Some food for thought??

My "contrarian" juices are flowing - big time!
Came across a local stock I recognized (Milwaukee)
in the "Biggest Losers" column awhile back and
have been poking around since and getting more
interested as I learn more.

The whole "assisted living" sector [ALF, HCR, RSCR,
SNRZ, ACR, BLCI, CTEN, ALI, CSU] have generally
"tanked" to less than 1/2 of their 52 week highs.
Several of these to 1/4 & even less. The one I have culled out for interest is currently at 1/10, and
less than 40% of book [ALI].

As a entrepeneur I think I can relate to what has
happened - but maybe I'm just trying to see something
that is not there? Seems these companies have been
growing very rapidly and all hit some kind of "growth
wall" together. Also think I can understand this
as the initial growth was not the number of new
available patients - but rather the number of people
ready to avail themselves to this new service.
BUT demographics seem super, to me, in long run.

Also have to think that we are likely to have a
much larger percent of the population suffering from
mild forms of "dementia" with medical advances being
what they are.

ANYWAY.... I thought this might be interesting
to some of you.

Hope so,


George
