Sterne Agee CRT analyst Brian Wright downgraded Humana (HUM) to Underperform saying speculation about a takeover is "wishful thinking" at current share levels. The stock rallied 4% yesterday after Leerink told investors that Aetna (AET) may acquire Humana or Cigna (CI) in the near-term. Wright also sees "material" risk to Humana's earnings guidance risk with paid claims outpacing premium growth. He lowered his price target for shares to $150 from $165. Humana shares closed yesterday up $6.76 to $173.38.
