Barclays starts Hospital sector with Neutral outlook, top pick HCA
Barclays analyst Steve Valiquette initiated coverage of the Hospital sector with a Neutral rating. Operators continue to face incremental pressures from alternative payment models that are shifting incentives towards lower-cost sites of care, Valiquette tells investors in a research note. He believes, however, that despite industry headwinds, operators levered to markets with high population growth and high relative market share will continue to outperform the industry. The analyst's only Overweight rated name in space is HCA Healthcare (HCA). The analyst initiated coverage of HCA with an Overweight rating and $150 price target. He sees HCA as well positioned in local markets. Valiquette also started Universal Health Services (UHS) and Tenet Healthcare (THC) with Equal Weight ratings. His lone Underweight rating is put on Community Health Systems (CYH). The company is still burdened with excessive debt and constrained free cash flow from its rural hospital footprint, Valiquette contends.

Universal Health upgraded to Buy on accelerating growth at BofA/Merrill
As previously reported, BofA/Merrill upgraded Universal Health to Buy from Neutral and raised its price target to $155 from $128. Analyst Kevin Fischbeck expects the company's psych business to reaccelerate and reach its 5% growth goal as it nears the Department of Justice settlement and easier comps in 2H. The analyst also expects Universal's acute care business to continue to perform better given exposure to higher growth markets.

Piper more positive on Universal Health on improving nurse shortage
Piper Jaffray analyst Sarah James says she see signs Universal Health Services' primary barrier to achieving Psych revenue growth, namely a nurse shortage, is improving. The analyst, while admiring that it's early and pointing out that she still has concerns for the second half of 2018, says she's beginning to see the potential of reopening beds in 2019. Piper's nursing shortage tracker shows that September marked the fourth sequential month of lower shortages in focus hospitals, James tells investors in a research note. The analyst is cautious to call this a trend, but sees signs of improvement and is incrementally more positive on Universal Health. She keeps a Neutral rating on the shares with a $118 price target.
