This is a good company, but current valuation is way too high compared to any growth potential it might have. Expectation is that it will settle back down into the low 40's, at the least.

Hindered by a non-compete which severely handicaps the company. The market for their services isn't growing and hospitals love to cut costs.

Lofty valuation, highly sensitive to weak economy, too dependent on intellectual property, and limited prospects for growth. What's to like?!

Very hidden stock that I found just by accident but they seem poised to really monopolize what is a very niche-market, but it will allow them to maintain a competitive advantage and with almost no required capital investment their profit margins will be through the roof.

While the Corporate Executive Board gets all the attention, their sister company ABC is hanging in there as well. With the same business model, ABC operates in the always-growing healthcare arena. Hidden Gems has touted a number of healthcare support companies in their Watchlist and Tiny Gems section, but ABC has avoided their attention so far. I like this company better than some of the tiny gems picks. Plus, I work at the company.
