Kindred Healthcare (KND) in Focus: Stock Tumbles 8.4% - Tale of the Tape

By
A A A

Kindred Healthcare Inc. ( KND ) saw a big move last session, as the company's shares fell by over 8% on the day. The move came on pretty good volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This continues the recent downtrend for KND, as the stock is now down 10.7% since July 22. 


The post-acute care services provider has seen a flat track record when it comes to current year estimate revisions over the past few weeks and the consensus for earnings hasn't been in a trend either. This recent price action is discouraging, so make sure to keep a close watch of this firm in the near future, and especially on earnings estimates following the recent slump.


KND currently has a Zacks Rank #4 (Sell). 



Some better-ranked stocks in the broader Medical sector include Accuray Incorporated ( ARAY ), Actelion Ltd. ( ALIOF ) and RTI Surgical Inc. ( RTIX ). All these stocks hold a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).
