Analysts: UnitedHealth to Benefit from Obamacare and 3 More Research Notes to Look At

UnitedHealth Group Inc. (NYSE:UNH): Wedbush believes that United Health could benefit from the Affordable Care Act, since the decision to enable consumers to retain their health insurance plans through 2014 will enable insurers to retain profitable offerings; the firm notes that under the previous regulations, some people whose plans were discontinued could have chosen a plan on an exchange with uncertain margins or moved to a different insurer. For companies that are not offering many products on the exchanges, the regulation change could be a net positive, according to Wedbush, which identifies UnitedHealth as one such company.
