    Rba trading too high offers nothing to investors

    The past most has proven it's time to bail out of this pig!


    EARNINGS PER SHARE PERSISTENCE: [FAIL]

    The Cornerstone Growth methodology looks for companies that show persistent earnings growth without regard to magnitude. To fulfill this requirement, a company's earnings must increase each year for a five year period. RBA, whose annual EPS before extraordinary items for the last 5 years (from earliest to the most recent fiscal year) were 0.36, 0.34, 0.51, 0.55 and 0.72, fails this test.


    PRICE/SALES RATIO: [FAIL]

    The Price/Sales ratio should be below 1.5. This value criterion, coupled with the growth criterion, identify growth stocks that are still cheap to buy. Unfortunately, RBA's Price/Sales ratio of 7.21, based on trailing 12 month sales, fails this criterion.


    RELATIVE STRENGTH: [FAIL]

    The final criterion for the Cornerstone Growth Strategy requires that the Relative Strength of the company be among the top 50 of the stocks screened using the previous criterion. This gives you the opportunity to buy the growth stocks you are searching for just as the market is embracing them. RBA has a relative strength of 86. Therefore, it would fail not only the three previous required criterion but also the overall methodology.
