Mizuho Securities analyst Ann Hynes initiates coverage on Centene (NYSE: CNC) with a Neutral rating and a price target of $65.00.

The analyst comments "We are initiating coverage of CNC with a Neutral Rating and $65 price target. CNC is the bellwether Medicaid provider, boasting a national market share of ~19%. As a result, the company is positively leveraged to the current Washington backdrop. A major concern for us is the company’s M&A strategy, given the high dependence on forecasted growth from acquisitions. In a market where assets are becoming more scare, more competitive, and more expensive, we worry about financial discipline in order to achieve its long-term revenue goals."
