Covid-19 has more doctors going digital to maximize time and safety for medical workers

As Covid-19 floods hospitals in certain affected areas, doctor’s offices around the world are seeing their number of appointments spike as people come in to be tested for the virus.

In addition, some managers are demanding that their employees get “cleared” of the virus by their doctors before returning to work, even if they do not have any symptoms. Given how quickly the virus spreads, some doctors have even noted an unusually high number of clients with mild or no symptoms who want to be tested preemptively.

In response, family care doctors and general practitioners are increasingly moving online in

A gem with a short-term margin expansion opportunity at a reasonable valuation

Cerner Corp. (CERN) is a gem with a short-term margin expansion opportunity at a reasonable valuation. I am waiting to see if management delivers what they promise or for the stock to drop below $60.

The company is a leader in the health care IT industry, which has years of growth ahead. That being said, Cerner has room to improve in regard to efficiency. The new management, under pressure from Starboard Value, is focusing on improving operations in the short term. The valuation is reasonable, especially if management can deliver the operating efficiency as promised.

The favorable macroeconomic outlook will push Cerner's stock higher

Investment thesis

Cerner Corp. (CERN) is an internet technology company benefiting from the digitization of the health care industry. Revenue and earnings growth as well as the implementation of its first-ever dividend resulted in a 28.6% gain in 2019.

Even on the back of such a strong performance, shares are still trading with an upside potential of 7% based on the intrinsic value per share calculated using a discounted cash flow model. The total return for investors will be much higher as the company continues to repurchase shares and distribute dividends.

Health care information technology provider Cerner (NASDAQ:CERN) added 80 basis points to the Fund’s return, as its total return was 28.5%. The shares moved higher after activist firm Starboard Value announced an investment in the company. Cerner reached an agreement with the activist, promising to increase its operating margins, repurchase $1.5 billion of stock and add four new directors to its board. We’re pleased management is unlocking value, and we believe that Cerner remains well positioned to be a long-term winner in the health care sector.
