However, I believe an explanation is required regarding why you would select a stock with obvious ck criteria flaws over one that currently meets all the criteria. Otherwise, why have the criteria at all?

Something to rememeber here is that not every company we purchase will meet all the criteria. Direction is often more important than location.

For example, we bought Gap even though it falls short on gross margins. However, these have been trending up over time and they meet the net margin requirements.

The same could be said for Cisco's flow ratio and receivables turnover. They have been improving on a quarter by quarter basis.
