Ranks 288 which is roughly the middle of the pack. Earnings are expected to grow by 15% against a 21 P/E gives you a P/E to growth of about 1.3, which is fairly pricey. The business is stable and growing and there is a clear need for their product. Better opportunities elsewhere.

Like a lot of companies in the technology field, they tend to sell at pretty high multiples. A well positioned player in the business intelligence field and data mining. Have some excellent products out there. Multiple is too rich for him.

It violated the upward trend line in February. Thinks the tech sector needs a break. We'll take some money off the table.

Had a correction and dropped about one third of its former uptrend. You want to see it break above $50 in a couple of months. If it doesn't, it means the trend is likely to fail and you enter a consolidation phase. It was a pretty powerful trend, which is a good sign. If it breaks through the $50, the target is $60.

Chart shows a strong uptrend. Broke out to a new high in Nov/06 and if this is a good break out, we should not get below the old high of about $48-$49, which would be a technical weakness. For new money, put stops below that level.

Should be a good hold for the next year or two. Goes through different product cycles and its latest product is just getting out into the marketplace. Could have a good healthy year of strong sales.

Rumoured as a potential takeover candidate. #150 in his model which is in the top 20%. Analysts have increased earnings estimates 12% in the last 90 days. Expected to be $1.82 for Oct/07 giving a 23 P/E. Reasonable price.
