    Sunrise Senior Living

    Despite an 11% revenue drop in the third quarter and a net loss of $0.15 a share -- it earned $0.33 a year ago -- the situation seems to have stabilized at Sunrise Senior Living. The assisted-living home operator also reported an increase in occupancy rates and operating profits, even if only marginally. Occupancy at its senior-living communities rose modestly to just under 88%, while revenue per occupied unit was up 5% from the year ago period.

    Valued at less than a quarter of its revenues, Sunrise is cheaper than rivals such as Brookdale Senior Living, though perhaps not offering as much of a discount as Five Star Quality Care (NYSE: FVE ) , which goes off at just a tenth of its sales.

    CAPS member warrenscohn says the demographics of an aging American population make the long-term outlook quite bright for Sunrise: "I too agree that given the demographics of the largest generation ever (baby boomers) due to begin retiring, and moving into assisted facilities in greater numbers (at least once the economy gets better) this company is well positioned to do VERY well. Intangible assets, book value, technical trends, etc, make this a very attractive long term stock buy."

      I've monitored the success and failure of Motley Fool for years and I dare say anyone that pays any attention to them is a fool of the first order. Their track record of success is down right terrible. You and the others here need to know their first order of business is to pad their own pocketbook and they could care less about what happens to the small type investor who pays dearly for their services. Before you act on their advice, I think you had better think twice - - - no, make that three times or better yet, make it four times.

      Cheers and good investing,
