Sunrise Senior Living

One stock in the health care facilities complex where insiders have snapped up a large amount of stock in is Sunrise Senior Living (SRZ). This company is a provider of senior living services in the U.S., Canada and the United Kingdom. Insiders are paying up to own shares of SRZ since this stock is up over 18% in 2011.

Sunrise Senior Living has a market cap of $368.41 million and an enterprise value of $859.59 million. This stock trades at a trailing price-to-earnings of 14.86 and it trades at a forward price-to-earnings of 129.60. Their estimated growth rate for this year is -171.7% and for next year it's pegged at 113.2%. This is not a cash-rich company, since the total cash position on their balance sheet is $82.93 million and their total debt is $578.08 million.

A beneficial owner just bought 230,688 shares, or around $1.37 million worth of stock, between $5.93 to $6.03 per share. This same beneficial owner has also bought over $6 million worth of stock in December before the most recent purchase.

From a technical standpoint, SRZ is currently trading above its 50-day moving average and below its 200-day moving average, which is neutral trendwise. This stock recently found some big buying support at around $4.60 a share. The upside volume has picked up dramatically for SRZ in the last few weeks as the stock has bounced from $4.60 to its current price of $6.47 a share.

If you're bullish on SRZ, I would look to be a buyer off any weakness as long as the recent breakout above $5.90 isn't violated. If you get long and that $5.90 level holds, then I would add aggressively to any long positions once it takes out its 200-day moving average of $7.51 with volume. Look for volume that registers near or above its three-month average of 729,492 shares.
