Does HCA pay divy year or qtr, this co looks like a buy here to me.
The last time HCA paid a dividend was in February of this year. The dividend was $2.00. Other than a dividend the PE is very low and could represent an excellent entry point.
As long as they are borrowing the money to pay a dividend why not ake it $25 instead of $2.50?
What I am wondering is whether the effect would be more positive if they paid down debt!
