WellCare Health Plans

The managed care services company is scheduled to report fourth-quarter earnings on Feb. 15. Analysts, on average, expect profit of $1.17 a share on revenue of $1.59 billion in revenue.

Bank of America Merrill Lynch analysts upgraded the stock on Jan. 20 to a buy from a neutral.

"Our view is that selling Medicaid and Medicare is evolving into a differentiated capability for WCG now that it covers more duals to cross-sell," Bank of America Merrill Lynch analysts wrote in the report. "The combination of better than expected revenues and strong margins returns yields a favorable risk/reward profile."

Shares of WellCare hit a 52-week high on Wednesday of $62.80. The stock's 52-week low of $30.53 was set on Feb. 3.

WellCare gets a B grade from TheStreet Ratings with a $73.84 price target. The stock has risen 18.11% year to date.

Alexion Pharmaceuticals

The biopharmaceutical company is scheduled to report fourth-quarter earnings on Feb. 9. Analysts, on average, expect profit of 34 cents a share on revenue of $220.8 million.

"We believe ALXN can achieve strong top-line growth relative to biotech peers, based on Soliris' market potential in PNH and other indications," Oppenheimer analysts wrote in a Jan. 23 report. "Near term, we expect ALXN to continue to drive robust Soliris sales growth in PNH through strong commercial execution and geographic expansion."

Shares of Alexion Pharmaceuticals hit a 52-week high of $78.05 on Wednesday. The stock's 52-week low of $41.65 was on Feb. 4.

TheStreet Ratings gives Alexion a B+ grade with a $98.37 price target. The stock has increased 8.24% year to date.
