Post Holiday Stock Drop

July 6, 2009

Monday, July 6, 2009
Seniors housing stocks dropped in June, but our theoretical portfolio of the six publicly traded companies surged by 80.2% in the second quarter.  Post-holiday trading was not nearly as kind, as Sunrise Senior Living dropped by 13.5% today, Capital Senior Living by 8.2% and Brookdale Senior Living by 7.0%.  Only Five Star Quality Care eked out a tiny gain today.

In the skilled nursing sector, there was much more of a mixed bag today, with half the stocks up and half down.  Sun Healthcare Group had the largest gain at 4.0%, and Advocat the largest drop at 6.9%.  Not much of a rhyme nor reason in a day that saw the market drop early in the day only to rebound later on.  This may last a while.
