Investing in low cost medical clinics
October 6, 2006 5:29 AM   Subscribe

How can I invest in low-cost medical clinics like RediClinic, CheckUps and Take Care? These are clinics that are inside drugstores and Wal-Mart and Target. I've visited their websites and searched in Google but they do not seem to be listed on any stock exchanges.

RediClinic's parent company, Interfit, is privately owned - you can't buy stock. For the other outfits: check if they have corporate owners, and if those owners are publically traded.

This article mentions another firm doing the same sort of business.

If you haven't already, try checking to see if they are listed as over-the-counter securities (i.e., companies that do not meet the financial qualifications to be traded on formal exchanges like NYSE.)

I know that Minute Clinic was just bought by CVS, which is a public company.
