Needham cuts HealthStream rating

Needham Securities analyst Scott Berg is suggesting investors take a breath on HealthStream after the company's second-quarter earnings report and conference call. He has downgraded the stock (Ticker: HSTM) to 'hold' from 'buy' and wants to see a clearer growth narrative for parts of the business.

While the company's 2Q call detailed a core business that remains strong, potential early ICD-10 customer loss, the continued lack of visibility of declining ICD-10 related revenues, and an underperforming Patient Experience segment give us less confidence that the company can drive meaningful upside to our current growth estimates.

State to hand out $10M for workforce education

Gov. Bill Haslam on Tuesday said the Tennessee Higher Education Commission is now taking applications from various groups looking to set up new workforce development programs in specific communities around the state. The Labor Education Alignment Program will hand out grants of up to $1 million each to ECD agencies, chambers of commerce, community colleges, school districts and/or companies that can show they are suffering from a shortage of skilled workers.

“Our goal with the Drive to 55 is to encourage more Tennesseans to obtain a certificate or degree beyond high school, so that they can ultimately get better jobs and create better lives,” Haslam said. “The LEAP competition will create partnerships between employers and higher education institutions that will be an important step in making this goal a reality.”
