Strength Seen in Almost Family (AFAM): Stock Up 6.0% - Tale of the Tape

Almost Family Inc. ( AFAM ) was a big mover last session with its shares rising just over 6% 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 past one month's volatile price range of $22.91 to $24.10.

This provider of home health services has seen no estimate revision in the last 30 days. The Zacks Consensus Estimate hasn't been in trend either. Yesterday's rally 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 #3 (Hold) while its Earnings ESP is 0.00%.

Investors interested in the Home Health Care industry may consider stocks like Gentiva Health Services Inc. ( GTIV ), Amedisys Inc. ( AMED ) and HEALTHSOUTH Corp. ( HLS ). All the three stocks sport a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).
