A long-term experiment to see if riding on Buffett's coattails really gets me anywhere.

Although DaVita has large market share and high pricing power, they have used their semi-monopolistic position in the market to demand high premiums and annual "rate inflators" that keep their rates compounding upwards. Because of this heavy-handed approach, insurance companies have them on their radar as a high cost provider that the recent slew of consolidations will target for savings. And once one of the big insurance companies gets a rate concession from them, there will be chum in the water and the others will be looking for the same.

Also, they had a pretty simple, stable dialysis business model. With their foray into broader healthcare with HCP, they don't have the expertise or infrastructure to run that more complicated business profitably yet. And with pricing pressure on the Medicare side of things, that business will have to adapt quickly to make them a good return on their investment.

Expectation of continued growth in demand for their services as the population ages. Greatest risk is a potential drug breakthrough, that would make their services obsolete.
