Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about LifePoint Health stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "LifePoint Health’s acquisition pipeline remains strong and it sees several opportunities, including hospitals, health systems, and end-market transactions to expand its key services, which should drive its long term growth. A strong balance sheet with sufficient cash flows and a moderate level of debt are impressive. The stock has seen the Zacks Consensus Estimate for current-year earnings being revised upward over the last 90 days. The stock has, however, underperformed its industry, year to date. The company is faced with a challenging volume environment and weakness in revenue growth. Increasing expenses, which have outpaced revenue growth thereby squeezing operating margins, is another concern." (7/16/2018)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "LPNT reported in-line 4Q17 results, with revenue that is short of the FactSet consensus but adjusted EBITDA that was in-line. The company has, however, increased its provision for bad debt, and includes the new, more accurate estimate as an adjustment." (2/23/2018)
