Sorry, missed something...

This is one of my favorites, strong numbers and a great product/service.

Their outpatient surgical centers provide outpatient surgical facilities, contracted X-ray diagnostic services and full service laboratory testing.

“But doubts about Dynacq's accounting for a payment to former health services portal Halcyon, which later became WebMD, led some investors to sell off their shares after Herb Greenberg at TheStreet.com's RealMoney.com unit raised concerns about the company and its acute care hospital in Pasadena, Texas, where it manages three physician practices, in an article Wednesday.'

“Dynacq (DYII) plunged nearly 31 percent in late action. Two class-action lawsuits have been filed against Dynacq. One was filed by Milberg Weiss late Thursday, while the other was filed this morning by Cauley Geller Bowman & Coates. Both suits allege Dynacq and certain of its officer misrepresented the company's results and the health of its balance sheet. The suits were filed on behalf of investors who bought Dynacq shares between Nov. 29, 1999, and Jan. 16.”

“Dynacq International (DYII) leapt more than 7 percent after the Houston provider of surgical healthcare services reported second-quarter earnings of $3.5 million, or 24 cents a share, up from its year-ago profit of $2.4 million, or 17 cents a share. Revenue jumped 54 percent in the latest three months to $15 million from $9.8 million in the same period a year earlier. "Despite the pressures and problems created for management by the orchestrated market activity to depress Dynacq's stock price, management did not waver from its mission to provide high quality health care services and increase shareholder value," said Chiu Chan, the company's chairman and CEO, in a press release. "Our performance indicates that the orchestrated decline in Dynacq's share price had no operational validity and our consistent earnings continue to confirm Dynacq's strategy of same-store growth and selective expansion." Dynacq has been hit with a number of shareholder lawsuits in the past few months. It has vowed to "vigorously defend" itself, and denied all allegations.”
