Ten times free cash flow and ten times earnings. Massive share buyback. Doubled dividend recently. It is a utility. If you run a fortune 500 company you have to use their database. Thinks it will get a bigger multiple.

(A Top Pick September 10/12. Up 0.84%.) Has been struggling as all technology companies have been struggling with a slow global economy. Businesses do not have a lot of confidence in investing in technology and this company has to develop to stay competitive. Doing a good job and have a strong balance sheet. Increased their dividend. Still a Buy.

Likes the stock. This space continues to make a lot of sense. This is trading at 1X PEG ratio, 10X earnings and a 10% growth rate. Pretty attractive at this point.

About a year ago he was alarmed by the fact that the sales revenue line was decelerating. When he looked into this, he found that the earnings were keeping up but it was because they were cutting costs, which is fine, but that only goes on so long. Revenues are the fuel. He continues to see weak revenues.

Have good products but are up against enterprise spending budgets. Software is not a priority in the same way that data analytics, big data or storage are. They have a product on the enterprise side that has kind of missed the sales targets they originally planned. Made excuses rather than explanations and created doubt in investors’ minds. Missed the boat on a number of things. Senses that they are building the balance sheet in order to do something. Would wait for a better entry point.

Missed numbers a week or so ago. They missed analysts’ expectations but he thought numbers were decent. They doubled dividend in the last year and did a huge share buy-back. They will do very well as economy does well. High margin business (50%) and they have good products. About 10 times earnings. Cheap way to play the IT spend.

He is seeing so many good reasonably cheap ideas out there. Earnings have doubled over the past 2 years but the stock price has gone nowhere and the stock got hammered on their earnings report. To him that is a “fat pitch”. None of their customers are going to leave tomorrow.

Large database and software provider. Last quarter was weak. There were some sales that didn’t close and Easter fell in the previous quarter. Have their own Cloud offering called Fusion, which should do well. Yield of 0.7%.

Last time around their earnings were a bit disapointing, which is when he bought it. Thinks the stock has room to grow. Thinks it will continue growing in the future.

The only disappointing, slightly negative story is that there is still a lot of hardware dependency. Cloud side has been incredible but that area has a lot of competition with SAP AG (SAP-N). Very cash-rich. Over the last year they’ve been focusing on midsize emerging cloud switching delivery companies globally. He is a very minimal holder and wishes he had had a lot more. Over the next year, this is a company where you absolutely want to be.

(A Top Pick Sept 7/11. Up 18.85%.) Dominant business software. Really, really aggressive. Acquisitive. About a 3rd of their sales is out of Europe and in spite of the tough times there, they continue to do very well. The developing world is expanding at a more rapid pace and this company is there for sure.
