Run by a bunch of twits who cannot even estimate revenues. 4Q was revised AFTER YE?It will go up as banking industry recovers, but the officers pay themselves $5mil in salary and stock (CEO just got a $300k bonus) while the company under performs (what else is new), so what's going to be left for us chumps who put our trust in them? There are a ton of better stocks to invest in.I am totally at a loss as to why this is 5 star.
It's a 5-star because this stock has been a best buy now pick for the motley fool on more than one occasion. So of course there will be a gravitational effect from other fools to this stock even if you don't know the business. All you have to do is read the top bull pitch. The person loves the stock just because of the way the company's name is pronounced. I bought into the hype and bought this stock when it was at $18 last year. I'm just hoping I can recover at least half of my losses at this point. The banking sector will not recover any time soon which accounts for the majority of their business. The bank mess along with outside competition will continue to hurt sales and keep this stock down.
Do earnings estimates, or even actual reported earnings for that matter, even mean much these days? Corporate earnings are easy to manipulate.I am surprised at how much traders rely on earnings instead of cash flow and financial position (balance sheet), especially in this economic environment. The companies with strong balance sheets will be the ones able to weather the storm by absorbing losses over multiple quarters.VASCO appears to have strong cash flows and the balance sheet appears strong, at least as of 12/31/08. That's why I rate it 5 stars.
Maybe that's why your score is so low.................................................
It has virtually no debt, they are in the business of data security..The banking system is going to need companies like this with the increased amount of hacking and data insecurity. I bought it because I thought long term, it would be in a core area for all companies that have to protect personal data. It's down from where i got it but long term, I expect it to go back up to the 20-25 range at least...
