What are Wall Street analysts saying about Community Health Systems stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Community Health Systems stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Community Health System’s shares have gained its industry in the past six months. It has been successfully continuing with its inorganic growth acceleration via acquisitions over the past few years. Frequent divestitures to streamline its core operations have helped it lower its debt burden. Over the years, acquisitions have played a key role in building Community Health’s growth trajectory. The company has also been putting in efforts to reduce its expenses. However, it has seen a persistent decline in revenues due to reduced admissions, which has been putting pressure on the bottom line. Moreover, a tepid 2019 guidance remains a concern for the company. A Zacks Rank #3 and an Earnings ESP of 8.63% leaves us confident of an earnings surprise as it is set to report its first quarter earnings on Apr 30." (4/24/2019)
  • 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "We rate CYH Neutral, but it has been especially volatile recently due to restructuring and uncertainty about the related operating and financial costs. 12-month price target of $6 is based on a blend of DCF and comparable-company analysis." (10/11/2018)
