Cogent's valuation is pretty silly. Puff pieces by analysts can't keep it pumped up forever. But if you want to pay 30x earnings for a company that has never shown any revenue or earnings consistency, then I can't stop you.

This met a high level screen to indicate a buy and strong outperform against its peers (other tickers in its industry). My 1st version of this spreadsheet devles deep into the company's balnace sheet and recent income statements, combined with other relevant price data for the company including insider/institutional holdings, short interest, debt levels, etc.
Testing capabilities of this 1st version of my automated, valuation spreadhseet matched with my personal criteria and see how it holds up.
