I have been watching IRF as a potential CANSLIM buy.
Here is a checklist:
C - Current Quarter Earnings:
Most recent quarter earnings $0.73 compared to previous years same quarter earnings of 0.38 is more than 25%.
A - Annual Earnings:
I could not get the earnings growth for the past 5 years. However, annual earnings for the past year (06/2000) is $1.27 compared to current year (till last quarter) is 2.07 which is good.
N - New Products/New services and New high:
Recently IRF introduced new products. Pass.
Is this stock making new high? Yes, but pulled back. Pass.
Management owns about 17% which is also good sign.
S - Supply and Demand:
Shares outstanding: 62.3 Million
This is not low float stock. So grade is Neutral.
L - Leader or Laggard
Definitely leader. Relative Strength is 90. Pass.
Group strength is weak, IBD ratings is E, but group rank is improving. Not a very good sign because the stock is not from leading group.
I - Institutional Support. Institituinal ownership is about 70%. A+ rated funds are holding this stock.
M - Market direction. General market direction is healthy. Pass.
The stock formed a cup base started mid Nov 2000 and tried to break without handle on 05/21/2001 and also volume on the break out day is not very high. Then it corrected about 10% on low volume.
Current cosensus estimates for that next quarter earnings is just 5% higher than the previous year same quarter. So, this will fail in the 'Current quarter earnings' check. Can I still consider this as a potential CANSLIM stock.
