    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.

    More on the Supreme Court healthcare opinion: The court reinforces that individuals can simply refuse to comply with the mandate, and pay the tax. The Supreme Court's live blog is here.

    More on the Supreme Court healthcare opinion: The bottom line: the entire ACA is upheld, with the exception that the federal government's power to terminate states' Medicaid funds is narrowly read. The Supreme Court's live blog is here.

    Citigroup upgrades HCA (HCA) and six other hospital stocks to "buy" ahead of the Supreme Court's decision this month on whether to void some or all of Obamacare. While Citi expects shares to rise in two of three possible scenarios, the call seems a bit premature given that the brokerage forecasts falls of 5%-10% if the healthcare law is totally struck down.
