After the market close on the company reported strong F3Q19 results that were ahead of our estimates and FactSet consensus. HQY raised its full year guidance ranges at their midpoints. We believe the company is poised for strong growth in F20. HQY’s 4Q is the company’s most active quarter for new member growth. The company also mentioned investments it will be making in 4Q and FY2020. The investments will be offset by a lower than expected tax rate. We maintain our view that the shares’ current valuation already reflects the company’s long-term growth potential." (12/6/2018)

HealthEquity is currently the third-largest HSA custodian by market share. In addition to HSA, the company offers health reimbursement arrangement (HRA) and a health flexible spending account (FSA) to regional employers. Apart from this, HealthEquity’s 401(K) solution that lowers the cost, risk and work of managing a retirement plan buoys optimism. Management is optimistic about the launch of HealthEquity retirement services. However, it faces stiff competition in the Medical Services market. Surging operating expenses are another cause of concern. The company is required to comply with strict Treasury Regulations formulated by the Internal Revenue Service or the IRS. The stock also looks a bit overvalued." (11/20/2018)
