Accenture is a high-quality, predictable blue chip so I like to compare it to the S&P 500. It is growing faster than the S&P 500 (which is projected to have negative revenue growth in 2015), it has much higher returns on equity than the S&P 500, and… More

Accenture has been able to grow steadily, without spending much at all to achieve that growth. With an incredibly capital-light business model and very low fixed costs, it should fare well in business cycle downturns as well as boom times. The only sizeable risk is that of a major scandal damaging Accenture's reputation, but the company has done well to date to avoid such problems.

I think this is a way to invest in some of the most exciting technologies in the world without having to pick the winners or the next big thing. Easily understood as a technology consulting and outsourcing company; hands in a bunch of different areas. Accenture benefits from the tailwinds of the innovators in the broad market regardless of which individual companies turn out to be winners. Predictability and consistency. They have increased revenues in 16 of the past 18 years. Cloud, cyber security, social, and mobile account for 40% of their revenue. Excellent management--CEO Pierre Nanterme has a 93% approval rating on Glassdoor. And their client retention rates are off the charts: 97 of their 100 top clients have been clients for the past 10 years.

Current price represents extremely high PE (relative to history) @ 23.45. However, for some reason this is expected to grow fast in 2016 which will bring it down.

I expect ACN to underperform over the next 12 months, but I'll keep the position open on CAPS because long term, I will continue to earn points on this one.
