What are Wall Street analysts saying about LifePoint Health stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about LifePoint Health stock:
  • 1. 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)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "LifePoint Health’s stock has underperformed the industry in a year’s time, but its strong Value Score, attractive valuation and upward revision in earnings estimates presents a good investment opportunity. The company’s inorganic growth strategies have aided its overall growth. Disciplined share buyback also provides support to its bottom line. Nevertheless, the company trimmed its 2017 guidance for the second time on a challenging volume environment and weak revenue growth. The company is faced with increasing expenses which has outpaced revenue growth thereby squeezing operating margins. High bad debt is another concern as is declining cash flows." (1/22/2018)
