Not sure if the decline in health shares is from the global sell out or from the lack of growth with fears of tariff regulations and further discounts. Called this but not sure of what the bottom would look like. Would expect the hospitals to start cost cutting and trimming their bloated management structures. Hospitals are already lean

Netcare results in keeping with expectations and their fears echoed on a tightening market with margin creep is quite realistic and honest. Interesting that they not selling fairy tale optimistic growth on diagnostic and other primary care ventures. Health market enquiry and tariff setting would be the one risk on the near term horizon that we should watch out for.
I would back netcare from all three big hospital groups as the best positioned and most honest to provide stable dividends

There is lots of ai in the radiogy field but that is business process optimisation rather than disruptive innovation. Don't see any techno disruption. Perhaps efficiency and improved patient care. Cancer care and the genetic treatments Will come to the fore especially genetic type diagnosis... Can't evaluate this to price it.

Have been studying life care recently. Be keen to get an understanding of the size of the radiology business they hoping to get in South Africa. Spoke to a few radiologists at golf and they all smiling saying that it is an opportunity for them to exit with a fat check. Business model will be interesting and the revenues. Unlikely to see any benefits in the first few years

Life trading statement in keeping with expectations. Share propped up by continued pension funds and being a top 40. Don't see any significant strategy. Efforts to reduce debt grow revenue and projections slim... Awaiting the presentation to get further info. I won't buy now... Perhaps post presentation and post health market....

Totally agree... This is why hospitals need to diversify, integrate and offer value rather than drive admissions... Even the reporting on activity is propestrous

Mediclinic making some nice gains. Just can't see where their new additional revenue streams going to come from...outpatient is as much profit as primary Healthcare... Limited in comparison to in hospital revenue. However some good steps forward.
Be interesting to see what revenue life made with all the primary care clinics setup since last analyst presentation and importantly what profit margin. Netcare conservative now showing good integration of akeso. Not sure how much efficiencies extracted from integration. For some reasons we always have to really dig for information which should already be shared by the marketing teams.... Wonder how much transparency there is in this market. Be good to get some really forward thinking strategy and or delivery on what was promised before.... Same old same old...

Be cautious IN as there is a global tendency to pressure private health care into non-extortion profits on sick people.

I dont...think retailers battling and dcp not the better of clicks but wouldn't go either them..just mo from chilly uk


Dcp growth rate and new store openings, taking market share from clicks. Consumer strategy linking to discovery vitality and driving primary Healthcare.
Expect at least 6% - 10% growth.
Driving e commerce strategy and door to door delivery of chronic meds and day to day otcs.

Netcare posted their financial update few weeks back similar to last year with acquisitive growth from akeso.
Results for all hospitals will probably be dull with poor future growth expectations... And threat of tariff regulation looming.
Shares may be sidewards.. Dont expect any surprises. Shareholders may punish disappointing strategies and failures with primary care and digital dreams

Approval received for baby milk sale.
Help reduce debt but due to delay their debt has spiraled. Will see nice uptick today and tomorrow and then further sell-off on this share as selling off assets.
However difficult to speculate which way this will go... I do like this company.
