We suspect shares may react favorably given the strong operating income beat and raised 2017 operating income guidance, although we note that the implied 4Q guide is disappointing versus our previous estimates and consensus. Key positive: Delivering significant upside to operating income and raising 2017 operating income guidance will be viewed favorably. In the past, investors have questioned when HSTM would begin to deliver improved profitability. Key negative: Normalized growth in Workforce Solutions. The company’s largest division experienced a slowdown in growth.””
