By
A A A

Community Health Systems, Inc. ( CYH ) was a big mover last session with its shares rising nearly 9% on the day. The move came on solid volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This breaks the recent trend of the company as the stock is now trading above the past one month's volatile price range of $42.32 to $46.10.  

This provider of general and hospital healthcare services has seen 2 negative estimate revisions in the last 7 days. However, the Zacks Consensus Estimate has remained unchanged. Yesterday's rally is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.

Community Health Systems currently has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) while its Earnings ESP is positive.

However, investors interested in the Med-Hospital industry may consider stocks like Acadia Healthcare Company, Inc. ( ACHC ), Tenet Healthcare Corp. ( THC ) and Universal Health Services Inc. ( UHS ). While Acadia Healthcare sports a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy), Tenet Healthcare and Universal Health Services bear a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
