What's Really Wrong with the U.S. Health Care Industry / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By: Vijay_Boyapati

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn May 3, 2010, I gave a talk to a class of students studying public health policy at the University of Washington. I began the talk by asking the students how many of them believed that the current healthcare system in America was flawed; everyone in the class raised their hand. I then asked how many of them believed that the recently passed healthcare legislation, supported by President Obama, was a step in the right direction in reforming America's healthcare system. Once again, everyone raised their hand.

An Update On Philip Morris: Earnings, Buybacks, Dividends / Companies / Healthcare Sector

By: Kevin_Duffey

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePM Earnings - Philip Morris International, Inc. (PM) reported earnings and scored a “miss” according to most analysts.  I typically could care less about whether it was a “beat” or “miss” so that’s all I’m going to say about that.  The bottom line is that PM has reiterated that it is on track to achieve earnings growth of at least 10% and bring in EPS of $3.75 to $3.85 for 2010.  Based on 2010 EPS of $3.75, a $50 stock price means a price-to-earnings ratio of 13.3.

ObamaCare: Soon to be the Worst Bill Passed in U.S. History (Part 1) / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By: Mike_Stathis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith Obama’s healthcare bill ready to sign, democrats are celebrating. Meanwhile, (supposedly) enraged republicans insist payback will come in November. This is part of the typical back-and-forth theatrics staged to galvanize voter support for each party. Please do not allow yourself to be fooled by these games. As the facts show, both parties are essentially the same when it comes to issues that matter most to working-class Americans; free trade and healthcare, as first detailed in America’s Financial Apocalypse.

How Wall St Destroyed Private Medicine / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAt my annual check-up, my doctor handed me a sheet explaining the reasons for office fee increases for Medicare Patients. It is worth reporting at length.

Medicare fixes the prices for Medicare patients’ health care. All office charges for Medicare, including office visit charges, have been set by the Federal government since 1984. In real terms (adjusted for inflation), these fixed prices are less today than they were three decades ago.

Healthcare Under Capitalism / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By: Colin_Leys

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLeo Panitch and Colin Leys have just brought out the 2010 annual volume of the Socialist Register, Morbid Symptoms: Health Under Capitalism, published by Merlin Press in London, Monthly Review Press in the U.S. and Fernwood Books in Canada. The book provides a path-breaking assessment of health under capitalism, providing a systematic account of the antagonistic relationship between capitalism and human bodies, of how modern healthcare has been deeply penetrated by neoliberal capitalism, and the ways in which healthcare workers, activists and socialists are struggling and pursuing alternative paths of solidarity in human health.

U.S. Healthcare Legislation Investment Impact / Companies / Healthcare Sector

By: Richard_Shaw

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast night the U.S. House of Representatives brought us one large step closer to a national healthcare system. Investors should be cognizant of the financial effects that would follow.

In the extreme short-run, it would be reasonable to assume that the U.S. stock market would react negatively, although short-term price movements are often chaotic. In the intermediate-term, if the legislation goes forward, the healthcare sector should perform at a lower level than in periods prior to national healthcare.

Healthcare Company Profits Sensitivity to Obamacare / Companies / Healthcare Sector

By: Richard_Shaw

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNational healthcare wherever is implemented squeezes prices and profits of the private businesses involved in the system.

Obamacare in the U.S. will be no different.  For investors in healthcare companies, it is a good idea to begin to think through which companies will be most severely negatively impacted or least impacted, to potentially make  deletions or substitutions.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe’ve all been waiting on pins and needles to see what kind of health care reform comes out of Washington. Aside from the fact that we’re all patients of one kind or another, health care is a huge part of the economy.

Health Care Solution Analysis / Politics / Healthcare Sector

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJonathan K. Solan writes: America’s politicians are proposing “Cures“ for health care at a rapid pace.  Each “Cure” is immediately challenged by people and organizations from both ends of the political spectrum.  One side says the cure is too expensive, the other side says the cure does not go far enough.  All sides say we need more insurance.

Most Americans listen to the arguments and they intuitively know what they don’t like in the proposals, but they hear little in the way of proposals that they intuitively do like.  They don’t like hearing higher taxes, forced enrollment in insurance, Government options, and fines for not having insurance.  Americans know that the American way is freedom, not government force.  Why do the politicians repeatedly turn to the use of force to fix problems?

HITECH, Your Medical History in the Machine / Companies / Healthcare Sector

By: Doug_Horning

By Doug Hornig, Senior Editor, Casey’s Extraordinary Technology

In the future, a visit to your family physician, or any specialist, will begin with a quick scan of the computer screen, where a few keystrokes will tell the doctor everything he or she needs to know about you – all the way from how much you weighed at birth, to X-rays of that bone you broke when you flipped your motorcycle thirty years ago, to how much you spent on blood work last year, right up to the hypertension pills you took after dinner yesterday (and maybe even what you ate, although hopefully not).
