Guru Investment Theses on DaVita HealthCare Partners Inc

Baron Funds Comments on DaVita HealthCare Partners Inc. - Nov 22, 2013


We initiated a position in DaVita HealthCare Partners, Inc. (NYSE:DVA), a leading provider of kidney dialysis services for patients suffering from end stage renal disease. Through the acquisition of HealthCare Partners (HCP), DaVita also provides coordinated, outcomes-based medical care through physician networks in certain U.S. geographies. We think DaVita is well positioned to capitalize on trends in U.S. healthcare. The dialysis business generates steady growth driven by the increased prevalence of diabetes and has additional growth opportunities from international expansion and integrated care. HCP contracts with health plans and is accountable for the healthcare of its patients in exchange for a fixed fee. In this way, HCP is incentivized to deliver high quality healthcare at low cost. We think DaVita has an opportunity to bring HCP's successful model into new markets and is well positioned to benefit from the shift from fee-for-service reimbursement to risk-sharing and coordinated care. (Neal Kaufman)

DaVita HealthCare Partners is a Great Business With Solid Growth Potential
Healthcare is a scary sector for many value investors. It sounds complicated – and often is. But DaVita HealthCare Partners is different. DaVita derives the majority of its revenues from its market-leading position in a market that has inelastic demand – kidney dialysis. It also recently acquired a more speculative business that has enormous growth potential. To top it all off, Warren Buffett (Trades, Portfolio)-anointed investment manager Ted Weschler has been buying a stake in DaVita for Berkshire. At the very least, this is a stock that every value investor should become familiar with. Read more...
