Adcare Health Systems - Barchart's Chart Of The Day

|Includes: Regional Health Properties, Inc. (RHE)

The Chart of the Day belongs to Adcare Health Systems (ADK). I found the stock by sorting the New High list for new high frequency in the last month then used Flipchart feature to review the charts. Since the Trend Spotter signaled a buy on 6/9 the stock gained 19.57%.

ADK is a recognized innovator in senior living and health care facility management. AdCare owns and manages long-term care facilities and retirement communities, and since the company's inception in 1988, its mission has been to provide the highest quality of healthcare services to the elderly, including a broad range of skilled nursing and sub-acute care services.
