Trading View:


The private healthcare company [LHC] that mostly operates in the local market has been underperforming on the JSE Top 40 for 3 years and the company’s share price is down 24% for the year. This is mostly as the result of difficult trading environment in the local market as well as the rights issue in the beginning of the year. At the end of 2016, the company concluded the acquisition of Alliance Medical Group in a R9.0 billion deal. I believe healthcare is a good industry for the future as the global population is growing and more people are getting much older. Life Healthcare pays out a solid dividend of over 5% dividend yield.
