11:10 EDTCIHealth insurers rise after CMS releases preliminary Medicare Advantage rates
The shares of a number of health insurers are rising after the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or CMS, issued preliminary 2016 Medicare Advantage rates. According to Credit Suisse, the rates were favorable for health insurers. WHAT'S NEW: On Friday after the market closed, CMS issued a proposal for 2016 Medicare Advantage rates. The rates are preliminary and could change when CMS announces the final 2016 rates on April 6 of this year, the agency noted. In a note to investors earlier today, Credit Suisse analyst Ralph Giacobbe estimated that, under CMS' initial proposal, insurers would see rate changes of between -1% and +1%, depending on the risk that each insurer faces. The preliminary rates were "favorable" for insurers, since the rates were "in-line if not slightly better" than investors had expected, the firm stated. Moreover, CMS decided not to restrict at-home health risk assessments, as had been feared, and agreed to reduce the weighting of certain risk factors that had hurt previously certain plans with a higher proportion of low-income beneficiaries, acceding to a request by insurers. Insurers with the highest exposure to Medicare Advantage include Humana (HUM), UnitedHealth (UNH), and WellCare (WCG), the analyst stated. WHAT'S NOTABLE: After analyzing CMS' proposal, health insurer Aetna (AET) estimated that the proposal would cause government funding for its Medicare Advantage business to decline by about 1% in 2016. Aetna added that it is continuing to evaluate the changes outlined in the Advance Notice and their impact on the company and its Medicare Advantage members. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other publicly traded health insurance companies include Anthem (ANTM), AMERIGROUP (AGP), Centene (CNC), Cigna (CI), Health Net (HNT), Healthspring (HS), and Molina Healthcare (MOH). PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Humana climbed 5.3% to $164.43, UnitedHealth rose 2.6% to $115.56, WellCare gained 6.3% to $90, Aetna advanced 2% to $99.91, and Centene added 3.4% to $61.93.

07:42 EDTNBLNoble Energy sees FY15 total sales volume to average 295-315 MBoe/d
Liquids volumes are expected to represent 43% of the total volume, with the remaining product split estimated to be 33% U.S. natural gas and 24% international gas. Approximately 70% of global crude oil production and 48% of U.S. natural gas production is hedged. Sales volumes are projected to be up more than 5% in the DJ Basin and 40% in the Marcellus Shale. In the Gulf of Mexico, volumes are anticipated to be slightly down on average for the year. In the fourth quarter of 2015, the Big Bend field is anticipated to come on production, followed by Dantzler around the end of 2015 and Gunflint by mid-2016. Sales volumes in Israel are projected to increase 10%, driven by an increase in demand. West Africa volumes are expected to be down around 15%, with approximately half of the decrease due to natural declines at the Alba and Aseng fields. Planned facility downtime associated with the ongoing compression project at Alba and a plant turnaround at the methanol facilities account for the remainder of the decrease.

07:37 EDTNBLNoble Energy reports Q4 total sales volumes averaged 315K MBoe/d
Total sales volumes were up primarily as a result of the Company's continued horizontal development of the DJ Basin and Marcellus Shale resource plays. Noble Energy's onshore horizontal production was 50 percent higher in the fourth quarter of 2014 versus the same period in 2013. Liquids comprised 44% of total company fourth quarter 2014 volumes, with natural gas the remaining 56%. U.S. volumes for the quarter totaled 192 MBoe/d, while International sales volumes were 123 MBoe/d. Total sales volumes were higher than produced volumes by more than three thousand barrels per day due to the timing of liftings in Equatorial Guinea, primarily at the Alba field.
