    I don't think this is a good stock to short.
    But, if you want to??

    • I wouldn't advise shorting the stock here, I would suggest that the tightness in tax income indicates the growth period is over. The technicals will tell you if it's time to short. Might be a value stock, but I wouldn't count on it. REITs look alot better for that and they're building more beds too. Really, REITs are like a bond in that they pay big, but they are an inflation hedge too. If deflation strikes, both categories will suffer.

    • Great post Javelin2625. Every indication I have seen is that this company is still in the building mode--adding more beds, expanding into other types of services, etc.

      I think it will get back to its levels of a few years ago again this year.
