Confident Investor comments: At this time, I think that a Confident Investor can cautiously invest in this stock as long as the price is correct. Most of the fundamentals of this company are good, in fact the company ranks as a Good company, but there are some concerns with the price of the stock. Most notably, it has really been beaten up by its competitors and may not be able to survive as a stand-alone company much longer. One of the reason’s it still has a Good Confident Investor Rating is because the P/E is so low compared to its competitors which in turn begs the question if the company is really still viable.
While the company has a Good rating, I have removed it from my Watch List.
