"We were expecting most of the law to stand but thought the individual mandate might fall, which would have been a slightly more negative outcome for insurers, but still believe the law's greatest threat is from defunding if the Republicans come into power in November or if the Democrats hold power but are forced to downsize the expansions due to the 'fiscal cliff' Washington is facing after the election," Wells Fargo analysts wrote in a June 28 report. "However, we believe despite the downward motion today our favorite names (AET, CVH, HUM, UNH) should be purchased as the removal of the Supreme Court overhang should be viewed as a longer term positive."
