Almost Family, Inc. (AFAM)

Almost Family, Inc. (AFAM)

Almost Family, Inc. and its subsidiaries provide home health nursing services. It operates through two segments Visiting Nurse and Personal Care. The Visiting Nurse segment provides medical services in patients' homes. The Personal Care segment provides personal care services in patients' homes. The company has service locations in Kentucky, Florida, Maryland, Ohio, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Alabama, and Indiana. Almost Family was formerly known as Caretenders HealthCorp and changed its name to Almost Family, Inc. in 2000. The company was incorporated in 1985 and is based in Louisville, Kentucky.

The few things I like about this one is the low P/E, and honestly, it's has the lowest out of all it's direct competitors. Through on top of that it has a Qtrly Rev Growth (yoy) of 13.80% and still going!

The only thing that we can not figure out is that. Someone is behind all this, because for all the numbers and key stats. I mean it's a great story, good solid numbers, but is just stuck. We just can not understand why this one has not taken off yet. Though, we feel that it could somewhere down the road. AFAM might be one to watch!
