11:42 EDTFASTFastenal technical comments ahead of results
The stock is trading close to the $40 level, a level that has been important support since 2011. When looking at a 5-year chart, the $40 area's importance is plain to see. If the news is negative and there is a breakdown below the $40 area it would be a major failure of support. In that event, support levels to watch as potential downside objectives would be at $38.56, $35.99, and $33.97. If the new is more bullish than the recent downtrend in price would suggest, the first major resistance level to watch would be at $45.11 which is the 50-day moving average. A breakout above the 50-day would see next resistance at $48.43, a pivot high from December 2014. While the moves up would be a near-term positive, the top of the trading range since early 2013 has been at the $53 area. It would take a breakout above $53 to turn the stock positive on a long-term basis.

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).
