I picked up a small position in URGI last week strictly as a momentum play. Relative strength over 3,6,12 months has been 100. I was turned on to it by an analyst's recommendation that I saw on Bloomberg TV. He was waxing ecstatic about same store sales which have been very high. I am going from memory but I believe they have been in excess of 10% growth.

What little research data is available, I picked up from the Microsoft Investor pages and The Fool pages. The financials look good to me including industry comparisons, however, the clincher for me was the same store growth figures and I had to take that on trust form this analyst.

However, all of the above being said, when I see the numbers of grossly obese people walking the streets I cant help but think that this company willmake money.
