Overweight
UnitedHealth pullback on policy noise an opportunity, says Cantor Fitzgerald
Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Steven Halper says shares of UnitedHealth are attractive at current levels. He reiterates an Overweight rating on the name with a $310 price target ahead of the company's Q3 results on October 15. Optum will continue to be a strong growth driver for UnitedHealth, driven by solid performance across all three of the unit's operating segments, Halper tells investors in a pre-earnings research note. The analyst continue believe sweeping changes to the U.S. healthcare system, which has pressured the stock, are unlikely. Policy noise has created an attractive buying opportunity into UnitedHealth, says Halper.

Jefferies downgrades UnitedHealth to Hold, cuts Managed Care price targets
Jefferies analyst David Windley downgraded UnitedHealth (UNH) to Hold from Buy with a price target of $235, down from $300. Managed Care sentiment "turned abruptly negative a year ago and has stubbornly remained there," Windley tells investors in a research note. Further, the political risk causing this won't likely abate for at least another nine months, contends the analyst. In addition to the political overhang, he's concerned UnitedHealth's (UNH) commercial enrollment is at risk to Anthem (ANTM). Along with the downgrade of UnitedHealth, Windley cut his price target for Buy-rated Anthem to $299 from $365, for Buy-rated Centene (CNC) to $53 from $76, for Buy-rated Cigna (CI) to $203 from $233, for Buy-rated Humana (HUM) to $322 from $352, for Buy-rated Molina Healthcare (MOH) to $133 from $173 and for Hold-rated WellCare (WCG) to $264 from $302.

SunTrust 'bullish' across healthcare services space ahead of Q3 results
SunTrust analyst David MacDonald says he remains "bullish" across much of the healthcare services space ahead of third quarter results, citing "solid" core trends, "attractive" secular tailwinds, "robust" M&A and "strong" free cash flow. While he expects ongoing intermittent "chop" as industry noise continues to weigh, he views the risk of meaningful structural change as quite low, continues to favor scaled, integrated providers in the ongoing shift towards value and views valuation risk/rewards as increasingly attractive. The analyst tells investors in a research note that he does not necessarily view Q3 results as a meaningful trigger and thinks improved visibility around the election and Democratic primary is key, MacDonald remains bullish on core fundamentals, sees significant inherent sector drivers and says Managed Care remains a favorite fundamental sector. The analyst raised his price target for Anthem (ANTM) to $330 from $290, on Centene (CNC) to $80 from $72, on Cigna (CI) to $260 from $230, on Humana (HUM) to $340 from $310, on Molina (MOH) to $180 from $165, on UnitedHealth (UNH) to $330 from $310, on WellCare (WCG) to $340 from $320, on Ensign Group (ENSG) to $60 from $44 and Tivity Health (TVTY) to $24 from $21.
