Health Management Associates, Community Health Systems, Elan Corp., and Acura Pharma Under StockCall's Microscope

LONDON, March 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

The Supreme Court last year upheld President Obama's Affordable Care Act (ACA). The ACA will lead to a major overhaul of the healthcare industry. For-profit hospitals such as Health Management Associates Inc. (NYSE: HMA), and Community Health Systems (NYSE: CYH) are expected to benefit immensely from the ACA in the long-term. Drug delivery companies such as Elan Corporation Plc (NYSE: ELN), and Acura Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: ACUR) are expected to see their costs rise in the near-term due to the healthcare reform. However, the increase in number of insured individuals is expected to benefit the entire healthcare industry in the long-term. On Thursday, the healthcare sector ended mostly lower as the broad market struggled. StockCall has released full comprehensive research on HMA, CYH, ELN, and ACUR and these free technical analyses can be downloaded by signing up at
