Tenet Healthcare (THC -3.4%) slips on an in-line Q1 report, as net earnings came in sub-par on an overall rise in operating costs. Profit for the quarter fell to $58M from $73M in the prior year period, as higher expenses offset a rise in emergency department visits at the company's hospitals, as well as an increase in surgeries.
