As recently as May 15, the U.S. stock market hit record highs. This might be a good time to take a few chips off the table. Some reasons:

  • Stocks are pricey, at 25 times earnings, versus a normal level around 15.
  • The Federal Reserve will likely be raising rates in the next two years, not lowering them.
  • The market has gone eight years without a decline for a calendar year.
  • President Trump is a divisive figure and an inexperienced leader.
  • The old market adage, “Sell in May and go away,” has some truth in it. More than 90% of the

Expect lots of volatility for the company in the near term, but what is the outlook for the longer term?

A small earthquake shook the health care industry on the morning of Nov. 9 when it became clear a new administration would take charge, an administration that promised a major overhaul of the system.

What effect will this have on the long-term future of Universal Health Services (UHS), one of the big names in the field and the operator of numerous acute care and behavioral health facilities?

Does it have the earnings and cash flow power to withstand potentially bad news when the new administration takes office in January?

Earnings season has been decent but not dazzling so far

We’re in the height of the earnings season with plenty of companies still left to deliver their third-quarter results. Largely, it’s been a decent if unspectacular earnings season. There have been plenty of winners, like Netflix (NFLX) and Amazon (AMZN). However, there have also been some companies that have experienced dramatic drops due to poor earnings.

Some of these companies are dealing with long-running issues and show few signs of improving. Others are typically strong but suffered from an underwhelming quarter that could be righted in time for the fourth quarter. Here are a few of

Guru stock highlight

Shares of hospital operator Community Health Systems, Inc. (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.

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.

Hedge fund manager Richard Perry (Trades, Portfolio) co-founded Perry Capital LLC more than a quarter of a century ago. His first major investment was Florists' Transworld Delivery (FTD), which he sold for a profit of more than $300 million. His firm’s records in recent years – returns of 14.6% last year and 25.2% the year before – speak for themselves.

Perry’s largest purchase of the second quarter propelled his existing stake in Williams Companies Inc. (WMB), an oil and gas company based in Tulsa, Okla., to second-most valuable in his portfolio. Perry nearly tripled his stake in

Shares of U.S. hospital operator Community Health Systems, Inc. (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.

Community Health Systems, Inc. (CYH) is one of the largest hospital operators in the U.S., with a focus on small and mid-sized markets in 29 states. Shares rose on strong second quarter results, driven by higher utilization and an improved payor mix stemming from health care reform and the improving economy. Management’s volume initiatives are taking hold. More states with large Community footprints are pursuing Medicaid expansion. Finally, the integration with HMA is going well, and we think synergies will ultimately exceed initial guidance. (Susan Robbins)
