Anyhow, market is see-sawing (?sp?) back and forth but seems to want to move ahead. We had good numbers from Home Depot...2 cents ahead of expectations...and the housing starts hit a multi-year record (although housing construction permits were not quite as strong.)
Dynacq International (DYII) showed up this morning in the greatest percentage gainers. According to CNN.Money, one of my favorite starting points, Dynacq "...owns and operates an integrated healthcare delivery system that includes outpatient surgical center, hospital, physician management services and home infusion therapy."
DYII is having a nice day today trading currently at $24.50 up $1.25 or 5.38% on the day. On July 14, 2003, DYII reported their third quarter (ending May 31, 2003) earnings results: Net patient service revenues increased to $25.6 million from $19.5 million in 2002, a 31% gain from the prior year. Net income rose 52% to $6.27 million from $4.127 million the prior year or $.40 from $.27 a 48% gain for the diluted per share earnings 2003 from 2002. This was reported from BUSINESS WIRE on the NYTimes on the Web.
Morningstar.com is overall favorable with a steady revenue growth from $11 million in 1998, $16.2 million in 1999, $26.0 million in 2000, $43.8 million in 2001 and $64.9 million in 2002. With current revenue at $25 million plus, it looks like current 2003 year should be in range of $90 to $100 million in revenue. Not too shabby at all!
Free cash flow is a bit bouncy with $4 million reported in 2000, $2 million in 2001, $5 million in 2002, but ($1) million in the trailing twelve months. Apparently there has been a large increase in capital spending the past twelve months causing the drop back into negative territory.
The company is solvent with $4.9 million in cash and $29.5 million in other current assets. According to Morningstar, current liabilities stand at $7.6 million and long-term liabilities are at $4.7 million.
According to Yahoo.com, this is a fairly small company with a market cap of $343.8 million. There are 14.8 million shares outstanding with a float of 6.10 million. No dividend is paid. The p/e is a reasonable 18.96, and as of 7/8/03, there were quite a few shares out short...1.17 million ot be exact....representing 9.31 days of average trading volume (short ratio). This is bullish for the stock as these shares need to be eventually covered.
I do not own any shares of this stock....and actually prefer to personally avoid HMO, hospital type companies, which might be strange as I am in that medical field of business. But maybe I am too close to the trees to see the forest? Anyhow, the company DOES look nice and may very well represent an excellent investment.
Regards to all of my friends and please come back and visit often. If you have a website, I would love for you to provide a link for this site on yours....would help me get recognized by Gooogle!
