Healthcare Trust of America latest news:
Tenet Healthcare, Community Health Systems plunge after HCA Holdings issues revenue, earnings warning
Tenet Healthcare Corporation shares dropped 8.7% in afternoon trade Monday and Community Health Systems shares dropped 7.5% after rival hospital operator HCA Holdings Inc. warned of a first-quarter revenue and earnings miss. Tenet shares were valued at $15.95 and Community Health Systems shares were valued at $8.42 as of Monday afternoon. HCA Holdings stock dropped 2.7% in afternoon trade after warning Monday morning that it expected earnings to come in at $1.74 per share, below the FactSet consensus of $1.79. The company also said it expects revenue to come in at $10.6 billion, below the FactSet consensus of $10.7 billion. HCA Holdings attributed the results to changes in payer mix, meaning more patients have government insurance such as Medicare, which pays less than employer-sponsored plans. Investors appear to be concerned that those factors will have industry-wide effects. Hospital operator LifePoint Health Inc. shares fell just 1.3% on Monday afternoon, and Universal Health Services shares slumped just 0.2%, compared with a 0.6% rise in the S&P 500 . Tenet shares have dropped 16.1% over the last three months, and Community Health Systems shares have risen 18.1%, compared with a 3.3% rise in the S&P 500 .

Aetna exit from Iowa's 2018 Obamacare exchanges leaves just one insurer
Aetna Inc. said Thursday that it will not be selling Affordable Care Act plans in Iowa in 2018. The development, which was first reported by Modern Healthcare, a health care publication, was prompted by "financial risk and an uncertain outlook for the marketplace," Aetna said. The health insurer, which sold ACA plans in 2017 in four states, Delaware, Iowa, Nebraska and Virginia, said it is still evaluating its participation in the three remaining states. Aetna's decision follows an exit from the ACA exchanges by Wellmark Blue Cross and Blue Shield, Iowa's largest insurer, which was announced earlier this week. The third insurer that currently has offerings on the Iowa exchanges is non-profit Medica. Health insurers have until June 21 to submit their bids for 2018, and have been contending with tremendous uncertainty around the future of the ACA, also called Obamacare. Though Republicans pulled their plan to repeal the ACA from a House of Representatives vote late last month, they've said they plan to try again, and it's unclear how the law would fare under a hostile administration. Aetna shares have risen 3.0% over the last three months, compared with a 3.7% rise in the S&P 500 . Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

Spicer says there's a difference between WikiLeaks hacks of Podesta, CIA
White House spokesman Sean Spicer on Wednesday said there was a "massive, massive" difference between WikiLeaks' release of Central Intelligence Agency hacking methods and that site's release of former Clinton campaign manager John Podesta's Gmail account. President Trump, during the campaign, had declared, "I love WikiLeaks." "The interest and outrage that occurred last year by a lot of Democrats when it came to leaks, it's interesting that we're hearing not as much outrage now when it comes to national security," Spicer said. On the Republican healthcare bill, Spicer said the amount of affordable healthcare services, not the number of people who obtain health insurance coverage, is the more important metric.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.

Cigna terminates Anthem merger deal, seeks nearly $15 billion in restitution
Cigna Corp. disclosed in filing Tuesday that it has terminated the merger deal with Anthem Inc. , six days after a court ruling to enjoin the proposed merger, and about 19 months after the $48 billion merger was announced. Cigna said has filed suit against Anthem, seeking a $1.85 billion reverse termination fee and more than $13 billion in additional damages, which includes the amount of premium Cigna shareholders did not realize. Cigna said it decided to terminate the deal after a district court found that the merger would decrease competition and choices for consumers. Cigna's decision marked the second big healthcare merger that was terminated Tuesday, after Aetna Inc. and Humana Inc. agreed to end their $34 billion merger, also after 19 months. Cigna said Tuesday that it while it was "disappointed" in the merger's failure, it was moving ahead by expanding its stock repurchase program to a total of $3.7 billion. The company said its 2017 outlook for adjusted earnings growth will get a boost from the "significant" capital available for deployment. Cigna's stock was up 0.4% in afternoon trade, while Anthem shares slipped 0.2%. Over the past 12 months, Cigna's stock has gained 12%, Anthem shares have rallied 34% and the S&P 500 has gained 25%.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.
