+ Watch ENSG
on My Watchlist
Like where this company is going...smart management and performing. Thought about the sell recommend in 2010, but decided to hold long term. This one's a keeper, for now.
Skilled Nursing Care Facilities will be a huge growth sector over the next twenty years, along with funeral services, as the Baby Boomer Population reach the inevitable outcomes of being born.
This is a dividend stock in the healthcare business- that says stable growth. Recent events (buying new rehab and reirement facilities) increased debt and drove down LFQ numbers, but the bounce will be nice when the books clear up a little.
Sure glad I sold mine to buy ATVI......!
Stock Advisor pick, small cap with stable dividend, growth field, etc., etc.
This health care provider has a very good valuation right now; (P/E=10, P/S=0.67, P/B=1.9). The dividend yield is about 1.1% and the payout ration is 9%. It is interesting to note that the insiders own about 39% of the shares. Additionally it has a Return on Equity of 18% which is good. It is on a moderate growth trajectory with PEG Ratio of 0.7. The only negative aspect is that it has some debt which gives it a current ration of 1.7. Overall I see no reason as to why this company would under perform.
An aging population with nowhere to go
Before long all of us baby boomers who can afford it, will be living in one of their facilities. May as well let the next 10 to 15 years gain on the stock pay for our stay.
I'm 10 years old, but you never know, I might make MILLIONS off of this stock before I have to go into one of their homes!
Another fantastic company poised to feed off of old people's finances that would otherwise go to their children's inheritances.
This met a high level screen to indicate a buy and strong outperform against its peers (other tickers in its industry). My 1st version of this spreadsheet devles deep into the company's balnace sheet and recent income statements, combined with other relevant price data for the company including insider/institutional holdings, short interest, debt levels, etc. Testing capabilities of this 1st version of my automated, valuation spreadhseet matched with my personal criteria and see how it holds up.
This account tracks the less exciting stocks from my watch list - companies that are easy to understand with clean balance sheets and good track records in relatively straight-forward industries.
The company looks undervalued by 35% or so from its current price of 15.24.
Market cap of 300M divided by 7,600 beds (paying customers), in a growing market long term = solid value. Plus relatively low debt, high insider ownership, pays a dividend = good buy and hold.
Hopping into the same boat as tenmiles, vanamonde, Jakila.Given history, our country should at some point get older.This boomer play isn't a stellar entry, but if the above think there's decent gains to be had from the $13s, maybe $14.50 isn't too horrid. Should prove decent gains with a long-term hold.
I don't know much about healthcare, but Ensign has a strong balance sheet, impressive cash flows, and good long-term growth prospects. It also looks relatively cheap right now with net tangible assets around $7.75 per share and earnings over the past four quarters around $1.40 per share. It pays a small dividend and in spite of that, you can glance back at their financials and see their stockholders' equity account slowly growing. You've got to like that, right?
Small cap healthcare gem. This company is fundamentally underpriced with lots of room to run on the growth end.
With an aging population, there will be likely continuing demand. Low debt, high insider ownership, steadily increasing revenues all suggest a rosy future. Not to mention the increasing CAPS score.
