  • Goldman Sachs Starts Universal Health Services at "Buy" (UHS)

    On Tuesday, Goldman Sachs reported that it has started coverage on Universal Health Services, Inc. (UHS) at a "Buy." The firm has initiated coverage on UHS with a "Buy" rating and $87 price target. This price target suggests a 12% increase from the stock's current price of $76.90. Analyst Brian Zimmerman noted:."We view UHS's exposure to behavioral health as a positive given its consistent revenue flow even during periods of downturn." "Additionally, based on our micro industry model, UHS’s acute care facilities should outperform peers given their presence in areas with strong population growth. Revenue growth in both the behavioral and acute businesses are driven by admission growth and pricing." "In 2013, we expect behavioral adjusted admissions to grow and while we expect pricing to be weak, we estimate pricing growth to be between 2.1-2.3% in 2014-2015 and be a key growth driver as volume growth slows to 2%. On the acute side of the business, we expect revenues to grow substantially starting in 2014 as admissions grow as insurance coverage expands and bad debts are reduced," the analyst added. Universal Health Services shares were mostly flat during pre-market trading Tuesday. The stock is up 59% YTD.

  • KeyBanc Starts Coverage of Universal Health Services with a "Hold" Rating (UHS)

    On Thursday, analysts at KeyBanc initiated coverage of Universal Health Services, Inc. (UHS) with a "Hold" rating, but issued some positive commentary on the health care centers operator. A KeyBanc analyst commented, "Despite our HOLD rating, overall we are positive on the Company's diversified business, solid longer-term track record and the opportunity for the health care reform and the Nevada Medicaid expansion to return UHS's acute care operations to growth. However, we consider the current valuation as fair, particularly given the lack of visibility on how much the expansion of coverage will benefit the Company’s behavioral health division." The analyst continued, "The Company's leverage to the behavioral market differentiates it significantly from its peer group, creating an attractive growth avenue outside of today's mostly sluggish acute care business. UHS generates approximately 70% of its operating income in the behavioral segment, a market we expect to continue to grow over the next few years with the expansion of health care coverage to the currently uninsured." Universal Health Services shares were inactive during pre-market trading on Thursday. The stock is up 39.11% year-to-date. The Bottom Line Shares of Universal Health Services (UHS) have a dividend yield of 0.30% based on last night's closing price of $67.26 and the company's annualized dividend payout of 20 cents per share. Universal Health Services, Inc. (UHS) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.3 out of 5 stars.
