Veteran Wells Fargo analyst Gary Lieberman says the guidance raise by HCA Holdings Wednesday looks to be on the conservative side given that the benefits of health care reform aren't going to end anytime soon. He has reiterated his 'outperform' rating on shares of HCA, which jumped 10 percent (Ticker: HCA) to a record high. On the flip side, Paula Torch at Avondale tells Investor's Business Daily that HCA is proving (again) to be best in class.
Editor's note: This is the last post from the Nashville Health Care Council's 2014 Leadership Health Care Delegation to Washington. Click here for other entries from this year and past visits.
Attendees of Leadership Health Care’s 2014 Delegation to Washington were treated to a keynote speech by John Harris, editor in chief of Politico. Co-founded in 2007 by Harris, Politico has developed a reputation as the go-to source for nonpartisan, in-depth coverage of D.C. politics. Harris spent two decades covering politics at The Washington Post and is the author of “The Survivor: Bill Clinton in the White House,” which was a New York Times bestseller.
The delegation of 100 LHC members heard spirited remarks from Harris on the current political and media climate in Washington. In this video, he took a few moments to further discuss health care’s role in recent and upcoming elections, including an apparent upswing in Republican chances of regaining control of the Senate.
