The Senbet Fund Checks HealthSpring's Pulse

The latest company presented to the Senbet Fund's members was HealthSpring ( HS), a managed care organization that provides healthcare services to qualifying Medicare subscribers in five states. Arkady Gelman, the fund's healthcare analyst presented HealthSpring as a buy.

But the buy recommendation wasn't based on a gut feeling. Much of it was based on a very impressive discounted cash flow analysis that puts HealthSpring's projected share price well above its recent sub-$20 trading range .

Gelman's argument focused on the idea that HealthSpring's potential for growth and small market cap would provide a nice bit of diversification for the fund's healthcare positions.
