    • I own EXEL stock, but I think you are stretching this Marty Zweig thing. This is a snippet about Marty. If my memory serves me correct he was a regular on the Louis Rukeyser's Wall Street Week Show, and I seriously doubt Marty Zweig ever even heard of EXEL. I used to watch the Friday night weekly show without fail.

      Fundamental Analysis

      Martin Zweig does not study any single stock in great detail. He prefers to use what he calls a shotgun approach. He screens thousands of stocks purely on their financials. Zweig finds that 5 out of 8 of the stocks that get through his screens perform well.

      When it comes to stock-picking, Martin Zweig screens many fundamental numbers. He gives greatest weight to two parameters - the earnings trend and the pe ratio (price/earnings ratio).

      The Two Most
      Important Fundamental Criteria

      Earnings Trend
      Before he will consider buying a stock, Martin Zweig needs to see the company's earnings rising consistently for the last four or five years. He also needs to reassure himself that nothing has gone wrong recently, so he checks that the most recent quarterly earnings have shown growth compared to the same quarter a year ago.

      The upward earnings trend should be backed by a parallel sales trend. Zweig believes that earnings growth will not be sustainable if earnings are rising due to cost cutting rather than increased sales.

    • Is that for the overall market or EXEL in particular?

      Sentiment: Strong Buy
