Zix is an amazing company. When I came across it, I figured it was another company. But no, Zix had the biggest interest coverage ratio I'd ever seen. That sparked my interest. Zix also has the advantage of being older than their main competitor Trend Micro. I like Zix a lot, and I intend to hold on to it for a while.

You obviously haven't been following zix very closely. Zix is NOT older than their main competitor. SYMANTEC has been around for quite a while. Although SYMANTEC OEMs zix mail, they recently bought PNG, a much bigger rival to zix.

Zix revenues are stagnant. They spin their revenue "growth" by ignoring revenue from a closed venture of last year.
Q-Q this year has been anemic, only 1-2%.

When the patent suit heats up, zix will tank.

This recommendation completely ignores realities.

1. Zix itself says that revenues will decrease this quarter for the first time in history.

2. Zixi P/E at 28 is twice the S&P 500 average

3. Zixi will have to pay unknown royalties going forward in a recent patent settlement. As it was, zixi profits was only .01 per share last quarter

4. Zixi profits rapidly dropping compared to last year

5. Zixi is locked into OEM agreements with industry giants, who can squeeze them anytime they want

6. Email encryption is so dated. It's been around for 20 years, is free on MS outlook and dozens of other systems. All google email accesses are automatically encrypted via https. Demand is dying.

A silly post by a zix shill.
