    HCA Holdings stock rises after election

    Hospital companies could see a short-term pop in their stock prices as a result of the election, analysts said. HCA Holdings, for example, jumped 9.4 percent. After Barack Obama’s victory, Goldman Sachs said it upgraded HCA to “buy” from “neutral” and raised its price target to $39 from $31. It also raised price targets for Tenet Healthcare and Community Health Systems, though both are still rated “neutral.”
