What are analysts saying about UnitedHealth Group Incorporated stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about UnitedHealth Group Incorporated stock:

  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "UnitedHealth’s better-than-expected earnings were driven by strong results from both UnitedHealth Care and Optum segments. The company also reaffirmed the previously issued guidance for 2017, backed by stable medical costs, higher contribution from Optum and decline in exposure from its public exchange business. Shares of the company outperformed the Zacks categorized Medical Health Maintainence Organization industry. The company is consistently gaining from the Medicaid and Medicare businesses. Continued growth at Optum is also creating a diversified revenue source. The segment should see further growth from the Catamaran acquisition. Also, UnitedHealth should benefit from its capital strength and niche market position. Regular share buybacks and dividend increases are other positives. However, losses on public exchange business and higher operating costs are headwinds." (2/7/2017)

  • Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "We are transferring coverage of UnitedHealth Group (UNH) and rate the shares at Overweight. Our 12-month DCF-based price target is $200, representing about 24% upside. The company is nicely diversified within its UnitedHealthcare (UHC) health insurance segment. The reduction in losses relating to individual exchange plans should help UNH post solid bottom line growth in 2017. UNH is unique within our coverage universe given its Optum segment which accounted for 42% of consolidated operating profit in 2016. We expect continued strong growth in Optum in 2017. UNH should be a core holding in all large cap growth portfolios." (2/6/2017)
  • Credit Suisse Group analysts commented, "With phase I data for Radius’s SERD RAD1901 coming at SABCS next week, we wanted to share our thoughts heading into the data. Our top incoming question has been how many responses will we see?" and while management comments have been limited to the term multiple responses" our base case heading into the meeting is that we see responses in 3 of the 23 patients for whom we expect to see data (n=20 in expansion cohort and n=3 in the FES-PET study). To the extent this data looks encouraging and supports continued development, we believe the Street could begin to ascribe more value to the asset, which in our DCF accounts for $12/share of value (25% prob of $750mm peak sales). Beyond SABCS, we continue to expect approval for lead asset abaloparatide (osteoporosis) on March 30 and a positive CHMP opinion late-2016/early-2017." (11/30/2016)
