13:50 EDTCNCHumana surges after report says sale being explored
Shares of health insurer Humana (HUM) are surging in afternoon trading after a report claimed the company is exploring a potential sale after receiving indications of takeover interest. WHAT'S NEW: The Wall Street Journal, citing sources, reported that Humana has hired Goldman Sachs (GS) to help it explore a potential sale after receiving indications of interest. Some of the Journal's sources reportedly said Aetna (AET) and Cigna (CI) are among possible bidders. WHAT'S NOTABLE: After meeting with Aetna's (AET) management, Leerink analyst Ana Gupte wrote in a note to investors on May 12 that consolidation in the industry remains likely, adding that a deal between Aetna and either Cigna or Humana were both "meaningfully accretive" and "imminent" possibilities. The next day, Sterne Agee analyst Brian Wright said Humana was unlikely to be acquired with its stock where it has recently been trading. Wright, who added that speculation about a takeover is "wishful thinking," downgraded Humana shares to Underperform, the firm's sell equivalent rating, and cut his price target on the stock to $150 from $165. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other publicly traded companies in the space include Anthem (ANTM), Centene (CNC), Health Net (HNT), Molina Healthcare (MOH), UnitedHealth (UNH) and WellCare (WCG). PRICE ACTION: In afternoon trading, Humana jumped 17.33% to $209.33, Aetna rose 2.1% to $118.84 and Cigna gained 4.45% to $141.91.

10:55 EDTUHSProposed Medicaid rule positive for mental health providers, says Wells Fargo
After CMS released its proposed Medicaid Managed Care rule yesterday, Wells Fargo says the rule would allow for-profit behavioral hospitals to be reimbursed for providing services to adult Medicaid beneficiaries enrolled in a Medicaid Managed Care program. Acadia Healthcare (ACHC) and Universal Health Services (UHS) both own such hospitals, according to Wells. However, the firm adds that the rule would not change the regulations for fee for service adult Medicaid beneficiaries, who it thinks are likely the heaviest users of behavioral care, But Wells thinks that the proposal announced yesterday paves the way for behavioral hospitals to eventually be reimbursed for providing behavioral services to fee for service beneficiaries. The firm keeps an Outperform on Acadia and a Market Perform rating on Universal Health.
