LONDON, March 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

The Supreme Court last year upheld President Obama's Affordable Care Act
(ACA), which means that the healthcare industry will be undergoing a major
transformation. While supporters of ACA say that the reform will lead to an
increase in insured individuals, which will eventually benefit the healthcare
industry, critics say that rising costs due to the ACA will hurt research and
development of new products. Medical instruments & supplies companies have
been one of the biggest critics of the ACA as they are required to pay a tax
on gross sales. For companies such as CareFusion Corporation (NYSE: CFN),
Baxter International Inc. (NYSE: BAX), Nanosphere Inc. (NASDAQ: NSPH), and
Mindray Medical International Ltd. (NYSE: MR), the key will be to reduce costs
to offset the impact of the tax on gross sales. On Friday, medical instruments
and supplies stocks finished mostly higher, tracking gains in the broad
market. StockCall reviewed the Medical Instruments & Supplies industry and
chose CFN, BAX, NSPH, and MR for its technical coverage. These free reports
