Investors have been somewhat rewarded with an increase of year-over-year revenue. Revenue reported was $211.83 million for 2010 vs. $131.50 million for 2009. The bottom line has rising earnings year-over-year of $-2.52 million for 2010 vs. $-33.25 million for 2009. The company's earnings before income and taxes are rising with an EBIT year-over-year of $-5.52 million for 2010 vs. $-33.29 million for 2009.

Disclaimer: I use a proprietary blend of technical analysis, financial crowd behavior, and fundamentals in my short-term trades, and while not totally the same in longer swing trades to investments, the concepts used are similar. You may want to use this article as a starting point of your own research with your financial planner. I use Seeking Alpha, Edgar Online, Google Finance, MSN Money, CNBC, Zacks and Yahoo Finance for most of my data. I use the "confirmed" symbols from earnings.com that I believe to be of the most interest. I also often include some that are not "confirmed" but are "Proposed" for the same day. The numbers are only as good as the sources. Many of the ADRs that are relatively new provide a special challenge that can be very time consuming to figure out the "best" number. Chinese ADRs that are new seem to be especially prone to conflicts with Reuters, EDGAR Online, and other sources. Not everyone puts companies into the same sector. I use Reuters as my primary guide to keep it consistent.
