Tale of the Tape

DaVita HealthCare Partners Inc. (DVA) was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise nearly 7% on the day. This jump can be attributable to solid volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This broke the recent trend of the company, as the stock is now trading above the volatile price range of $56.54 to $61.55 in the past one-month time frame.

Over the last 30 days, DaVita witnessed no estimate revisions and the Zacks Consensus Estimate remained unchanged in the same period. Yesterday’s price action is encouraging though, so make sure to keep a close watch on this firm in the near future.

DaVita currently has a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold) while its Earnings ESP is 0.00%.

Some better-ranked stocks in the healthcare industry include Addus HomeCare Corporation (ADUS - Snapshot Report) and Heska Corporation (HSKA - Snapshot Report), each with a Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy).  HEALTHSOUTH Corp. (HLS - Snapshot Report) with a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy) is also worth considering.
