14:02 EDTHUM, AMEDAmedisys sinks after warning new deal will generate less revenue
Home health care provider Amedisys (AMED) is tumbling after the company renewed its contract with health insurer Humana (HUM), but predicted that the new deal would generate 50% less revenue than the previous agreement. The new contract may cover fewer markets and Amedisys will be paid on a per visit basis, rather than on an episodic basis as was previously the case, Amedisys reported. Amedisys, which noted that it had previously generated $65M-$70M in revenue from Humana each year, said the new agreement would begin impacting its revenue this quarter. However, the "full impact" of the deal won't be felt until 2013, the home health care provider added. In mid-afternoon trading, Amedisys sank $1.39, or 10.43%, to $11.94.

07:11 EDTAMEDAmedisys upgraded to Buy on industry and company tailwinds at SunTrust
As previously reported, SunTrust upgraded Amedisys to Buy from Neutral and increased its price target to $36 from $31. The firm believes the home health sector is extremely well positioned and applauds Amedisys' recent decision to abandon its AMS3 system and transition to Homecare Homebase. SunTrust said the transition will ultimately decrease both capex and IT spend and improve clinician capacity. In addition, the firm's analyst said Amedisys has added management talent and views the strong balance sheet and robust free cash flow as unappreciated.
