    More cash rolls in

    Chemed posted results. Nicely profitable. More cash rolls in.
    Cash flow from operations was $51.2 million for this 3rd quarter. I think we will see CHE up over $78/sh during this quarter. Nice!

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • How's the p/e look to you? It's at around 18. do you see this to go higher in the short term or long term?
      I've held this stock for a long time. a small stake, but made good profits. too lazy to move.

    • Thank goodness for the cash flow metric since all others failed to thrive. However, having just read the conf call transcript, it illustrates once again just how poorly the top brass in Cinci can articulate the real story. No time to highlight the strong cash flow? Thankfully new acquisitions seem to be off the table...the Birmingham and Phoenix deals both have been busts ( I heard they just gave back Phx to the prior owners).
      The call Q&A was incredibly long-winded and repetitive analysis of how to admit patients...had a significant "she does protest too much" quality about it. This very poor off-the-cuff IR style has been a long-term issue with the two key guys whose train of thought provides some disturbing insights into the mental capacity of management. Who is responsible for holding a CEO accountable? ..where is the board of directors?

      Sentiment: Hold
