To OTC Journal Members:

As promised this past weekend our mid week edition contains a review of the September quarter financial statement released by MedGrup (OTC BB: CODX) last Friday after the market closed.

Before covering MedGrup, one quick announcement: This Friday, after the market closes, we will be releasing our November profile. This particular company has an 11 on a scale of 1 to 10 for excitement. The story is almost like a Hollywood movie. Budget some time to read over the weekend.
 

MedGrup (OTC BB: CODX) Update

MedGrup's September quarterly earnings release was right on track with our expectations, and only reinforces our belief that the stock is currently worth $6 per share based on growth rate and trailing profitability.

If you never read our profile on the company, now would be a good time to do so. There was some confusion in the way Friday's press release was worded, and the stock pulled back slightly. We have seen a high of nearly $5 since our original release at $3.13, and the stock has made a round trip on light volume. Click Here to read our original profile.

MedGrup's numbers demonstrate a company continuing the blistering pace of nearly doubling in size with every quarterly statement. Below is a table which compares MedGrup's performance in the September quarter as compared to the same quarter the previous year:

While revenues grew from $602,280 to $1,026,184, profits actually shrunk from $145,049 to $132,446. This is due to the high costs the company incurred during the quarter to ramp up its infrastructure to handle the new business which is coming in. In order to handle the volume of new business the company is hiring and training new coders. There is a several month lag time between hiring new employees and having them generate revenues.

The money they invested in growth will come out in the form of profits over the next several quarters. We continue to believe this stock is undervalued and under followed. Time should change those conditions.
