Guru Investment Theses on Community Health Systems Inc

Baron Funds Comments on Community Health Systems - Feb 05, 2016

Shares of hospital operator Community Health Systems, Inc. (NYSE:CYH) fell in the fourth quarter on an earnings miss driven by lower volumes and deteriorating payor mix. Concerns that the Affordable Care Act tailwind is largely over and leveraged companies will be hurt by rising interest rates also brought out sellers. We think the spinoff of Quorum Health will create value, HMA synergies will exceed initial guidance, record numbers of recruited doctors will boost admissions, more states will expand Medicaid, and deleveraging will strengthen the balance sheet. (Susan Robbins)

Baron Funds Comments on Community Health Systems Inc. - Nov 10, 2015

Community Health Systems Inc. (NYSE:CYH) is one of the country’s largest hospital operators, with 31,000 beds in 29 states, primarily located in small and midsized markets. Shares were weak on concerns that Affordable Care Act tailwinds are largely over and that comps will be more difficult going forward. We maintain a positive view as we believe the spinoff of Quorum Health will create shareholder value, synergies from the merger with HMA will exceed initial guidance, more states will expand Medicaid, and deleveraging will accelerate. (Susan Robbins)

Baron Funds Comments on Community Health Systems Inc. - Aug 18, 2015

Shares of U.S. hospital operator Community Health Systems, Inc. (NYSE:CYH) surged with the U.S. Supreme Court decision to uphold subsidies under the Affordable Care Act, insuring that Community Health will continue to experience lower bad debt, higher volumes, and better payer mix under the law. First quarter results beat expectations as a strengthening macro environment and management initiatives helped drive improvements in core organic operating metrics, including admissions, surgeries and emergency room visits. We believe synergies from the Health Management Associates acquisition will exceed initial guidance, and we maintain our positive outlook for the company. (Susan Robbins)
