15:29 EDTTHC, LPNT, UHS, HCA, CYHHospital weakness attributed to pending ACA suit ruling, says UBS
UBS attributes today's weakness in shares of hospital operators to concern that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit may soon rule on a case that challenges the IRS decision to offer tax credits to low income uninsured in 34 states, with the firm noting that the court's rulings are released on Tuesdays and Fridays. UBS expects the case to go to the Supreme Court, meaning a final ruling is likely 1-2 years away, and the firm thinks the high court will eventually find it hard to outlaw the subsidies. Publicly traded hospital companies include Community Health (CYH), HCA Holdings (HCA), LifePoint Hospitals (LPNT), Tenet (THC) and Universal Health (UHS).

14:00 EDTUHSUniversal Health technical comments ahead of earnings
On a long-term chart the recent price action within a narrow range appears to be a potential bullish pennant pattern. If there is a breakout above $142.60 on good news, the pattern would be active. Upside potential would be to the $150 to $152 area. If the news is a bearish surprise, a breakdown below the low of the recent range would be possible. A move below $139 would break support, with next supports at $136.26, $131, and $129.
