Hurricane Harvey's Impact on Healthcare
Seeking Alpha Author Ranjit Thomas explains to Cheddar why the healthcare industry is a hot market to invest in. He is specifically looking at HCA Healthcare, the largest publicly traded hospital operator in the U.S. He explains how the company took a $140 million hit after Hurricanes Harvey and Irma but says HCA has the best financial metrics in the industry and that its stock price should rise as it continues to grow with an aging population.
