The Ensign Group is exposed to headwinds like rising expenses, heavy debt burden and regulatory uncertainty created by the surprise victory of Donald Trump. Stringent regulations faced by the non-U.S operations of the company also raise concerns. Well reflective of these headwinds, the shares of Ensign Group has lost 15% year to date, much wider than the 3.5% loss incurred by the  Zacks categorized Nursing Homes industry. Even the Zacks Consensus Earnings estimate has remained flat for 2017 and revised downward for 2018, over past sixty days. However, the company operates in the booming post-acute care industry that holds untapped opportunities. In addition, the company’s consistently rising revenues on the back of robust inorganic growth is impressive. Its strong underwriting results have been mainly backed by its solid fundamentals.
