Mizuho analyst Ann Hynes has tweaked her price targets for Community Health Systems and LifePoint Hospitals in the last day and change. She now sees CHS heading to $29 instead of $27, which has helped give the stock (Ticker: CYH) a kick in the rear: It is changing hands mid-day around $29.70, up more than 8 percent on the day. Broader optimism also has helped LifePoint — which last week missed its expected Q3 numbers badly — climb more than 4 percent today to about $37. Hynes, who still rates shares of both local hospital chains as 'neutral,' has trimmed her LifePoint (Ticker: LPNT) target to $39 from $44.
