On Monday, it hit an all-time high during a fabulous jobs report, but then yesterday the market didn't like its quarterly report, which beat in earnings, inline sales and slightly raised full-year forecast. He liked this report, but Wall Street didn't. PAYX shares plunged 5%. He saw this coming, because PAYX tends to report good numbers then sells off, which creates a buying opportunity before grinding higher.

The stimulus package is a plus, but the vaccine roll-out has been a disaster. PAYX delivered a strong beat two days before Christmas, rallied $3, but then reversed and is now 10% off its peak. Nuts. Everytime this pulls back from a great quarter, it's a buying opportunity

Today it reported a solid top and bottom beat, and raised their forecast. Revenues and earnings are down, though, but today's numbers far exceeded expectations. Still, the stock fell 2.5% today. After last July's report, the stock also sold off but then came back. This pattern could repeat.

PAYX has a solid reputation, but everyone in payroll processing faces rising jobless claims and layoffs and this hurts this sector. Payroll is driven by macro factors, not business fundamentals. Avoid this space and wait until a recession bottom and payrolls improve. Also, these companies won't earn interest on the floats they hold because rates are near zero.

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.
