Health stocks post best day in 10 months as Trump announces transparency rules
A popular exchange-traded fund that tracks the health-care sector saw its best daily return in 10 months on Friday after the Trump administration proposed new rules aimed at making health-care prices more transparent. The SPDR Health Care Select Sector ETF posted a 2.1%, marking its best day since Jan. 4, when it rose 2.98%, according to FactSet data. The Trump administration proposed a rule that would require health insurers to disclose estimated out-of-pocket costs, including negotiated rates, to patients in advance of a procedure or office visit. It also finalized a rule requiring hospitals to make transparent the prices they charge patients starting in 2021. It's possible that the stocks gained on doubts on how the rules would be enforced. "While the Trump administration's new hospital price transparency requirement is quite sweeping, the enforcement of it is quite weak - a maximum fine of $300 per day," Kaiser Family Foundation executive Larry Levitt wrote on Twitter. Shares of UnitedHealth Group Inc. , which is the largest health insurer in the U.S., and Anthem Inc. each rose roughly 5%. Shares of Tenet Healthcare Corp. and HCA Healthcare Inc. , both large hospital operators, were up at least 2%. The S&P 500 is up 24.4% year-to-date.

CenterPoint Energy's stock drops toward 17-month low after analyst downgrades, cuts price target
Shares of CenterPoint Energy Inc. slumped 5.0% in active afternoon trading Friday, putting them on track for 17-month closing low, after SunTrust Robinson Humphrey analyst Ali Agha downgraded the Houston-based utility, citing expectations of a negative outcome in the Texas rate case. Trading volume swelled to 13.6 million shares, compared with the full-day average of 4.6 million shares. Agha cut his rating to hold, barely 2 months after upgrading it to buy. He cut his price target to $27 from $32. "Yesterday's proceedings at the Texas [Public Utility Commission] are pointing to a worse-than-expected outcome in the Houston Electric rate case," Agha wrote in a note to clients. "While the final order has not been issued (we expect that to happen at the next commission open meeting on 12/13/19), it appears that the commission has firmed up key parameters that are significantly lower than expected." No less than eight of the 17 analysts surveyed by FactSet have cut their price targets in the past week, to lower the average target to $30.03 from $32.13 at the end of October. The stock has shed 8.1% over the past three months, while the Dow Jones Utility Average has gained 2.3% and the S&P 500 has climbed 11%.

Under Armour contends after Wall Street Journal report that accounting practices have been 'entirely appropriate'
Under Armour Inc. has issued a statement in response to a Wall Street Journal story, maintaining that its accounting practices have been "entirely appropriate." The Wall Street Journal spoke with former executives who said the company took a number of measures in the lead up to past earnings announcements, including redirecting goods to the off-price channel, in order to cover up slowing sales. "For many years, quarterly shifts in wholesale revenue related to timing of shipments based on financial goals; customer requests; year-to-year seasonal variance; different fiscal calendar alignments; product availability; logistics; and numerous other dynamics have been, and continue to be, part of the normal course of business practices in the apparel, footwear and retail sector," the Under Armour statement says. "In this respect, our process for recognizing revenue and recording returns and other allowances has not changed and has always been in compliance with generally accepted accounting principles." Last week, it was revealed that Under Armour was under federal investigation for its accounting practices. The athletic gear company also announced third-quarter earnings, which included a decline in North American sales and a downward guidance revision. Under Armour stock is down 17.1% for the month to date, and down 23.5% over the past year. The S&P 500 index is up 13.4% for the past 12 months.
