Mizuho Securities upgraded UnitedHealth Group (NYSE: UNH) from Neutral to Buy with a price target of $178.00.

Analyst Sheryl Skolnick commented, "Despite the still-uncertain politics of health care, we are raising our rating on UNH shares to Buy/$178 PT. UNH made a compelling argument at its Investor Day that its balanced portfolio and growth, its innovative approaches and its commitment to fixing a broken health care system likely insulate it from downside due to political change, at least in 2017. How could we not upgrade when all of those 'Optumized' strategies we've focused on for years are finally coming of age? UNH is, in our view, distinct and worthy of a premium multiple for sustainable double-digit EPS growth."
