Almost Family (AFAM) Soars: Stock Up 7.8% - Tale of the Tape

By
A A A

Almost Family Inc. ( AFAM ) was a big mover last session, as its shares rose almost 8% on the day. The move came on solid volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This breaks the recent trend of the company, as the stock is now trading above the volatile price range of $30.81 to $32.43 in the past one-month time frame.

In the last 30-day frame, the company did not witness any estimate revision and the Zacks Consensus Estimate hasn't been in a trend either. Yesterday's price action is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.

Almost Family currently has a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) while its Earnings ESP is 0.00%.

Other stocks which are worth considering in the medical industry include Addus HomeCare Corp. ( ADUS ), China Cord Blood Corp. ( CO ) and HEALTHSOUTH Corp. ( HLS ). While Addus HomeCare sports a Zacks Rank #1, China Cord Blood and HEALTHSOUTH hold a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
