BKD is probably one of the most overvalued stocks out there... TIME TO RING THE REGISTER AND WALK AWAY WITH THE PROFITS.
Got in at $4 share, I was hoping for $0.50 gain on my $200K investment and got 4 times that... and for no apparent reason.
This is why I'm pulling the plug right now:
BKD's debt to total capital ratio, at 72.66% will bring it to it's knees. The company's Quick ratio has a value of 0.43 which shows that there are not enough liquid assets to satisfy current liabilities in the event that operating earnings are unable to.
BKD does a consistently below average job compared to the other companies in the Healthcare Facilities industry, with a Return on Assets, Revenues Per Employee, and Return on Equity of (8.06%), $86,849.28, and (31.36%) respectively, the company is by all measures doing an ineffective job relative to it's industry peers.
BKD is losing money on an operating basis and has a poor profitability characteristics in comparison to its Healthcare Facilities industry peers. It does a worse job converting revenues to profits on an operating and net margin basis.
By all means this is a strong sell. Get out James.
Those elementary school ratios mean nothing, this company is restructuring.board of directors are privy to the books, they are buying. see form 4's.. would not be surprised to see a debt equity swap and the stock higher.
