    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.
