Hey guys, help me out with a little dilemma I'm having...

I've read almost a dozen books about stocks and how to make money on the market and every single one of them said to look for stocks with amazing revenue/earnings growth and that the price of the stock will rise along with it. So my question is, why do stocks with bad fundamentals (revenue/earnings loss) continue to make such huge profits?

A very recent example is Chesapeake Energy (CHK), this company's revenues and earnings have fallen the past year and recent quarter yet the stock continues to make huge gains. What is going on?

Any input would be greatly appreciated!
