11:04 EDTCI, WCG, WLP, CNC, HNT, HS, MOH, UNH, AGP, AET, HUMCiti cuts Humana to Sell following recent rally in shares
Citigroup downgraded health insurer Humana (HUM) to Sell from Neutral in a note to investors earlier today. WHAT'S NEW: Humana's strategy of looking to recruit more members while deemphasizing profit margins is "riskier," Citigroup analyst Carl McDonald wrote in a note to investors. Moreover, Humana has estimated that Medicare reimbursement rates are likely to decline 3.5%-4% next year. Meanwhile, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has proposed a rule that would force insurance companies to pay for at-home visits of certain patients in order to assess their condition, the analyst added. Humana has said its outlook for Medicare rates does not include the costs of this rule, and has warned that the rule could have a "significant" negative impact on Medicare rates next year, McDonald wrote. The company's risk/reward ratio "doesn't seem great" ahead of April 7, he contended. On that date, CMS is expected to announce final 2015 reimbursement rates for Medicare Advantage. McDonald kept a $95 price target on Humana. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other publicly traded health insurers include AMERIGROUP (AGP), Aetna (AET), Centene (CNC), Cigna (CI), Health Net (HNT), Healthspring (HS), Molina Healthcare (MOH), UnitedHealth (UNH), WellCare (WCG) and WellPoint (WLP).PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Humana added 0.9% to $111.50.
