Omnicare (OCR -0.6%) slips despite a Q4 earnings beat across the board. Net earnings rose 89% as the nursing-home pharmacy company benefited from stronger margins and lower litigation-related charges, but that also masked a 7.3% revenue decline in its long-term-care segment, its largest contributor. Sales in the smaller specialty-care group climbed 25% to $346M.
