••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score

The Company is a provider of health information services to consumers, physicians and other healthcare professionals, employers and health plans through its public and private online portals and health-focused publications.

The sponsors and advertisers of its public portals include pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and medical device and consumer products companies. The Company's private portals enable employers and health plans to provide its employees and members with access to personalized health and benefit information and decision-support technology that helps them to make more informed benefit, treatment and provider decisions. In addition, it offers, clients of its private portals, telephonic health coaching services on a per participant basis across an employee or plan population.
