I am going to try and post this again to see if the table will turn out better.

I agree with your assessment of Resmed. I bought some in June 2000. Before I did, I checked out their website and printed off their annual reports. I then produced a spreadsheet that analysed the business according to RuleMaker criteria and I gave it my own score of 83%. I also check out a stock's 1000 day average price chart and with Resmed you will see a steady uninterrupted climb. I say go for it !!!

My spreadsheet figures, if they turn out, are shown below.

ResMed 96 97 98 99 2000
Cash 5,510 9,077 15,526 11,108 18,250
