Humana initiated with a Hold at Deutsche Bank

Deutsche Bank analyst George Hill initiated Humana with a Hold rating and a price target of $319 as part of a broader research note on Healthcare Technology & Services. The analyst notes that while the company is a leader in the Medicare Advantage space, it is only a "middling performer" in most parts of his selection framework and also trades at a premium valuation in the MCO space.

Humana price target raised to $340 from $320 at SunTrust
SunTrust analyst David MacDonald raised his price target on Humana to $340 after its "superb" Q2 results on "noticeable" Medicare Advantage strength and "attractive" utilization trends. The analyst keeps his Hold rating however and sees risk-reward on the stock as balanced amid increased competition.

Louisiana loss a 'surprising negative' for Centene, says Wells Fargo
Louisiana selected four managed care providers for its Medicaid contracts and the winners included Humana (HUM), UnitedHealth (UNH), AmeriHealth Caritas, and Community Care Health Plan/Healthy Blue, Wells Fargo analyst Peter Costa tells investors in a research note. The loss is a "surprising negative" for Centene (CNC), which also failed to get a statewide contract in North Carolina, says Costa. The analyst would not be surprised to see a protest filed by Centene and/or CVS Health (CVS), who was also not selected. He estimates Centene could lose about $2.4B in premiums and about 13c in earnings per share while CVS could lose about $600M in premiums or about 1c in earnings per share.

Humana upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Cantor Fitzgerald
Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Steven Halper upgraded Humana to Overweight from Neutral and raised his price target for the shares to $345 from $300. The company's Louisiana Medicaid contract award demonstrates its success outside Medicare, Halper tells investors in a research note. Further, the analyst believes Humana's investments in population health management and social determinants of health will accelerate its growth over time.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Humana (HUM) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Cantor Fitzgerald with analyst Steven Halper saying the company's Louisiana Medicaid contract award demonstrates its success outside Medicare. 2. Instructure (INST) upgraded to Outperform from Perform at Oppenheimer with analyst Brian Schwartz saying he sees a good self-help story. 3. Apple Hospitality REIT (APLE) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Barclays with analyst Anthony Powell saying with "strong" cash returns, a lower mix of higher price urban markets, and higher mix of suburban and non-top 25 markets, Apple Hospitality offers exposure to "differentiated demand trends and relatively stable cash flows" within the lodging real estate investment trust subsector. 4. James Hardie (JHX) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at UBS. 5. Zimmer Biomet (ZBH) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Argus. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.
