    It's all about management's commentary on EPS growth for managed care stocks, Deutsche's Scott Fidel says, noting that investors are already "expecting strong quarterly results based on continued subdued health care utilization trends." Watch the "tone" on the CCs for hints about the prospects for earnings in 2014 and "key revenue and margin drivers," Fidel adds. Price targets are hiked for Aetna (AET -1.8%), Cigna (CI -1.5%), Magellan Health (MGLN -0.3%), Health Net (HNT -1.1%), UnitedHealth (UNH -1.2%), WellPoint (WLP -0.4%), Humana (HUM +0.1%), Universal American (UAM -0.8%), Centene (CNC +0.6%) Molina (MOH +0.7%), WellCare Health Plans (WCG +1.1%), eHealth (EHTH -3%), and Healthways (HWAY -1.9%).

    UnitedHealth (UNH) CEO Stephen Hemsley indicates the company will offer plans on around 12 of the online exchanges opening this fall, down from original estimates of up to 24. UNH's approach reflects an industry-wide concern that "pent-up appetites" for health coverage among the sick will invariably mean the first customers are the costliest, leading companies like Cigna (CI), Aetna (AET) and UNH to take a "wait and see" approach. (Previous: UNH chief cautious on exchanges)
