  • Harry has posted Charts of the Day video on BABY at TheTechTrader site noting:Natus Medical Inc. (BABY) is a stock we traded back in Oct 2013 when it broke out, consolidated, had a nice swing trade put on it that worked, consolidated for six months, popped, consolidated for a couple more months, broke out, pulled back, and was a little choppy, but on Wednesday, it popped 55 cents, or 1.7%, on 865,000. That’s the biggest volume since Jan. It got up to 33.20, which is a new all-time high.

  • Not sure if it will increase the stock price all that much, but it certainly justifies it staying at present levels. Bad news for the shorts on this board...

    The Company reported non-GAAP net income of $10.6 million for the third quarter ended September 30, 2014, an increase of 16.5% over the prior year of $9.1 million. Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share increased to $0.33 for the third quarter of 2014 from $0.30 per diluted share reported for the third quarter of 2013.

    For the nine months ended September 30, 2014, the Company reported revenue of $261.8 million, an increase of 3.3% compared to $253.5 million reported for the same period in 2013. GAAP net income was $21.8 million, or $0.67 per diluted share, compared with net income of $13.7 million, or $0.45 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2013.

    The Company reported non-GAAP net income of $27.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2014, an increase of 39.7% over the prior year of $19.9 million. Non-GAAP earnings per diluted share increased to $0.86 for the third quarter 2014 from $0.65 per diluted share reported for the same period in the previous year.

    Cash and cash equivalents increased by $1.8 million to $57.8 million during the quarter and total debt was reduced by $8.4 million to $8.0 million. The Company also repurchased $2.5 million of company stock during the third quarter. Cash flow from operations was approximately $16 million for the third quarter.

    "I am very pleased with our third quarter results as we achieved record revenues and earnings. Both revenue and earnings exceeded the top end of guidance. I am most satisfied with our 63% gross profit margin as well as recording over 5% organic revenue growth. Consistent organic revenue growth and improving margins have been major goals for Natus in 2014 and our results demonstrate significant progress to the achievement of these goals," said Jim Hawkins, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company.

    "I remain excited about our Peloton Hearing Screening Service business as we added 17 hospitals during the quarter and we ended the quarter with 39 hospitals under contact. Including contracts already signed during October, we have exceeded our 2014 goal of 40 hospitals under contract by the end of the year," Mr. Hawkins continued.

    10/22---- BABY stock drops on earnings.

    by davidsonisaackson Oct 14, 2014 6:24 PM

    Well sell and dont boutger anymore.

  • I see stock falling to $22 a share.

  • I`ve owned BABY from $17 a share and believe the top has been reached at $31.
    To hold here is stupid. I see BABY falling back to $15-$18 dollar range AFTER earnings and guidance disappoint. I will take a new position at $12.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    Looks Bullish to this tape reader

    by onepoint272 Aug 3, 2014 5:51 PM

    I haven't bot any yet. It's been in a tight trading range (TR) the last few weeks. Of course the question is the same as it is for all TR's, is it being accumulated or distribute? Since there aren't any signs of distribution, I think I have to go with the trend, the demand in the background, and assume it is being re-accumulated for the next leg higher.

    On the daily chart, I have the short-term TR defined by the low of Aug 7th at 27.07 and by the high of Aug 14th at 28.22. It had a sign of strength on Aug 26th and broke above the 28.22 high. But then it failed to rally on lack of demand and settled back just inside the range. But there doesn't seem to be enough supply either (willing sellers) to take it down.

    The daily chart is still bullish as is the weekly and monthly. A sudden sign of weakness would change that but if it just drifts lower, it would have to get under $22.52 (the low of the week of Jan 27th) to be considered bearish imo.
