Counting Multiple Ranges over set Threshold in one cell range

Hi all I am looking for a formula that is going to count all of the consecutive months equal to or over a set threshold (in this case the threshold is $10). The goal of this project is to count how long capital is invested in a project before it is paid back.

My problem arises in accounts such as "Widget 2" of the attached when I have invested capital that is paid back but then reinvest capital further down the road. If I do a countif(cells over threshold) I get 7. The problem with this I am trying to find out the average amount of time money is invested before it is returned so in the attached "Widget 1" has money invested for 4 months (equal to or over threshold) and in "Widget 2" money is invested for 3 months and then paid back and then invested again for 4 months before being paid back. Ideally I would like a formula that will return 4 for "Widget 1" and somehow return both 3 and 4 for "Widget 2"

If it is not possible to have a formula that is going to return 2 answers (3 & 4 in the case of "Widget 2") it would still be valuable if I could count the range of the first time the investment breaches the threshold before it is paid back (In the case of "Widget 2" the answer would be 3 as the money was first invested at or above the threshold 3/1/2010 and was invested for 3 months before being paid back down below the threshold.)

4Widget 10021015201055000Count: 4
5Widget 20510151020101515105Count 3 & 4

Thank you,
