Face Off: Enterprise Software Companies

January 17, 2012 – Comments (1) | RELATED TICKERS: MSFT , ORCL , BMC

One fact about Joel Greenblatt's Magic Formula® Investing (MFI) strategy is that it has a tendency to identify downtrodden industry sectors by screening several competitors at the same time. Such a situation exists today with a number of large enterprise software companies.

This is interesting to MagicDiligence, as enterprise software is a great business. Software is high margin, with operating margins routinely near 30%, and generates effuse free cash flows as capital investment requirements are small. Higher enterprise software sales do not require new factories or distribution networks. These companies also get 50% or more of their sales through recurring support and maintenance contracts that are renewed at over 90% rates, setting up a stable and reliable source of revenue.  [more]
