Here is another reason I don't think CGO is overbought.
I like to use GE for comparison purposes because it is one of the
best companies in America (and loved by investors).
Now I think GE is over bought, but the market definitely
doesn't think so.

     est. long term annual growth
       GE 14.27%
      CGO 19.00%

     yr 2000 earnings gain over 1999 (est)
       GE 18%
      CGO 25%

     profit margin (TTM)
       GE 9.53%
      CGO 9.57%

     debt to equity
        GE 4.30
       CGO 2.85

     book value per share
        GE $4.64
       CGO $13.03

      cash flow per share
         GE $1.88
        CGO $4.56

      P/E    GE 48.02
            CGO 22.58

These figures are from Motley Fool 8/25
