    HCA Holdings (HCA -0.3%) is set to finish a lackluster session slightly in the red after missing on its Q4 results earlier today. Net earnings plunged as the for-profit hospital operator booked year-earlier gains, which masked growth in patient admissions and revenue. For the year, the company projected per-share earnings of $3 to $3.30, below Street estimates of $3.46.

    JPMorgan initiates coverage of a few hospitals with an "overall constructive outlook." The firm says that despite volatility amid the fiscal-cliff debate and the potential for delays in coverage expansion under the Affordable Care Act, multiyear benefits from that coverage expansion outweigh the uncertainty. The firm also sees "meaningful economic improvement" for the sector coming in 2014-2016. It calls LifePoint (LPNT +4.4%), Universal Health (UHS +3.4%) and HCA (HCA +1.7%) its favorite picks, while aso starting Tenet (THC +4%) and Community Health (CYH +3.5%) at Overweight.

HCA Holdings (HCA +9.5%), Tenet Healthcare (THC +10%), Health Management Associates (HMA +8.2%) and Community Health Systems (CYH +7%).
