Identifying Key Factors Responsible For The 25% Jump In DaVita's Stock This Month

DaVita Inc. is a medical services company providing kidney dialysis services to patients in the United States as well as internationally.
The company’s stock price rallied 25% in the last month primarily on account of strong Q3 results. The company’s EPS surpassed expectations by almost 24% despite its net income figure largely being in line with expectations thanks to a larger-than-expected buy back of shares. Another factor that helped investor confidence is the fact that the company increased its guidance for FY 2020 upwards from the band of $5.00 – $5.50 to $5.25 – $5.75
