10:08 EDTUNH, AET, HUM, WLPUnitedHealth 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.
