11:12 EDTJNJJohnson & Johnson technical notes before earnings
Leading up to earnings, the shares have been trading in a narrow range largely bound by $98 at the low and $103 at the high. This trading range was preceded by a decline from the 52-week high set back in the fall of 2014. In a longer time frame, the current trading action is part of a larger potential topping process, with $95 as the midpoint. On worse than expected news, the low bound at $98 would be first important support. A breakdown below $98 would see next support at $95. A move below $95 would confirm the topping process and break the long-term uptrend. Support below $95 would be at $93.94. If results and outlook are better than expected, first resistance would be at the top of the range at $103. Next resistance would then be at $105.36. A move above that level would see $107.10, and then 52-week high and life high at $109.49 as next potential upside objectives.

07:33 EDTUNHJefferies 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).
