    HCA Holdings (HCA -0.1%) says a second story about the company may soon be published by the New York Times, covering several topics that did not appear in the first story. Last week the company disclosed the newspaper had published an article questioning its cardiology practices in Florida, and it had been contacted by the U.S. Attorney's office over the matter. Among the new topics are questions about reimbursement guidelines and the process the company uses to determine the status of emergency care.

    HCA Holdings (HCA +5%) snaps back from yesterdays pummeling on a negative New York Times article regarding its practices in Florida, as a number of firms come to its defense. Jefferies thinks concerns over the issue will subside, and the stock will eventually move higher on its strong fundamentals and solid income potential. Baird agrees, saying that sellers have overreacted and the company's balance sheet remains strong.

    Health care stocks had a mixed run after last week's monumental Supreme Court decision. Despite the run-up in select names, CRT Capital's Sheryl Skolnick thinks any upside to the decision is going to be short lived. Any benefits coming from less bad debt are likely to be offset by slower reimbursement growth and fiscal belt-tightening. Besides, the law's major provisions won't kick in until 2014, and Republicans have vowed to repeal the law the first chance they get.
