What are analysts saying about LifePoint Health stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about LifePoint Health stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "LifePoint Health’s stock has underperformed the industry in last three months. The company is faced with increasing expenses which has outpaced revenue growth thereby squeezing operating margins. The company is suffering from low patient admissions. High bad debt is another concern. Following second-quarter results, the company trimmed its 2017 guidance on a challenging volume environment and weak revenue growth. The stock has seen the Zacks Consensus Estimate for current-year earnings being revised 2.9% downward over the last 60 days." (10/3/2017)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "We are reiterating our neutral rating and $55 price target, adjusting our 2017 adjusted EPS estimates and introducing 2018 estimates. Margins continue to be weak, and although we expect them to be relatively stable in 2017-18, our earnings outlook is generally lower than consensus and management's 2017 outlook. In our view, LPNT's acquisition strategy and joint venture have added some promising properties, but they are weighing on earnings as volumes remain disappointing." (2/21/2017)
