LHC Group, LifePoint Health expand partnership with two acquisitions

LHC Group and LifePoint Health announced the continued expansion of their partnership. The companies have finalized two transactions to purchase and share ownership of home health service providers in Hickory, N.C., and Danville, Va. LHC Group and LifePoint formed a joint venture to share ownership of home health and hospice providers across LifePoint's footprint in January 2017. In less than two years, the joint venture, which started with 20 home health and 10 hospice locations, has grown to include 33 home health, 14 hospice, and one home and community based services locations. In Hickory, LHC Group and LifePoint are purchasing and sharing ownership of Guardian Health Services. LHC Group has majority ownership and will assume management responsibility of the agency, which will continue to provide service from its current location under a new name: Guardian Home Health. Guardian Home Health will be affiliated with Frye Regional Medical Center, which is part of Duke LifePoint Healthcare. In Danville, LHC Group and LifePoint Health are purchasing and sharing ownership of Commonwealth Home Health Care. LHC Group has majority ownership and will assume management responsibility of the agency, which will continue to operate at its current location under the same name. Commonwealth Home Health Care will be affiliated with Sovah Health - Danville, a LifePoint Health facility.

INITIATION
UBSW
HCA Healthcare, Encompass Health, Universal Health initiated with Buy at UBS
UBS analyst Whit Mayo launched coverage of Healthcare Facilities with a broader research note titled "Navigating an Evolving Landscape - Who Will Be Left?". The analyst is most bullish on stocks that "discount the perceived secular sector headwinds" such as Buy-rated HCA Healthcare (HCA), Encompass Health (EHC), and Universal Health (UHS), adding that investors also under-appreciate the accelerating free-cash flow profiles of these companies. Mayo differentiates HCA Healthcare based on its 0% correlation in national hospital utilization trends against public results. The analyst is also bullish on LHC Group (LHCG), stating that its same-property admission growth projections are higher than the rest. Mayo rates Community Health Systems (CYH), DaVita (DVA), and Mednax (MD) at a Sell with a bearish view of dialysis, births, and inpatient surgery end-markets. The analyst sees Community Health Systems same-property volume trend at a relatively low rate. Mayo also gives Acadia (ACHC), Amedisys (AMED), Surgery Partners (SGRY), and Tenet (THC) a Neutral rating as part of this research note based on their relative valuation as a factor of same-property volume growth.

Outperform
LHC Group shares could see pressure ahead of call, says William Blair
While LHC Group's organic growth trends were strong in Q3, "this was not a clean quarter," William Blair analyst Matt Larew tells investors in a post-earnings research note.The sales miss and "disconnect from expectations," which were looking for a beat-and-raise quarter, could pressure the stock ahead of today's earnings conference call, says Larew. The analyst adds that LHC's earnings release came less than an hour after the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services released the final 2019 home health rule. Though this looks to be largely in line with expectations, Larew contends. He keeps an Outperform rating on shares of LHC Group.

Hold
LHC Group downgraded to Hold from Buy at Craig-Hallum
Craig-Hallum analyst Kevin Ellich downgraded LHC Group to Hold from Buy and lowered his price target to $92 from $99, telling investors in a research note that he believes uncertainty related to the potential rate cut in 2020 from Medicare's proposed Patient-Driven Groupings Model will remain an overhang on shares. While the final 2019 Medicare Home Health rule should be released in the coming days, the analyst does not expect any major changes from the proposed rule and uncertainty related to PDGM will likely keep shares of LHC Group range-bound in the near-term, especially with the stock trading at a hefty premium to its historical averages. Further, Ellich says that while he expects "solid" Q3 results and believe the integration of Almost Family is likely going well, he thinks guidance will be maintained and that Q4 consensus EPS appears "off due to the sharp increase in share count attributable to the Almost Family deal."
