If you believe the job numbers from Monday, they were substantial. This name is a beneficiary from job growth. They deal with small and mid-sized companies with and pays out a dividend of 3.6%. They have been growing business into HR so the dividend is going higher. It's a cash cow since they bank the payroll money. (Analysts’ price target is $85.44)

Take a half-position now, then wait for a pullback. As businesses hire, PAYX will do well. And US unemployment is at record lows. He's owned this forever and will hold on. Drill down on US unemployment figures, because it isn't balanced; there are pockets of higher unemployment which is concerning.

non-FANG suggestion? He likes the payment processing space -- ADP, Paychex, Visa, or Mastercard. He would like to buy on a dip.

At the end of the day, the FED is just printing money. They are trying to focus on the REPO market. He is positive about the stock. It is in the top 100 of the S&P 500. This stock ticks all the boxes. Model price is $75.28, -11% but certainly on a pullback would be a buyer.

CSCO vs. PAYX. You can own both because they're not in the same industries. Both growing around the same rate. Stigma for Cisco is the hardware side. Its growth is coming from security and software. Paychex is chugging along, with HR, insurance, payroll deposits. Paychex gets to earn interest over the weekend in free money, so it's a cash cow. Whereas Cisco is a bit more cyclical.

Revenue growth up 7% last quarter. Interesting acquisition has brought them beyond payroll and into HR. Seeing higher earnings growth because of that. Trading at 20-25x earnings. Dividend's going up. Every time the Fed raises rates, PAYX makes a ton of free money by holding over the weekend before remitting.

Payroll processor for small/medium-sized companies. They're a cash cow. Interest rates are rising, so they make more money. In the last quarter, organic growth was 9%, 3x the US economy's rate. Profits up 18%. Dividend rising. Unlike Square, PAYX deals with all the States in America. Trades at 18-21x earnings. Dividend around 3%.

Model price is 63.70 so it is 12% overvalued. When it comes back to the model price he would be a buyer.

Similar to ADP who is focused on the small and medium sized companies. When the economy is really strong this company will do well. His concern is that the economy may be at peak capacity, with unemployment less than 4% -- how many more paycheques can they write? This is also outside the seasonal peak for the sector. Technically, it needs to hold key support near these levels.

This company had a great run in 2017, but recently has failed to perform. Price is two times growth in the P/E (i.e. the P/E is around 20, while growth is about 10%) – this is expensive. Keep it on your radar.

Just made an acquisition in Europe where they are growing to become more international. It's a cash cow--they bankroll payroll deductions before IRS payments so they make the interest. 3.3% dividend yield. Stock fell way too fast, so here's an opportunity. (Analysts' price target $65.02)
