Health care stocks, one of the worst performing sectors, could be poised to outperform even as election turmoil heats up next year. Now, better-than-expected earnings from both UnitedHealth Group Inc. (UNH) and Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) have highlighted health care companies' strong earnings amid a dim overall corporate profit outlook. Health care companies have strong underlying businesses, a factor becoming more attractive in the market as investors shift away from “riskier” assets and more expensive, loss-making companies. And from a valuation perspective, the weakness in the health care space has led many investors to buy health care stocks, which are selling at discounted prices.

UnitedHealth Group Inc. was downgraded by Jefferies analyst David Windley, citing concerns over competition from Anthem Inc. and and margins related to Medicare Advantage pricing. Windley cut his rating to hold from buy, and dropped his stock price target by 22% to $235 from $300. Windley's target is now the lowest among the 26 analysts surveyed by FactSet, making him the least bullish on the healthcare services company. Windley said Anthem's strategy to regain market share in the commercial group risk market "is showing traction," likely at UnitedHealth's expense. That suggests there is "more downside risk" to expectations when UnitedHealth management comments on the outlook for 2020. The company is scheduled to report third-quarter results on Oct. 15. UnitedHealth's stock edged up 0.1% in morning trading, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average rallied 157 points, or 0.6%. Windley also slashed his stock price targets on several other managed care organizations (MCOs), writing in a note to clients at that, "The primary poison in the punch bowl, political risk, won't likely abate for at least another 9 months."
