13:50 EDTHUMHumana surges after report says sale being explored
Shares of health insurer Humana (HUM) are surging in afternoon trading after a report claimed the company is exploring a potential sale after receiving indications of takeover interest. WHAT'S NEW: The Wall Street Journal, citing sources, reported that Humana has hired Goldman Sachs (GS) to help it explore a potential sale after receiving indications of interest. Some of the Journal's sources reportedly said Aetna (AET) and Cigna (CI) are among possible bidders. WHAT'S NOTABLE: After meeting with Aetna's (AET) management, Leerink analyst Ana Gupte wrote in a note to investors on May 12 that consolidation in the industry remains likely, adding that a deal between Aetna and either Cigna or Humana were both "meaningfully accretive" and "imminent" possibilities. The next day, Sterne Agee analyst Brian Wright said Humana was unlikely to be acquired with its stock where it has recently been trading. Wright, who added that speculation about a takeover is "wishful thinking," downgraded Humana shares to Underperform, the firm's sell equivalent rating, and cut his price target on the stock to $150 from $165. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other publicly traded companies in the space include Anthem (ANTM), Centene (CNC), Health Net (HNT), Molina Healthcare (MOH), UnitedHealth (UNH) and WellCare (WCG). PRICE ACTION: In afternoon trading, Humana jumped 17.33% to $209.33, Aetna rose 2.1% to $118.84 and Cigna gained 4.45% to $141.91.
