They have a lot of government contracts, which is good, but low-margin. CGY doesn't need a lot of capital, which is a plus. It's a slow, steady, cheap company. It's alright, boring. If there's a recession, this will be consistent.

Difficult company to describe. They are in different segments. They have a Health Care Clinical Management segment, they do emergency response training and they are also in manufacturing for satellite and some other work. They brought a new CEO a few years back and he has put some good initiatives to drive growth.

He used to own it a long time ago. It stalled out and he sold. It is finally getting traction again. They are trying to diversify the business. If they lose a big contract it could really impact the results. The dividend is safe. He would like to buy it much more cheaply but he would not buy at these levels.

It has a great balance sheet. They supply IT professionals to governments. It went on a tear after doing nothing for 5 years. The valuation is low and business is very stable. Treat it as an income stock. They keep buying back stock. It is not a bad little company.

Ranks well in his model but the big challenge is that there is only one analyst covering it. This analyst has shaved his estimates by 6% in the last 90 days. Overall growth is not forecast to happen for the September year-end. Earnings expected to go from $1.86 down to $1.77. Company has a 21% return on equity with the cash flow yield of 4%. 5.1% dividend yield.
