The fundamentals on this company look good. Both Todd Van Fleet of First Analysis and Daniel Leben of Robert W. Baird & Co. give the stock high marks. The analysts consensus is that although there may be modest growth in revenue of 3.7% year over year a positive earnings growth of 38.8% plus a more generous P/E growth as the market recovers should show good price appreciation. There have also been several positive articles recently on BusinessWire to create more buzz.
The stock came up on my BarChart screener with 13 new highs in the last 20 trading sessions and it is 5 for 5 lately. 12 of 13 of BarChart's technical indicators rate it a 96% buy with the other indicator having a rising hold. There has been price appreciation of 40.35% in the last 65 days so it will be coming up on a lot of buy lists.
On Wall Street Survivor Mark's checklist has the Survivor Sentiment as 5/5 and the technicals 5/5 also.
