What are analysts saying about LifePoint Health stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about LifePoint Health stock:
- 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)
According to Zacks Investment Research, "Life Point Health well poised to grow over the long term given a number of acquisitions made over the past few years that gives it a strong foothold in the industry. A number of divestures made in recent years have also helped the company focus on growth areas. Its strong balance sheet and consistent increase in operating cash flow enables it to use funds for share buybacks and acquisitions. However, the possibility of Trump repealing ObamaCare, increasing bad debts, expenses rising faster than revenue growth are some of the headwinds faced by the company. Year till date the share price performance of the company has lacked luster. The shares of the company tanked by 21.7% performing poorly compared with the Zacks categorized Medical Hospital industry decline of 10% over the same time period." (12/30/2016)
