    • "The combination will put Brookdale's (BKD +4.3%) market share in the private pay residential/senior housing market at ~10% and will offer numerous strategic and financial benefits," says analyst Darren Lehrich, maintaining his Buy rating on BKD and boosting the price target $3 to $38. "We conclude that the deal puts an exclamation point on the value of BKD's infrastructure and leadership position in the senior living space, and it should accelerate the value of ESC's portfolio over the mid/long-term ... Synergies should have upside risks."

    Brookdale Senior Living (BKD +6.4%) shares are riding high after Bloomberg says the company could be the next takeover target in the senior living space. BKD has the group's lowest valuation relative to cash flow, and operating margin is projected to reach a record high next quarter, Bloomberg calculates. Its stock price "doesn’t really reflect the improving fundamentals," an analyst says.
