As investors search for stocks that have great growth potential, the health care sector is definitely a very appealing place to start one’s search. In Canada, the health care sector is beginning to grow tremendously as the country enters into an era where a larger portion of their population is in the elder senior demographic. For investors, this means that the health care sector is expanding and will continue to grow in the near future, as new retirees enter long-term care homes and require additional services. Extendicare (OTCPK:EXETF) is one of Canada’s premier long-term care corporations, and as the older demographic continues to grow, it have the opportunity to grow and become a company of higher value for any investor. This article will study Extendicare’s business model, earnings, growth potential, and comparisons.
Extendicare is a Canadian corporation that is headquartered in Markham, Ontario, Canada. Despite most of their operations being dominant in the long-term health care sector, it also have operations in retirement living, home health care, workplace health and wellness, Group purchasing (subsidiary is SGP Purchasing Power Network) and management & consulting (subsidiary is Extendicare Assist). One important aspect of this company is it now only operates in Canada. Extendicare has had previous experience operating in the United States (subsidiary was named Extendicare International Inc.), but these operations were discontinued and the company is now focusing on all business north of the border.

trading on the stock market: Globus Maritime Limited(GLBS)
- [By Wayne Duggan]
DryShips isn’t the only shipping stock that has skyrocketed this month; the following stocks’ shares are all up between 320 and 720 percent since November 2:
Diana Containerships Inc (NASDAQ: DCIX). Euroseas Ltd. (NASDAQ: ESEA). Globus Maritime Ltd (NASDAQ: GLBS). Sino-Global Shipping America, Ltd. (NASDAQ: SINO).
One of the primary reasons for the extreme moves in DryShips and other shipping stocks is a combination of large short positions in the stocks and extremely low share counts. DryShips in particular lowered its share count from around 672 million to only around 1 million via a series of reverse stock-splits throughout the year. The splits were intended to allow the stock to maintain its Nasdaq listing after it had lost more than 98 percent of its value in the first 10 months of 2016.
