Net income, first quarter, 2008: $133M

Net income, annual for 2007: $119M

11% annual growth rate predicted over 5-year term.

I don't like [HMA] debt burden, but in the world of CAPS, I'll take a chance and let it ride because hospitals generally stay in business over the long run. Will also be interesting to see how Obamacare impacts company margins.

They focus on the burbs, which is where a lot of the baby boomers are, and they're putting up crushing numbers this year:

Net income, first quarter, 2008: $133M

Net income, annual for 2007: $119M

They're finally figuring out how to make money again.

ya'll are not looking at the big picture.

even though i am not for hillary, universal health care of some form will help not hurt for profit hospitals. this will give the hospital some form of return for services, when now they are just writing it off.

HMA is a turn around story waiting to happen.

management is working to get cost under control and retire the debt. the debt was given to shareholders to hold off a take over.

the whole sector is under attack, and undervalued. every one is scaried to buy.

"buy from the scaried, sell to the greedy"

will be long HMA by 10/12/07
