BUY
Warned yesterday on earnings. With higher rates, fewer bonds are being issued, so fewer credit ratings needed. Eventually, bonds have to be issued. A cyclical issue, nothing structurally wrong. Trades at 25x earnings. Don't miss a chance to buy one of the world's great businesses at a pretty attractive multiple.

Pandemic saw lots of issuance, as companies shored up balance sheets and took advantage of low interest rates. Company indicates volumes, not necessarily profits, will decline this year. Maturing issuances still need to be rolled over. Recurring revenue from monitoring bonds. Developing new ESG rankings. Recent acquisition will be complementary. She'd add at this price level.
