Irma threat a risk for HCA, public hospital peers, says Cantor

Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Joseph France noted that HCA Holdings (HCA), Community Health (CYH), LifePoint (LPNT), Tenet (THC) and Envision Healthcare (EVHC) all have business in Florida and Texas and are all down today on the potential threat from Hurricane Irma and the impact from Hurricane Harvey last week. HCA reports nearly half of its beds are in Florida and Texas while Envision has said in the past that more than half of its anesthesia business and about half of its legacy ER business is in those two states, noted France, who adds that Community Health, LifePoint and Tenet are less exposed to those states. The analyst keeps an Overweight rating on HCA shares.

HCA has 11% of its beds in Harvey impacted areas, says Jefferies
Jefferies analyst Brian Tanquilut points out that HCA Holdings (HCA) has 11% of its beds in areas impacted by severe weather from Hurricane Harvey. The analyst expects the hurricane to cause a "notable disruption," specifically for hospitals, physician offices, surgery centers, and labs. Investors are likely to take a long-term view of Hurricane Harvey, however, as it is a one-time issue and thus excluded from operating and financial results, Tanquilut tells investors in a research note. He sees both Tenet (THC) and Community Health (CYH) being minimally impacted from the storm. Envision Healthcare's (EVHC) AmSurg segment has three ambulatory surgery centers in the impacted markets, while Surgery Partners (SGRY) has only one facility in Houston, the analyst adds.

Tenet 'short squeeze' shouldn't be chased, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Gary Taylor attributes Tenet's (THC) 32% advance over the last two sessions to a combination of several factors - a "short squeeze" due to fears of more activist activity; the timing of the announcement of Glenview Capital's resignation of two board seats and intention to "evaluate other avenues to be a constructive owner" during the thinly-traded final half of August; and competitors' Sum-of-the-Parts valuations that he deems "unreasonable." Taylor, who believes HCA Holdings (HCA) and other local systems will continue to have interest in certain Tenet hospitals, but is "somewhat skeptical that HCA would consider an outright purchase," would not be chasing the short squeeze and keeps a Neutral rating on Tenet shares.

Piper 'incrementally more bearish' on Hospital sector
Valuations in the Hospital sector have come in, but not enough, Piper Jaffray analyst Sarah James tells investors in a research note. She believes that contradictory to what the hospitals are suggesting, structural headwinds will continue for five-plus years. The analyst believes the group should be trading at a discount. James has an Underweight rating on Community Health Systems (CYH), Overweight ratings on HCA Holdings (HCA) and Universal Health (UHS), and Neutral ratings on LifePoint (LPNT) and Tenet (THC).

Fischbeck sees little up0side to shares and said HCA is the "best house on a bad block" and said he expects HCA to meet guidance on cost controls and not a volume ramp.

Community Health covenant breach a low likelihood, says Deutsche Bank
After analyzing his financial estimates and the company's financial position, Deutsche Bank analyst Chris Rigg believes the likelihood of Community Health Systems breaching its secured debt leverage covenant is low through 2019. The analyst says his analysis follows "market speculation over a near term credit event" at the company. He reduced his 2018 EBITDA estimate by 4% to $1.764B, which he notes is now well below consensus of $1.837B. Rigg keeps a Hold rating on Community Health with an $8 price target.

Leerink upgrades hospitals HCA, LifePoint, Tenet to Outperform
Leerink analyst Ana Gupte last night upgraded hospitals HCA Holdings (HCA), LifePoint (LPNT) and Tenet healthcare (THC) to Outperform from Market Perform. She raised her price target for HCA to $100 from $90, for LifePoint to $74 from $73 and maintains a $27 price target for HCA. The targets offer upside of 21%, 20% and 62% respectively. Anthem's (ANTM) announced exit yesterday from the key swing state of Ohio's healthcare exchange could bring further attention to the need for stabilization funding through legislation, Gupte tells investors in a research note. She believes improving policy under the Trump Administration could drive upside to 2018 and 2019 consensus estimates. Further, the analyst thinks medium term downside risk from Republican's repeal and replace healthcare bill is likely better than feared as publicly traded hospitals are "heavily weighted to non-expansion states," which lessons the impact of Medicaid expansion funding cuts.

Draft version of Senate healthcare bill better than expected, says Leerink
Leerink analyst Ana Gupte said she views the draft version of the Senate healthcare bill as better than expected, stating that stabilization of the Exchanges and risk stabilization is a direct positive for health insurers and indirect positive for facility operators. The Senate bill maintains the House bill's plan to repeal all "ObamaCare" industry fees and taxes, which is a positive for Managed Care and Medical Technology players, Gupte adds. She keeps Outperform ratings on Anthem (ANTM), UnitedHealth (UNH), Cigna (CI), Humana (HUM), WellCare (WCG), Molina Healthcare (MOH) and acute care hospital operators HCA Holdings (HCA), Tenet (THC) and LifePoint (LPNT).

Tenet turnaround may take several quarters to take root, says Morgan Stanley
Morgan Stanley analyst Zack Sopcak said Tenet's search for a new CEO and board changes are likely to drive short-term share gains, but he remains on the sidelines, citing the stock's 36% run-up in the two weeks prior to last night's announcement and his belief that it could be several quarters before a turnaround takes root. Sopcak keeps an Equal Weight rating and $15 price target on Tenet shares.

JPMorgan cautions against chasing shares of Tenet
JPMorgan analyst Gary Taylor expects shares of Tenet to move higher today after the company announced CEO Trevor Fetter is stepping down and that it adopted a poison pill a day in advance of the Glenview standstill agreement expiration. In a research note titled "Less than Meets the Eye?," Taylor cautions investors against chasing the shares. There is limited ability now for activists to compel change, and a base-case sum-of-the-parts valuation analysis yields an $8-$19 share price, Taylor tells investors. He keeps a Neutral rating on Tenet.
