They recently had a joint venture with Baker-Hughes (BHGE-N), where Baker Hughes is co-marketing one of their products. It would make sense for Baker Hughes to take over this company. Schlumberger (SLB-N) is the only company with a competing product. (Analysts’ price target is $9.50.)

They provide software that simulates both the field and production in oil/gas fields. Took a hit along with the energy related names, but it kind of bottomed out around November when people realized it was a very resilient company with about 97% of their revenues recurring. Recently added to his position. A great long-term hold. Dividend yield of just under 3%.

Great company. They have software for modelling reservoirs, including heavy oil and offshore oil. They work with some very large oil/gas companies. Fantastic margins. They pay a dividend as well as special dividends. Clean and pristine balance sheet. Trading at about 20X forward earnings. He would like it to come back about 5%-7% and would then get back into the name.

Provides software that helps companies to model very sophisticated oil/gas fields and helps with the extraction. Previously had been exclusively focused on oil, but have branched out to gas. Very attractive long-term play. Nice yield. They are just on the cusp of developing new software that will be rolling out in the next couple of quarters. Attractive at these levels. A lower risk, lower volatility way to play oil and gas.

ROE is 54%, which is huge. A free cash flow generator, and does really well, but not sure what a fair value would be for it. PE on a trailing basis is 39X, and on a forecast basis is 36X. Earnings growth is a very modest 6%. Looks to be fully valued. Thinks there are other stocks that will perform better over the next 12 months.

If considering buying he would be bit cautious because of his views on the market. 18 multiple is reasonable for the tech sector.
