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.

Almost Family 2016 setup even better than 2015, says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Brian Tanquilut says despite Almost Family being one of the best performers in his coverage universe in 2015, the stock's set-up for 2016 is even better than 2015. The company's three acquisitions since August 2015 will drive earnings growth acceleration and upside relative to low Street expectations, the analyst tells investors in a research note. He views the stock as compelling and keeps a Buy rating on Almost Family with a $58 price target.

Jefferies reiterates bullish stance on Amedisys
Jefferies analyst Brian Tanquilut says Amedisys (AMED), given its larger than peer market capitalization and stock liquidity, is the easiest way for investors to take advantage of strengthening home nursing sector fundamentals. Further, the analyst believes the benefits from the company's ongoing IT implementation remain underappreciated by investors. He remains bullish on Amedisys with a Buy rating and $59 price target. The company's peers are LHC Group (LHCG) and Almost Family (AFAM).
