America is fat and this company will help them get thinner. :) I think this one will be up quite a bit sometime over the next year. Don't know that I'd hold for a long time after that.

Despite brief rally last year after SEC troubles cleared, stock continues to decline, with analysts proposing that clients are moving toward the Weight Watchers style of weight management.

Medifast Gross Profitability 204% Sales $568m - $138m COGS / $210m assets = 204%

I’ll start by explaining what the gross profitability anomaly is. It is the ratio of gross profits (revenues less cost of goods sold) to total assets. Rather than relying solely on the income statement, Novy-Marx tied profitability to the balance sheet. Doing so helps to analyze how effectively a company is using its assets to realize gross profits. (A bloated balance sheet will reduce the ratio.) Novy-Marx himself views gross profits as a growth indicator since net earnings can be “punished” for growth-related activities such as advertising and research & development.
