on My Watchlist
The Company is a provider of eGovernment services that helps governments use the Internet to reduce costs and provide a higher level of service to businesses and citizens.
NIC provides internet portals for state and local governments in the US. Their ratios compare favorably with other companies in the internet content industry. For example, NIC's p/e is 38 vs industry average of 70. Earnings growth expectation for the forseeable future is about 12% vs industry average of -0.12%. So, by comparison to their industry, they are well positioned for the intermediate future. Here's the problem: This Industry Stinks. Stinky expectations in a stinky industry still look (almost) ok. I tend to always go back to the old Fool Ratio: PEG. It asks how much are you willing to pay for future growth? A PEG of less than 1 is considered a value company. This company has a PEG of somewhere around 3. I don't want to own this industry and this company is no exception.This company came to my attention from a CAPS screener. I chose five star small cap companies with significant insider ownership and unanimous all-star outperforms. See my blog on my CAPS page for other companies from this screener.
