$HCA reported that in 2Q16 it recognized a $44MM tax benefit or $0.11 per diluted share related to the early adoption of the new accounting standard, which reduced the provision for income taxes. The purchases of three hospitals in the Dallas, Fort Worth, and Texas markets are expected to strengthen $HCA's market growth in the future.
No better outlook on $MSFT. Even if the results beat a bit, the stock may move 4 to 6% higher, but won't go above $60.
