With the recent market moodiness, I was poking around the screener, taking a look at companies with a high cash/share value. The idea was to find high-growth, low-debt, high-performing companies that are well insulated from a double-dip recession, or could use their excess cash for either stock repurchases, or acquisitions, should the recession drag on, or turn worse (double-dip, or full-blown depression). The screen I used was:
Cash Per Share: $8.00+
Rev. Growth Rate (last 3 Yrs): 20.00+
EPS Growth Rate (last 3 Yrs): 8.00+
Current Ratio: 2.00+

Interestingly, I got a lot of past Rule Breaker picks in the list, and a few new ones I've never come across, including this one. Summary: this company is well insulated against risk, and has a solid, three-year track record.
