    Interesting that this one has never been mentioned. It rose on the market's last 2 down days.

    Cheers

    Hi,

    It has certainly been a big winner for those who (are still holding) purchased stock when it last bottomed out in July 2012 (and are still holding). If their medical equipment is as good as their washing machines then I'm not surprised they are selling so well. Today's close of $5.62 is another break into
    Blue Sky on increasing volume. The company's FY2015 Half Year Results Presentation were released to the market just 3 weeks ago and it as since rose 10%.

    You can read it by clicking on this link:
    - http://www.stocknessmonster.com/news-item?S=FPH&E=ASX&N=830643

    Total Shareholder Return (avg annual rate) - 1yr = 57% 3yr = 49%
    Debt/Equity Ratio for the company is 26.9% compared to the market of 31.1%


    Company
    P/E Ratio 29.80
    P/B Ratio 7.93
    P/E Growth 1.88
    P/S Ratio 5.70


    Please be advised that this isn't a recommendation but purely my view - please do your own reseach if you are thinking of either buying or selling this stock.

    FPH made an intraday all time high but a $100k sell at 1.53pm saw price fall back to near yesterday close. Second rejection of higher prices in a row. Maybe a pullback. Don't know, don't care, just feeding the repeater.

    FPH re ASF 2019-12-11.png

    Feb 25, 2016 was the 5th & last post on this thread when the price closed @ $8.35. As can be seen from the above chart he close of today was $20.64 just 52¢ short of the ATH of $21.16.
    Yesterday's bar had a range of 66¢ so quite capable of taking out the ATH within a short period of time OR perhaps an a-b-c wave is forming and price might move down below the $19.60 before taking on the ATH.

    I don't hold.

    Please don't remind me of another one that got away from me. I was shaken out by some abnormal volatility (late 2018) and never re-bought. Arrgh.

    FPH's humidified gases make a big difference to the health and recovery of patients requiring ventilation assistance.

    LOL! Me too, never got over feeling it was too pricey. I have made the same mistake a few times, also got it right a couple, REH & TNE being two I overcame my belief that they were too expensive at the time.

    I entered last week for a short term trade and up a smidgen at the moment.

    FPH broke through $22 and set ATH @ 22.19 before closing $22.02 on Friday which I saw as a positive, so looking forward to FPH continuing it's run next week.

    This one has far exceeded my expectations. That $9 is a distant memory now.
