We need to also look at the 20 quarter chart to get the real picture.

Here you can see what I'm getting at and why this stock is poised to do well. If you look at columns 12 and 16 you can see the FC bar is red or negative compared to column 20. If you go down to line 11 you will see the Free Cash flow trailing tweleve month growth, notice prior to the last 3 quarters it was negative for 5 quarters. Notice this is the fastest growth over the last 12 quarters. In addition the last line ROE is the highest in the last 20 quarters.
