Since The Joint Corp. is at the top of publicly traded chiropractic-focused stocks in the U.S., we are going to gauge them against larger healthcare firms. Looking at simple metrics, The Joint Corp. has the edge when comparing earnings per share and profit margin, in addition to the debt-equity than that of the other two firms. With that being said, they do not have the favorable price-to-earnings ratio that these giants do.
