+ Watch AFAM
on My Watchlist
The Company and its subsidiaries is a regional provider of home health nursing services.
For 3 years, rev flat and earnings declining. Back to $20 where it was 3 mo. ago before that buyout chatter.

I think that at least in the near term, the White House's involvement in personal healthcare, being as sloppy as it is, will cause this stock and stocks like it to drop. I could end up being wrong but that is my speculation.
Almost Family announced today that customers can request their nurses be outfitted with clown costumes, ninja attire or dressed as evil robots.

I don't see this one going anywhere in the near term. Yes, revenue is slowly creeping up (3% or so since 2010), but EPS is going down fast (down 45% or more since 2010).

Home nursing market is going to explode as the Boomers get infirm but want the comfort of their own (or their family's) home. My nurse practitioner daughter has been involved in this field for several years and is being hounded by headhunters.
Baby Boomers getting older
PSR and price to book both below 1, very nice. Also boasts outstanding ROA, about 50% better than industry average with ROI about 38% above industry average.
Aging baby boomer generation=increased demand
Small cap with good EPS growth rate. Quick Ratio of 2.9.
$34.76 start price. down -55%.
