$MED Oversold and Due For A Bounce

NYSE:MED   MEDIFAST INC
$MED is now extremely oversold with an RSI just above 20. After missing earnings last Friday, what's notable is that traders did buy the dip and we got a green candle on the day. We believe this is a sign that $MED is now too cheap to ignore. $MED is now trading at just 12x earnings and a PEG of 0.62.

Medifast (NYSE:MED) closed down 27% on the heels of its Q3 report. Highlights:

Revenue: $190.1M (+36.5%).

Net income: $15.9M (+15.4%); EPS: $1.32 (+15.8%).

Q4 guidance: Revenue: $157M - 167M; EPS: $1.03 - 1.13.

2019 guidance: Revenue: $700M - 710M from $730M - 750M; EPS: $5.80 - 5.90 from $6.75 - 6.95. Guidance revised due to "short-term challenges."
