Analyst action: HCA, AAC, Pinnacle

Shares of HCA Holdings are on the list of 10 catalyst-driven picks for the second quarter at BofA Merrill Lynch. The firm's analysts say a favorable Supreme Court ruling in King vs. Burwell — which is expected by late June — will give the country's largest private hospital operator "plenty of upside possibility with little downside." HCA shares (Ticker: HCA) are up slightly so far this year.

Raymond James analysts have added AAC Holdings to their list of must-own health care stocks for the coming months. AAC (Ticker: AAC), which went public late last year, is down just a bit so far in 2015.

Our playbook for 2015 encompasses four key themes to invest behind: above-average growth (relative to peer groups), reform (which has been strong on the exchange front and could see a bump in Medicaid enrollment as more states expand Medicaid), capital deployment optionality, and free cash flow generation (the last two provide downside support and can act as incremental growth drivers).

And lastly for now, Sandler O'Neil analyst Stephen Scouten has lowered his rating on shares of Pinnacle Financial Partners (Ticker: PNFP) to 'hold' from 'buy' after they hit his $44 target. However, he has tweaked that target to $47.
