Anything red flags flying out there?

Did you read the latest 10-Q/K? Sure looks enticing based on recent earnings reported by Google Finance, but there are almost certainly red flags. I wouldn't be surprised if they won't be able to sustain the recent numbers. Otherwise, why would they be priced so cheaply? 'course, the market tends to under-prices badly beaten-up stocks (if there is any truth to the Little Book :-). Mr. Market was so depressed about CUTR (a top 25 MFI pick a month ago) that even a settlement that appeared quite negative to CUTR made the stock price shoot up!

Before buying a MFI stock, I run the numbers using recent 10-Q & 10-K's to make sure that they're fairly close to those listed on the MFI web site. As long as the numbers add up, I'll buy the stock.
