This is a good idea that you post this kind of article improving is very important thing and this is really excellent.

Some of your % changes are wrong. They should be calculated using the beginning values, not the ending values. See, for example, share price.

Sorry about the sometimes sloppy posts... the idea MFRI although not followed or just negative current reviews seem like an illiquid idea worth listing and doing further research. Many negatives but some historical valuation improvements, 22% quarterly revenue increase and positive backlog.idea needs much more work
