Hi Arty,

Chart does indeed tick all the boxes, don't know how much upside you could reasonably expect though. RMD has managed to hold above current price point only 8 monthly candles since 2005.
Now I'm certainly not one to talk fundamentals, but unless there has been significant value added to the Company recently , then it may be that RMD is close to the top of cycle and therefore not represent good buying.

However, depends entirely on your preferred timeframe

Cheers, Mistagear

Already in Arty
Bought em just after open today. Had been watching them since the bottom reversal day on the 6th.
Don't know if all the hype about the new elected republican will make a diff, but they're all ramping it will help health stocks in the US & this one has a big exposure there.
Worth a pun.

This was out before the results were known & well - they did win.

Coming back into view after today's strong candle.
When I zoom out on the weekly chart, it's interesting that MACD seems to squeeze into the tip of a Bear-Bull Divergence conflict. Which will prevail? No real way of telling just yet - although the recent Trinity FTFF levels have been rising 3 steps up.

On the Daily chart, today's breakout appears to tick all the boxes - except for those that I've overlooked. Somebody will tell me. rolleyes.gif

Not on yet, but will give it some serious consideration tomorrow.

It's been some time that RMD attracted any interest. wacko.gif Strange ... considering the posts lavished on other stocks ...

Today's price and volume action can't remain unnoticed. Are we on course for a new High?
When Trinity fired in June and August, those signals were defintely followed by tradeable advances. This time, even the volume is sufficient to tick the third box for a green signal.

Where does the chart come from? The Weekly chart shows the turnaround in early June rated even an "investment-grade" move into mid-August; the ensuing consolidation could be interpreted as a "buy-the-dip" opportunity. Still not too late even for that?

Maybe Spicy Posh can make a song and dance about it wub.gif

RESMED INC ANNOUNCES RECORD FINANCIAL RESULTS FOR THE

QUARTER AND SIX MONTHS ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2008

SYDNEY, Australia, February 6, 2009 - ResMed Inc. (ASX: RMD) today announced record revenue and income for the quarter ended December 31, 2008. Revenue for the December 2008 quarter was US$223.0 million, a 10% increase (a 16% increase on a constant currency basis) over the quarter ended December 31, 2007. For the quarter ended December 31, 2008, income from operations was US$43.3 million and net income was US$33.9 million, an increase of 18% and 26%, respectively, compared to the quarter ended December 31, 2007. Diluted earnings per share for the quarter ended December 31, 2008 were US$0.44, an increase of 29% compared to the quarter ended December 31, 2007.

SG&A expenses were US$70.1 million for the December 2008 quarter, an increase of US$2.4 million or 4% (a 14% increase on a constant currency basis) over the same period in fiscal 2007. SG&A expenses were favorably impacted by the appreciation of the U.S. dollar against international currencies. This increase in SG&A was primarily due to expenses necessary to support sales growth. SG&A costs were 31% of revenue in the December 2008 quarter, compared to 33% in the same period in fiscal 2007.

R&D expenses were US$14.9 million for the December 2008 quarter, or approximately 7% of revenue. R&D expenses were flat (a 27% increase on a constant currency basis) compared to the prior year quarter. R&D was also positively impacted by the appreciation of the U.S. dollar against international currencies, particularly the Australian dollar. Research and development outlay reflects ResMed’s continuing commitment to innovation within its product portfolio, as well as an ongoing commitment to clinical research and product development.

Amortization of acquired intangibles of US$1.7 million (US$1.1 million net of tax) incurred during the quarter ended December 31, 2008, consisted of amortization of assets associated with our acquisitions of Resprecare, Hoefner, Saime and PolarMed. Stock-based compensation costs incurred during the quarter ended December 31, 2008 of US$6.8 million (US$4.9 million net of tax) consisted of expenses associated with stock options granted to employees and our employee stock purchase plan.

During the December 2008 quarter, we donated US$1.0 million (US$0.6 million, net of tax) to the ResMed Foundation. The Foundation was established primarily to promote research into the deleterious medical consequences of untreated sleep-disordered breathing.

For the six months ended December 31, 2008 revenue was US$440.9 million, an increase of 14% over the six months ended December 31, 2007. For the six months ended December 31, 2008, income from operations and net income were US$79.9 million and US$61.9 million, an increase of 16% and 21%, respectively, compared to the six months ended December 31, 2007. Diluted earnings per share for the six months ended December 31, 2008 were US$0.80 per diluted share, an increase of 23% compared to the six months ended December 31, 2007.

Inventory, at US$143.1 million, decreased by US$15.2 million compared to June 30, 2008. Accounts receivable days sales outstanding, at 76 days, increased by 4 days compared to June 30, 2008.

Kieran T. Gallahue, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "In the second quarter of fiscal 2009, we continued to show strong growth year over year. Sales in the Americas totaled US$123.1 million, a 23% increase over the prior year quarter while sales outside the Americas were US$99.9 million, a decrease of 3% over the prior year quarter. As expected, sales outside of the Americas were impacted by currency movements, in particular the depreciation of the Euro against the U.S. dollar. In constant currency terms, sales outside of the Americas increased by 8% over the prior year quarter. Cash flow from operations for the December 2008 quarter was a very strong US $56.5 million.

"Our new product cycle remains in full swing as we launched a number of new products during the second quarter. In the mask category, we launched the Activa LT, which offers patients superior performance, yet is quieter and less obtrusive. We also launched the Swift LT for Her, our first gender-specific product, targeted at the rapidly growing female segment of the therapy market. Our VPAP product line continues to gain momentum with the release of the complete family of bilevel devices in the smaller S8 box. Looking forward, our pipeline of products scheduled for release over the next 18 months remains full and demonstrates our ongoing commitment to bringing innovative technologies to market across both the mask and flow generator product lines.

"We were also very encouraged to see gross margin expand in Q2. We expect continued improvement over the course of fiscal 2009 as we benefit from accelerating sales of our high margin masks and VPAP products, continuing efforts to leverage cost efficiencies across our global organization and the depreciation of the Australian dollar. We remain well positioned to execute our strategy of introducing innovative new products and driving adoption of sleep-disordered breathing therapies in this rapidly growing global market."

That's the stock market for you, more emotional responses than rational evaluation. How far will it go into the over brought range will it go, is the question .
