  1. UNH is “In Play”

    UnitedHealth will report third quarter results tomorrow morning:

    UnitedHealth (UNH) will report third quarter earnings tomorrow before the open. There is a conference call scheduled for 8:45 ET.

    Capital IQ consensus calls for third quarter adjusted EPS up 10% to $3.76 with revenue up 5.7% to $59.84 bln. The company will update guidance for FY19, which currently calls for EPS of $14.70-14.90 and revenue slightly below the $243-245 bln range. Capital IQ consensus calls for FY19 EPS of $14.84 (+15% yr/yr) on revenue of $242.4 bln (+7.2% yr/yr).

    UnitedHealth has not missed EPS estimates in several years and has only missed on revenues two times over the past three years. The second quarter operating cost ratio of 13.9% improved 110 basis points from the same period last year, reflecting the deferral of the health insurance tax and continued effects of productivity advances and operating cost management disciplines.

    UnitedHealth is America” largest private health insurer. Healthcare stocks, including UNH, are out of favor in the face of political headwinds that could arise next year. Healthcare will be a key topic heading into the elections next November.

    Management acknowledged on a Q1 conference call that “Medicare For All” being proposed by more progressive Democrats would destabilize the health care system. Current Democratic nomination front runner Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has previously endorsed this policy, but support is currently insufficient to pass Congress.

    In addition, health insurers and hospital stocks are awaiting a ruling from the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in Louisiana. The NY Times reported that the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals appears likely to uphold Texas ruling that the individual mandate in the Affordable Care Act is unconstitutional, but are still in question about voiding the entire law. Ultimately, this case would end up at the Supreme Court in 2020.

    Based on the UNH Oct $243 straddle, the options market is currently pricing in a move of ~3% in either direction by Friday, October 18. On a positive report, look for resistance near the $227-228 area, while support sits near the $217-218 area.

    UNH has a market cap of $210 bln and trades at 14x EPS estimates, a slight discount to Humana (HUM) but a premium to Anthem (ANTM).

    UNH has reported earnings of 3.88 per share versus last year’s earnings of 3.41 per share.
