Cantor Fitzgerald initiates coverage on Cross Country Healthcare (NASDAQ: CCRN) with a Buy. PT $6.00.

Analyst, Joseph D. France, said, "After years of economic headwinds, Cross Country's fundamentals have improved, and we believe that the stock, which is very near its all-time low, is attractive at current levels. Nurse staffing volume is half of what it was in 2007, and margins are down by two-thirds from their peak, but although demand has already improved, there is substantial potential upside. We expect a big earnings ramp over the next four to six quarters to push the stock higher."

Analyst France sees FY12 EPS estimate at $0.15 and FY13 at $0.35.
