What are Wall Street 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, Inc.’s shares have outperformed its industry’s growth in the past six months. Moreover, the company has witnessed its 2018 earnings estimates move upward over the past seven days. It is in the process of being merged with RCCH HealthCare Partners, which would add scale and size to the business. Its acquisition pipeline remains strong with several opportunities in hospitals, health systems and end-market transactions for expansion of its key services. Nevertheless, the company is suffering from low patient admissions which remains a headwind. A pullback of insurers from public exchanges has increased the uninsured rate, which is hurting the company. Its admissions are likely to remain under pressure as it continues to divest its hospitals. Escalating expenses is another concern for the company." (10/23/2018)
  • 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)
