This is a neat little company -- a bank/financial computer solutions company with increasing recurring revenues, a consistent history of FCF generation, no long-term debt, solid insider ownership, tenured leadership, and trading at 12x FCF is nice. The risk here, obviously, is if small- and mid-size banks are the next to fall or consolidate. However, I think with the big banks busy gobbling each other up and picking through the dumpster full of fallen foes, the smaller banks should fly under the radar while this credit mess works itself out. Plus, smaller banks could see more customers after watching the big boys fall.
