Financial ratios :

  • PER = 28.00
  • EV/EBITDA = 21.32
  • Growth rate Year over Year = 33%

So we have a growth rate > PER (like Peter Lynch likes) with a decent debt to equity ratio.

Pros and cons

  • Pro : Revenue growth rate and EPS.
  • Pro : Industry. Ransomware and hacking have become more frequent over the last years affecting hospitals and big companies. The market should become bigger and bigger.

Management

The CEO of the company is Jack B. Blount. The Plaxton family controls about 30% of the shares.

I didn’t find any recent insider activity except for the option exercise.

I bought this position one month ago at $4.00 per share. It’s still cheap at $5 according to me.
