WHERE do I keep finding these companies? lol. Really, it is quite mechanical, just scan the top percentage gainers, emphasize stocks over $10, look at latest quarter, Morningstar.com....and there you have it! Remember, I cannot emphasize enough, I want all of you who read these posts to discuss these ideas with your own professional investment advisor before acting on them!
Anyhow, enough with the lecture, SM&A (WINS) is "...a provider of competition management services, business consulting and program services." They came out with earnings today before the stock opened and even though the rest of the market is down, WINS is up strong. Currently, WINS is trading at $13.248, up $1.218 or 10.12%.
Today, as reported on Yahoo.com from BUSINESS WIRE, WINS reported their third quarter results for the period ended September 30, 2003. Revenue for the quarter was $18.7 million, an increase of 31% over the same period last year. Net income was $2.9 million or $.13/share, an increase of 78% from last year's results.
Morningstar.com shows two different revenue growth patterns. Looking at the "10-Yr Income" tab, we find revenue increasing between 1995 and 2000 and then dropping off significantly to 2001.
