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.

Equal Weight
Ensign Group resumed with an Equal Weight at Stephens
Stephens analyst Scott Fidel resumed coverage of Ensign Group with an Equal Weight rating and $45 price target. He views Ensign as a best-in-class operator, but the skilled nursing facility vertical has experienced a challenging operating environment and the mix shift to MA in Medicare could add further long-term pressure, Fidel said.

Buy
Ensign Group upgraded to Buy from Hold at Stifel
Stifel analyst Chad Vanacore upgraded Ensign Group (ENSG) to Buy from Hold after the company provided 2020 guidance that points to accelerating growth. Given the company's continuing real estate acquisitions and its agreement with Pennant Group (PNTG) to fund future senior living acquisitions, Vanacore said he sees a potential real estate spin-off or sale on the horizon. Vanacore lowered his price target on Ensign to $51 from $56.

Fly Intel: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Lowe's (LOW) upgraded to Overweight from Equal Weight at Barclays with analyst Karen Short saying total comp expectations for Q3 may be too high due to the expected drag from Canada as well as ongoing weakness in e-commerce, but believe the U.S. comp estimate of 3.6% "is what matters and is more achievable." 2. Sony (SNE) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at UBS. 3. Ensign Group (ENSG) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Stifel with analyst Chad Vanacore saying he sees a potential real estate spin-off or sale on the horizon. 4. Lyft (LYFT) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Goldman Sachs with analyst Heath Terry saying the company reported better than expected Q3 revenue and management noted a trend toward higher prices across the industry, incremental engagement per rider, and a less promotional competitive environment. 5. Brinker (EAT) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Piper Jaffray with analyst Nicole Miller Regan saygin the company's return to EBITDA growth should drive a re-rating of the multiple. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.
