Even though the debt-to-equity ratio shows mixed results, the company's quick ratio of 0.28 is very low and demonstrates very weak liquidity.

The gross profit margin for MCCC is rather high; currently it is at 58.50%. Regardless of MCCC's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of 6.00% trails the industry average. MCCC is off 11.36% from its price level of one year ago, reflecting the general market trend and ignoring their higher earnings per share compared to the year-earlier quarter. The fact that the stock is now selling for less than others in its industry in relation to its current earnings is not reason enough to justify a buy rating at this time.

MCCC had been rated a hold since Nov. 8, 2007.

Perfect World ( PWRD) has been initiated at hold. Perfect World, through its subsidiaries, operates as an online game developer and operator in the People's Republic of China. It primarily develops three-dimensional (3D) online games based on its proprietary Angelica 3D game engine and game development platform. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its notable return on equity, robust revenue growth and largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that the growth in the company's earnings per share has not been good.

When compared with other companies in the software industry and the overall market, PWRD's return on equity exceeds that of the industry average and significantly exceeds that of the S&P 500.
