Investor seeks investigation into Community Health recent spinoff, WSJ reports

Community Health (CYH) has come under fire from an investor, who is seeking an investigation into the recent spinoff by the embattled hospital chain, according to The Wall Street Journal. Q Investments LP sent a letter to Quorum Health (QHC), the chain of 38 hospitals that Community Health spun off, asking it to investigate whether Community Health concealed costs as it prepared the spinoff to enable it to extract more cash from the transaction, the publication said.

Citi sees low probability of Community Health sale
After Bloomberg reported, and the company just confirmed, that Community Health Systems is exploring its options, Citi analyst Ralph Giacobbe says he sees a low probability of an outright sale. The analyst is hard-pressed to find a buyer given the company's "weak operating trends and already high leverage."Community Health is likely to try selling assets to de-lever, Giacobbe tells investors in a research note. He keeps a Neutral rating on the shares with a $14 price target.

BofA/Merrill thoughts on Community Health exploring strategic alternatives
According to Bloomberg, Community Health is exploring strategic options, including a potential sale of the company. BofA/Merrill analyst Kevin Fischbeck does not view public companies as a good strategic fit for Community Health as many are focused on larger urban hospitals or prefer smaller deals. Fischbeck said other options include a private equity acquisition, a sale-leaseback to a REIT, or combination of the two. The analyst said Community Health's fundamentals have been weak, which is the biggest factor in doing a deal now as it be hard to lever company or do a sales/leaseback without better visibility into cash flows. Fischback rates Community Health an Underperform with a $10 price target.
