They've bought a lot of little companies that specialize in "vertical applications" which fulfill a single purpose and do it well. They then divided them into six divisions they manage. They could aquire far more, so they have a big possibility of growth. The street didn't like their last quarter, but investors should look at the long-term: can they use their capital wisely to make these acqusitions? Yes. Based on the past, they are smart acquirers with 31% ROE on these purchases. Smart managers. (0.5% dividend, Analysts' price target: $1,073.58)
