09:38 EDTHUM, WLP, CNC, HNT, CI, HS, MOH, UNH, WCG, AGP, AETObamacare enrollment total not very relevant, NY Times says
After the White House said yesterday that more than 6M Americans have signed up for health insurance under Obamacare, The New York Times notes that it is not known how many of those who signed up paid their premiums. The total "has nothing to do" with whether the law is working or not, as it doesn't measure whether the premiums are affordable, or whether people like the coverage, the newspaper quoted Drew Altman, president of the Kaiser Family Foundation, as saying. Publicly traded healthcare insurers include AMERIGROUP (AGP), Aetna (AET), Centene (CNC), Cigna (CI), Health Net (HNT), Healthspring (HS), Humana (HUM), Molina Healthcare (MOH), UnitedHealth (UNH), WellCare (WCG) and WellPoint (WLP).

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.
