I mean seriously, a hold rating, really? What's that based on, it cant be based on the financial numbers. Seeing how it is undervalued compared to its peers, it cant be based on it being over-valued.
I hate when these BS firms pull these stupid games to allow their investor buddies to grab shares on the cheap. Luckily, small investors are getting wise to their shenanigans. Watch, in a month or two, it will go to a buy rating "out of the blue" with no new announcements by the company.
I got a copy of the Feltl Report. It was actually mostly positive, but the analyst thought medical costs are going to go up over the next two years and reduce profits, otherwise many details and many good things to say about MDF.
In a recently updated(12/14/10) analysis of MDF, Reuters includes MDF in an "exclusive group of 229 stocks awarded our highest average score of 10". Also mentioned is a strong buy analyst recommendation from two firms following MDF.
