Hello Friends! Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting my blog, Stock Picks Bob's Advice! As always, please remember that I am an amateur investor, so please remember to consult with your professional investment advisers prior to making any investment decisions based on information on this website.
I wanted to give a brief post this afternoon on Interactive Intelligence (ININ) and why I think
INTERACTIVE INTELLIGENCE (ININ) IS RATED A BUY
First of all, ININ had a great day today in an otherwise mediocre market. ININ made the list of top % gainers on the NASDAQ, closing at $24.60, up $2.06 or 9.14% on the day. I do not have any shares nor do I have any options on this stock.
This is a 'revisit' for me, as I first posted Interactive Intelligence on Stock Picks Bob's Advice on June 30, 2006, when the stock was trading at $14.27.
Here is the 'point & figure' chart on ININ from StockCharts.com with my purchase price/date highlighted:
A couple more points to make. ININ reported their 3rd quarter 2007 results yesterday after the close of trading. Disregarding a one-time tax benefit in 2006, revenue came in at $28.7 million for the current quarter, up 29% over revenue of $22.2 million in 2006. Operating income climbed 23% to $2.1 million from $1.7 million in 2006 and non-GAAP earnings were $.17/share this quarter vs. $.12/share last year (taking out the one-time gain in 2006.)
The company beat expectations as analysts, according to Thomson Financial, expected profit of $.12/share on revenue of $26.9 million.
Finally, the Morningstar.com '5-Yr Restated' financials appear quite solid, with steady revenue growth, steady earnings growth, stable outstanding shares, steady improvement in free cash flow, and a solid balance sheet with no long-term liabilities reported at all.
This is the kind of stock I would be buying if I were buying shares today. In any case, thanks for dropping by!
