5. Omega Healthcare Investors (OHI - Get Report) owns long-term care facilities.

The numbers: Fourth-quarter net income rose 3.4% to $16 million, but earnings per share dropped 16% to 16 cents, hurt by a higher share count. Revenue inched up 0.3% to $49 million. The operating margin widened from 51% to 55%. Omega holds $12 million of cash and $738 million of debt.

The stock: Omega has gained 57% in the past year. It sells for a price-to-projected-earnings ratio of 16, a discount to peers.
