What are Wall Street analysts saying about Acadia Healthcare stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Acadia Healthcare stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Acadia Healthcare’s shares have outperformed its industry’s growth year to date. In the past 60 days, the company has witnessed its 2018 and 2019 earnings estimates rise upward, which reflects investors' optimism on the stock. Better-than-expected earnings were driven by revenue growth led by the addition of beds. The company is well positioned for long-term growth on the back of its inorganic strategies. Its latest Priory acquisition has substantially enhanced its asset base, making it the largest independent provider of mental health services in the U.K. However, the company suffers from high debt, escalating interest expenses and foreign exchange fluctuations. Substantial integration risks associated with its frequent acquisitions are the major headwinds." (7/24/2018)
  • 2. Mizuho analysts commented, "fix the U.K. issues away from public scrutiny." The problem is the balance sheet's debt to EBITDA leverage of roughly 5.4x, which serves as a notable obstacle towards a go-private deal.But Acadia's woes are also domestic-based as the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) proposed on Friday a change to a rule that gives states more flexibility to interpret the ACA's 10 essential benefit requirements — one of which includes mental health."Given the national focus on mental health and addiction, we would be surprised if these benefits are at risk," Hynes also said. "However, it could provide an overhang on an already fragile stock." (10/29/2017)
  • 3. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "3Q17 falls short. ACHC reported 3Q17 adjusted EPS of $0.58 (including $0.02 of costs due to last month’s hurricanes), vs. our $0.64 estimate and the $0.65 FactSet consensus. Adjusted EBITDA was $152.3 million, vs. our $160.8 million estimate and the $163 million consensus." (10/24/2017)
