    U.S. judge assessing CVS merger with Aetna orders hearing

    A U.S. judge who has been asked to sign off on a government agreement that allowed CVS Health Corp to buy health insurer Aetna ordered a hearing for April 5. Judge Richard Leon of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia issued the order on Thursday, saying that he wanted the hearing to discuss which witnesses, if any, should testify before he decides whether to approve the government's deal with the companies. The Justice Department approved the merger of CVS, a U.S. pharmacy chain and benefits manager, and Aetna in October on condition that Aetna sell its Medicare prescription drug plan business to WellCare Health Plans Inc. That deal has also closed.

    Health care ETF's 'bearish engulfing' chart pattern warns of an end to the recent uptrend

    The intraday U-turn in the SPDR Health Care Select Sector ETF has produced a "bearish engulfing" reversal chart pattern, which many technicians would say warns that the 2-month uptrend in the sector has ended. The ETF (XLV) opened $93.28, above the Friday's close of $92.95, then rose to a 3-month high of $93.45 in intraday trade before reversing course to close at $91.69, or below Friday's open of $92.22. Candlestick-chart followers believe this pattern suggests that after bears took the bulls' best shot, they launched a successful counterattack that have left bulls retreating. The XLV's decliners Monday were led by shares of managed care companies WellCare Health Plans Inc. , Anthem Inc. and Humana Inc. . Among some downside levels to watch are the 200-day moving average, which currently extends to $89.23, and the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement of the rally off the Dec. 24 closing low to Friday's high, which comes in at $85.38. The XLV has gained 6.0% year to date while the S&P 500 has run up 13.0%.

    Medicare for All Act clips managed care and provider stocks for a second day

    Shares of managed care and provider companies slumped for a second-straight session Thursday, in the wake of the introduction of the Medicare-for-All Act to Congress on Wednesday. The bill, introduced by Reps. Pramila Jayapal of Washington, Debbie Dingell of Michigan and others looks for a quick 2-year transition out of employer-sponsored coverage into single-payor Medicare run by the government. Analyst Gary Taylor at J.P. Morgan said he doesn't expect a quick snap-back rally in the managed care and provider stocks this week, but doesn't believe they could rally off lows by summer. He then expects that rally to fade into the second half of the year, as Democratic Presidential debates begin in the fall. Shares of UnitedHealth Group Inc. lost 3% to pace the Dow Jones Industrial Average's decliners, after losing 4.9% on Wednesday; Cigna Corp. sank 3.4%, after falling 4.0% on Wednesday; Humana Inc. shed 1.0% after dropping 4.8% the day before; WellCare Health Plans Inc. slid 3.3% after giving up 3.9% Wednesday; and Anthem Inc. declined 1.8% after losing 3.6% on Wednesday. In comparison, the Dow slipped 0.2% after easing 0.3% the day before.
