They help companies be better through technology. It used to be cost cutting and outsourcing and now it is moving more to how to use technology to differentiate the product. They are focused on healthcare and financial services. There is quite a bit of run room in this one. There was a temporary profit warning and she bought into that.

They do consulting in IT sort of business process outsourcing. Big in financial services but recently made an acquisition on the healthcare side. Had bought into this on an “earnings warn”, which was followed by a big pop in the stock when they did better than what they had warned. Have the ability to make companies more efficient. Historically it has been all about cost-cutting, efficiency, etc. but now it is about how to use technology to differentiate and grow your business and generate revenue. Technology has a lot of room to grow and this company is at the heart of it.

(A Top Pick July 5/13. Up 53.2%.) Had a 2-for-1 stock split. Stock sold off because of concerns on new immigration laws in the US. Those have been watered down substantially, and the stock has responded accordingly. Still a Hold, but at the upper end of earnings where he feels comfortable.

(A Top Pick Feb 6/14. Up 1.69%.) 2-for-1 stock split. Has grown revenues and net income earnings per share at over 10% per year for the last 10 years and longer. Even through the recession of 2007-2009 it was growing at 10% plus revenues and net income earnings per share. Basically an IT consulting company. Companies are not spending money on building new plants and expanding, but are spending it on cutting costs. Trading at around 20X this year’s earnings so it still looks attractive.

A technology integration company. They do software installations in IT services. Earnings have been growing between 40/50% a year. Have beaten the estimates about five quarters in a row. Corporate America is flush with cash right now and are using it to reinvest in their business.
