12:38: Robbins likes Tenet Healthcare Corporation (NYSE:THC), Tenet Healthcare Corporation (NYSE:HMNA), HCA Holdings Inc (NYSE:HCA) and LifePoint Hospitals, Inc. (NASDAQ:LPNT) which are four for-profit hospitals. These are trading at 7x earnings because the market hates them now.

12:39: These companies are over capitalized, have good cash flow, and EBITDA has grown 9% CAGR since 2004.

12:40: The affordable health care act in 30 seconds: lower income people will be able to get medicaid. Hospitals will also get more money from the Government.

12:41: Everyone must buy health insurance. The provisions will encourage people to get insurance and people will be encouraged to go to the hospital.

12:43: 50% of the hospital beds are empty at for-profits. Non for-profits are rightly called that name.

12:44: Medicare rates will still go up increasing hospital profits.

12:45: These companies have a tremendous amount of leverage. Their excess cash would allow them to rebuy every single share.

12:46:  The market is scared of what the supreme court will do. But no matter what it should not effect the hospitals. Infact, it should increase 10% in EBITDA.

12:47: ITC Holdings Corp. (NYSE:ITC) is another stock he likes. They are energy company and are regulated by states.

12:48: Utilities are allowed 11.1% return on equity, ITC is allowed 13.2% ROE, and they have more equity.

12:49: ITC was not interested when Robbins called them up in talking. He thinks it is a great franchise, the bad case is that the regulators wont allow them to be profitable.

12:50: Regulators have noticed their high margins.

12:51: FERC is starting to take action on the company, but he is not concerned.
