Yahoo Finance is tracking healthcare stocks after House Republican leaders outlined their plan to repeal and replace Obamacare. House Speaker Paul Ryan, who presented some details of the plan with two House committee chairmen, told reporters that the GOP will introduce the new legislation when Congress returns from its President’s Day break. During his weekly news conference, Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin said, “It has become increasingly clear that this law is collapsing.” Earlier this week, insurance giant Humana (HUM) announced that it’s pulling out of all Affordable Care Act markets by the end of the year.
These reports, excerpted and edited by Barron’s, were issued recently by investment and research firms. Wal-Mart Stores • WMT-NYSE Outperform • Price $68.66 on Feb. 14 by R.W. Baird With fourth-quarter results due out before the market opens on Tuesday, Feb. 21, we are trimming our U.S. comparable-store sales growth from 1.2% to 0.8% (the plan is 1% to 1.5%), given indications of the challenging holiday across the retail sector. With relative valuation (versus the Standard & Poor’s 500 and Staples) back below historical trend, and Wal-Mart’s defensive positioning intact in a choppy consumer/retail backdrop, we are sticking with our Outperform rating and $80 price target.
