Doctor! Doctor! Give me the news! I have a bad case of flirting with you!



May 01, 2009 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: AMPH.DL

I have found a financial bright spot! Well, in my opinion it is; American Physicians Service Group, Inc. (AMPH). Through their subsidiaries they provide medical professional liability insurance services for physicians and other healthcare providers, primarily in Texas. They have made a reputation for themselves by steering away from questionable securities


Although I am not attracted to financial stocks I have been flirting with their stats. And if I may say so, they are sexy.


Share Price: 20.67

Market Cap: 143.21

Fwd P/E: 7.95

Profit Margin: 25.64%

ROE: 13.86

Total Cash: 22.06M (3.16 per share)

Total Debt: 0

Inside Ownership: 9.03%

Average Volume: 13,600


One stat that is off putting is the Quarterly Revenue Growth YOY of  -23.6% and Quarterly Earnings Growth of  -59.10%. In the age we live in that could be a lot worse.


I am a huge fan of small caps. I love to find ones that have the numbers above. With so many larger financial corporations are being punished by shareholders I believe that smaller niche players like AMPH will gain market share and grow moving forward. I am VERY tempted to move outside my circle of knowledge and purchase a chunk of this for my Roth.


I invite you to share your thoughts and opinions on this or other small caps that have driven you to distraction .


Foolishly Yours,




P.S. – Please, no discussions on underwear. You know who you are.
