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.

UnitedHealth comments on 2020 eased concerns about MCOs, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Ricky Goldwasser noted that concerns over democratic presidential candidates' positions on "Medicare For All" have been weighing on the Managed Care Organization group since April when a bill was officially introduced in congress by Bernie Sanders. However, UnitedHealth (UNH) shares rose sharply, and the MCO group joined in yesterday, after the company reported an in-line Q3 Medical Loss Ratio, or MLR, and gave commentary on 2020 that eased market concerns around fundamentals, Goldwasser said. The analyst, who keeps an Overweight rating on UnitedHealth with a $294 price target, said the next catalyst for the MCO group will be Anthem's (ANTM) earnings report on October 23. Other publicly traded companies in the healthcare insurance space include CVS Health (CVS), Centene (CNC), Cigna (CI), Health Net (HNT), Humana (HUM), Molina Healthcare (MOH) and WellCare (WCG).
