Healthcare Giant On The Dip

Universal Health Services (UHS), which operates clinical care and mental wellness hospitals, is a stock we have had success with in the past, booking 20-35% gains over the years. The stock traded above $150 before disappointing first-quarter earnings but is  still on pace to earn $11 a share this year.

At just over 11X this estimate, I think UHS represents solid value in an environment where uncertainty about the economy is on the rise. I’ll say more in Tuesday’s regular Value Authority issue, but for now, let’s close the week adding the stock on weakness.

Buy UHS under $125 as I target $140.

If you are Inner Circle Subscriber following the Model Portfolio, take a 5% position in UHS in the Value Sector.
