10:51 EDTUHS, LPNTHospitals advance after HCA preliminary results beat expectations
Shares of a number of hospital stocks are rising after one of the companies in the sector, HCA Holdings (HCA), preannounced stronger than expected second quarter results. WHAT'S NEW: HCA Holdings estimated that its Q2 EPS would come in at $1.07, versus analysts' consensus forecast of 92c. The hospital operator estimated that its Q2 revenue would be $9.23B, versus the consensus estimate of $8.86B. Moreover, HCA hiked its fiscal 2014 EPS guidance, excluding certain items, to $4.00-$4.25 from its prior view of $3.45-$3.75. The company added that its same facility admissions had risen 1.2% during Q2 versus the same period a year earlier, while same facility revenue per equivalent admission is expected to jump about 5.4%. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors earlier today, Wells Fargo analyst Gary Lieberman stated that it's possible that the Affordable Care Act was responsible for most of the amount by which the company's EPS beat the consensus outlook. As a result, he thinks that the company's full-year guidance appears "rather conservative." The analyst kept an Outperform rating on HCA shares. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Community Health (CYH) surged 8% to $46, Tenet (THC) rallied 7.5% to $48.33, Universal Health (UHS) climbed 5% to $96.44, and LifePoint (LPNT) advanced 6% to $65.06, and HCA Holdings gained 7.8% to $59.50.
