Applying the Foolish Eight Criteria to this stock seems to show it has most winning characteristics of a Small Cap gem (From Quicken.com: Sales growth slightly less than 25% at 24.5% and Insider holdings slightly less than 10% at 8.2%).

Applying some additional financial statement analysis (I like to use Foolish Erik's Small Cap grading method) shows that this stock is an "F" for debt/cash ratio, which kitkatklub made reference to. Is this a justifiable time to run with a little more debt than normal at "favorable rates"? If so, and if you can justify ignoring the "F" for debt/cash ratio, the other four metrics give an "A" (again, assuming you can round 24.5% sales growth up to 25%). THe other "A" categories are for Gross margins high enough, receivable growth and inventory growth both low enough (as compared to sales growth).

I am intersted in the "Story" of this stock and need to get a better feel for management integrity and ability before thinking about buying into this company. Interested in going long.

Good luck, Fools!
