10:57 EDTHUMHumana Medicare Advantage rate view better than expected, says Susquehanna
Susquehanna says Humana's disclosure that it expects the CMS proposed 2015 Medicare Advantage rates to reduce funding by 350-400 basis points in 2015 is in-line with the firm's view and much better than expectations for 600-700 bps of pressure. The firm thinks further rate improvement is probable when the final rule is released in April, but stills believes rate pressure will be a significant challenge to Humana and the industry. Susquehanna has a Neutral rating on shares of Humana.

07:33 EDTHUMJefferies 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).
