Over the last month, Amedisys has steadily traded above the Zacks categorized Medical-Outpnt/Hm Care industry. Market is particularly positive on the company’s consistent and stellar Home Health division’s performance with solid organic growth in Medicare and non-Medicare revenues. We are also upbeat about the company’s initiative for strategically fit merger and acquisition activities, the most recent deal being East Tennessee Personal Care Service. The company’s strong cash position further bolsters our confidence in the stock. However, CMS’ recently proposed Home Health rule in 2017 proved grossly unfavorable for Amedisys indicating gloomy scenario ahead. Also, Escalation in operating expenses and margin contractions continue to raise concern.
