In the said letter, Polen Capital highlighted a few stocks and AMN Healthcare Services Inc (NYSE:AMN) is one of them. AMN Healthcare Services Inc (NYSE:AMN) is the largest healthcare staffing company in the United States. Year-to-date, AMN Healthcare Services Inc (NYSE:AMN) stock lost 1.5% and on November 12th it had a closing price of $61.40. Here is what Polen Capital said:
“AMN Healthcare Services also contributed during the quarter. As a leading provider of healthcare workforce solutions and staffing services in the U.S., the business has experienced substantial dislocation because of COVID-19. Still, the company has adapted, adding services like telehealth and audio/video interpretation services, and deepened and expanded its relationships. While demand for its services remains depressed, order flows are beginning to resume. Over the long-term, we believe its competitive position along with secular tailwinds should continue to drive demand for the company’s services and solutions.”
