Separately, TheStreet Ratings team rates the stock as a "hold" with a ratings score of C-.
Brookdale's strengths such as its increase in net income, revenue growth and good cash flow from operations are countered by weaknesses including generally higher debt management risk, disappointing return on equity and a generally disappointing performance in the stock itself.
