  • Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "We are transferring coverage of Centene Corporation (CNC) and rate the shares at Overweight. Our 12-month DCF-based price target is $85, representing about 31% upside. Most investor concerns, including ACA repeal, changes in Medicaid funding and the acquisition of HealthNet, are overblown, in our view. While Congress debates repeal/replace of the ACA, we find it difficult to believe that the Trump administration will be able to unwind the Medicaid expansion component of the ACA. Also, block grants for Medicaid is not a new concept, and we believe structural changes to Medicaid are unlikely. That being said, we view Medicaid as a good growth opportunity. At the same time, CNC is building its Medicare Advantage business as well as its specialty offerings. We believe the risk/reward trade-off is very compelling." (2/6/2017)
  • FBR & Co analysts commented, "At its analyst meeting on Friday, June 17, Centene provided solid commentary regarding the integration of Health Net and its longer-term growth strategies. Management reiterated its 2016 guidance, which we view positively, especially given the lingering concerns regarding the need to increase Health Net reserves. Also, management indicated that it has visibility to 2017 revenue of $45 billion, which is in line with our estimate. Centene also indicated that it should achieve additional synergies from Health Net over time beyond the $150 million it previously identified. In our view, it is difficult not to be impressed with Centene’s growth, and future prospects remain strong, especially in Medicaid, Medicare Advantage, and individual exchange products. The shares offer ~34% upside potential to our DCF- based price target." (6/20/2016)
