10:08 EDTHUM, AET, WLP, UNHUnitedHealth retreats after Citi cuts rating on shares
Shares of health insurer UnitedHealth (UNH) are dropping slightly in an advancing market after Citigroup downgraded the stock in a note to investors earlier today. WHAT'S NEW: United Health's stock doesn't justify a Buy rating at current levels, Citigroup analyst Carl McDonald wrote. The company has limited opportunities to increase its profits this year and its clients may utilize more health services, McDonald contends. Additionally, UnitedHealth spent a greater percentage of its revenues from Medicaid on medical expenses in the fourth quarter versus the previous quarter, the analyst noted. McDonald downgraded UnitedHealth to Neutral from Buy, but increased his price target on the stock to $79 from $77. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, UnitedHealth fell about 1% to $78.67. Other health insurers also declined, with Aetna (AET) giving back 0.5% to $71.25, Humana (HUM) losing 0.5% to $109.15, and WellPoint (WLP) declining 0.4% to $96.06.

07:16 EDTHUM, AETAnthem should be bought after Cigna offer, says Stifel
After Anthem, (ANTM) offered to buy Cigna (CI) and the latter company rejected the bid, Stifel estimates that the deal would have been 10% accretive for Anthem in the first year and 20% accretive in the second year. The firm thinks that accretion from the deal will probably be higher than expected. It also recommends buying Aetna (AET) as it believes that the Anthem offer suggests that Aetna will benefit more than expected from its own deal. The firm is cautious on Humana (HUM), saying that it may lose two potential buyers in Anthem and Cigna, while Humana may retreat if Aetna does not acquire the company quickly.
