Here is our free report on icad for Ask Matt readers.

icad (ICAD) gets a Dan­ger­ous Rat­ing because of these RED FLAGs:

  1. Very Expensive valuation: current stock price implies the company will grow revenues at 20% compounded annually for the next 10 years while also improving ROIC from -3.7% to 1.5% within the same time frame.
  2. Option Liabilities: of $2.1mm or 3% of the current market value
  3. Asset-write-offs:  $4.4mm or 7% of Net Assets

All the details are in our report on icad. For the asset write-offs and their impact on eco­nomic earn­ings see Appen­dix 3 in our report. Our Risk/Reward rat­ing is on page 1.

As per and , icad fits the pro­file of a good stock to sell.
