14:32 EDTPMPhilip Morris technical comments before earnings
The shares have been in a downtrend since a recent peak in price back in early November of last year. If the news is more bullish than traders appear to expect, the first level of significant resistance would be at $79.95 which is the 50-day moving average. A move back above that resistance line would see next upside at $81.08 and then at $82.57. Such moves would reverse the shorter-term trend to bullish. If the news continues to disappoint, the 52-week low at $75.27 would be first significant support. Looking at a 5-year chart, the important of the $75 area becomes clear. It was previously a pivot high in January 2012, and then support in early February of last year. A breakdown below this level would therefore have strongly bearish implications, setting a long-term topping process into motion. Support below $75 would be at $72.85.

07:33 EDTMOHJefferies sees low probability of WellCare, Centene buyouts
After running several acquisition scenarios for the Managed Care space, Jefferies says potential takeovers of WellCare (WCG) and Centene (CNC) are "hard to justify." The firm estimates acquirers will only be able to generate 1%-3% accretion from buying either company at a 20% premium to current share prices. The deal that makes the most financial sense is Aetna (AET) buying Cigna (CI), Jefferies says today in a note to investors. Also financially attractive would be a buyout of Humana (HUM) by either Anthem (ANTM) or Aetna, the firm adds. After analyzing the Managed Care space, it upgraded this morning shares of UnitedHealth (UNH) to Buy from Hold with a $141 price target. Jefferies also has Buy ratings on Aetna, Anthem, Health Net (HNT) and Molina Healthcare (MOH).
