Okay, I began watching this stock when it's earnings announcement made it fall through my Foolish Analysis screen. Since I have been watching it, the damn stock has risen 15%. It has risen even on days that the market has fallen (like today). Today it closed at 20. Now I am concerned that it might be too high to be worth buying. It seems like the historical pattern is to go to about 21 and then drop (precipitously) back to the mid-teens.

According to my rough calculations, the PEG is about .90, the YPEG is about .85 and the DPEG is about .78.

What do you think? Is it still a reasonable price?
