The historical trend of the margins do not imply significant positive economies of scale (growing margins). Either that improves (after 8 years of well financed and politically connected history that does not tend to change) or the stock comes CRASHING down when the hopeful finally catch on.
I can't believe you're still hanging out around here. Didn't you sell your position In Athena? Find another hobby like knitting to occupy yourself. No one wants to read your biased bull$%$%, that have proven to be just that. Bull%$%. I have exposed you to be A PAID BASHER. It's not gonna work anymore with the stockholders visiting these message boards for legit info... Now go crawl under your rock G-orgy. Jack$%%
P.s. Hey know-it-all, what do you think of CITI's target price of $100 now? (Post of Dec 6) LOSER!!!!
I certainly am not paid to be on this board, but am short. The PE is in the nose bleed range and I am skeptical that the sales are there to back up the "sexy" story of cloud based medical and billing records. The PE and PEG of ATHN is MUCH higher then its publicly traded competitors. One major headwind for the company is that reimbursement from Medicare is higher for hospital employed MDs then self employed mds/groups. There is currently taking place a herd like migration toward hospital employment, reducing the market base for ATHN.
