13:25 EDTLPNT, THC, HCA, CYHTenet advances after reporting beat and raise results
Shares of hospital chain Tenet (THC) are climbing after the company reported stronger than expected second quarter results and raised its guidance. WHAT'S NEW: Tenet reported Q2 earnings per share from continuing operations of 17c, versus analysts' consensus estimate of 1c. The company's revenue was slightly higher than expected. Tenet raised its 2014 earnings before interest taxes depreciation and amortization guidance to $1.85B-$1.95B from $1.8B-$1.9B. The company's same-hospital pro forma admissions rose 2.8% versus the same period a year earlier. "Our success at capturing incremental market share through strategic investments, service line expansion, and successfully positioning Tenet's hospitals to benefit from key aspects of the Affordable Care Act all contributed to a great quarter," said Tenet CEO Trevor Fetter. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors today, Mizuho analyst Ann Hynes wrote that the company's newly raised EBITDA guidance is likely conservative, as its earnings could be boosted by health reform, integration of companies it previously acquired and growth in its outpatient and healthcare services business. She raised her price target on the shares to $64 from $59 and kept a Buy rating on the stock. PRICE ACTION: In mid-afternoon trading, Tenet climbed 4.5% to $56. Other hospital operators also advanced, with Community Health (CYH) gaining 1% to $48, HCA Holdings (HCA) rising 2% to $67, and LifePoint Hospitals (LPNT) gaining 2% to $72.
