In the top 25% in all metrics. A really good payout ratio but a small dividend. It is a stable stock. Decent price momentum. Valuation is pretty good.

The premier outsourcing IT consulting company in the world. Strong balance sheet. Has had a fabulous run lately. Always liked this, but not its valuation, though it's okay to buy now and put away from several years.

The world's largest consulting company. It preps companies for the digital world, from the Cloud to internet/network security. They continue to generate handsome profits and cash flow. They reinvest by buying small, cutting-edge consulting firms. They regularly buy back stocks and increase dividends. They hire smart people. A great, long-term story. (Analysts' prce target $166.76)

More and more people are moving to the Cloud and not knowing how to do it. Production for this company is helping companies do it. That will grow, grow and grow in his view. Has a huge cash horde, and are very good at integrating acquisitions. Sees it in the $150-$160 range in a year. Dividend yield of 1.8%. (Analysts’ price target is $138.)

The largest consulting company globally. It has morphed very nicely over the last 5 years, and has become the leading consultant towards the Internet and Cloud computing. Cloud computing is really just getting going. Companies need a lot of help in terms of analysis, and how to go about doing it and how to implement it. This is a huge free cash flow generating machine. Dividend yield of 1.9%. (Analysts price target is $133.50.)

Sort of quasi businesses where you would see some capital spending. They act like the market and have the same beta, but has outperformed the S&P. Chart shows a nice, brilliant trend. They are connected with pretty much every company you could see out there. (Analysts’ price target is $$133.50.)

This has done well over the last 5-10 years. Chart shows a breakout that has taken place in late 2014, but then started to flatten off in 2015. This is a stock that has a higher beta than the marketplace. It is economically sensitive. As the market goes down, this is going to go down, and probably more than the market in the long-term. This is not the time to be adding extra beta into your portfolio.

Used to own this and it did really well on the back of the outsourcing trade. Has fallen recently but he thinks this is a very good long-term story. If you have a longer-term timeframe, this is an interesting stock to watch. If it falls to much lower levels, then think about adding to it.

As companies globally look to reduce costs, there is going to be a continued push to outsource in both the IT and the consulting space. This company is very well-positioned to take advantage of that because of their “best in class” reputation. Have some pricing ability in that sense. A nice business in that it is very asset light in terms of what you need to conduct it.

The leading IT services company globally. Quality large-cap that has under performed this year. People are worried that they do a lot of business for a lot of large financial institutions but people are going to be outsourcing more and more of their technology and will be hiring more and more IT consultants. Very cheap at about 11X forward earnings.

Consultants. They have continued to post great numbers. Their quarterly profit was up 30% from a year ago. Revenue is up 19%. Trades at around 14X earnings. A great company. More than half of their business is outside of the US and Canada. Cheap.
