Skilled Healthcare (SKH) in Focus: Stock Soars 19.8% - Tale of the Tape

Skilled Healthcare Group, Inc. ( SKH ) was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise nearly 20% on the day. The move came on solid volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This continues the recent uptrend for the company, as the stock has gained nearly 20% in the past one-month time frame.

This provider of long-term health care facilities has seen one negative estimate revision in the last 30 days. The Zacks Consensus Estimate has, however, remained unchanged over the same time frame. Yesterday's rally is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.

Skilled Healthcare currently has a Zacks Rank #4 (Sell) while its Earnings ESP is 0.00%.

Some better-ranked Home Health Care stocks worth considering are Almost Family Inc. ( AFAM ), Amedisys Inc. ( AMED ) and Gentiva Health Services Inc. ( GTIV ). All the three stocks sport a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).
