Zacks Equity Research

AdCare Health Systems Inc. (ADK) saw a big move last session, as the company’s shares fell by nearly 6% on the day. The move came on pretty good volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session.  This continues the recent downtrend for ADK, as the stock is now down 11.8% in the past one-month time frame.

This slump shouldn’t be too much of a surprise to investors, as AdCare Health Systems has seen 1 negative revision in the past few weeks and its current year loss consensus has widened over the last 30 days. This suggests there may be more trouble down the road.
