
As noted earlier, Stifel analyst Chad Vanacore upgraded CareTrust REIT (CTRE) to Buy and raised his price target to $21 from $17. The analyst says the company is poised for better FFO and acquisition growth, with added tailwinds coming from improved sentiment for the skilled nursing facility industry along with better outlook "under proposed PDPM Medicare payment model". Vanacore anticipates CareTrust REIT portfolio to improve in 2019 from new acquisitions and the strength of its primary tenant Ensign Group (ENSG).

Hold
Ensign Group downgraded to Hold from Buy at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst David MacDonald assumed the coverage of Ensign Group with a downgraded Hold rating and an unchanged price target of $55. The analyst says that he is positive on the company's "local structure and unique M&A strategy", along with its solid growth and value-unlocking pending spin. However, MacDonald notes that the upcoming changes in Ensign Group's reimbursement structure carry some "uncertainty" and also sees the risk/reward on the stock as "balanced" at 21-times his expected FY20 earnings multiple.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. U.S. Steel (X) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Matthew Korn saying he expects the stock to weaken as the market continues to absorb the effects of materially lower steel prices. 2. Box (BOX) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Canaccord with Canaccord analyst Richard Davis saying the company's fundamental position is "too strong" for it to be executing this sporadically. 3. Kohl's (KSS) downgraded to Underweight from Neutral at Atlantic Equities. 4. MercadoLibre (MELI) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BTIG with analyst Marvin Fong saying the stock's 94% advance year-to-date has fixed the "glaring price inefficiency" that its stock price had previously represented. 5. Ensign Group (ENSG) downgraded to Hold from Buy at SunTrust with analyst David MacDonald saying he is positive on the company's "local structure and unique M&A strategy," along with its solid growth and value-unlocking pending spin. However, MacDonald notes that the upcoming changes in Ensign Group's reimbursement structure carry some "uncertainty" and also sees the risk/reward on the stock as "balanced" at 21-times his expected FY20 earnings multiple.
