Stock oversold back near 52 week lows. Management is shareholder friendly with big share buybacks in addition to high return on invested capital and equity (both +20%) and a long runway for growth. Will outperform as long as the economy continues to recover

Feb 21, 2014: trending down at $66, but definitely bouncing off support level. If it retests and drops through, next stop is about $50 and that might be a really great place to buy in in real life.

CAPS start Limit $52

A perfect defensive stock that has a strong moat, being protected from competition by the high price and preposturousness of the services they provide.

This is one of my STARZ.
Here is the thought process on this STAR:
a) Divided rate over Zero
b) 3 Year Beta between -5 & +3
c) 15% + Insider ownership
d) No greater than -50% Growth rate for the last 3 years (tought= last couple of years so goo that insiders are still owning the stocks)
e) Current CAPS rating between 3 Stars & 5 Stars
Open to all Industries and Sectors screened this down to just 250 stocks. I like round numbers. 12 of them I already own through other screening tools. I tend to be somewhat conservative but looking for 3 things at this point in my investing:
1. Stability & Strength
2. Yield and Modest Growth
3. Strong Position within a sector regardless of whether the entire sector is strong or not. Each sector has to perform to some degree for the whole world economy to function. I am looking for 5 or more years down the road, ROI, and Growth.
Not looking for rockets, just stars. This is a Star!!

As companies scramble to make use of new government money and an economy that will be turning around, the quick will need a work force that can mobilize with them. I think BBSI can leverage their short term staffing in this period to long term contracts for the future.

Pretty solid company and payroll services are likely to be in higher demand once jobs start going up.

2-4 yr play.
BBSI could gain for employers looking to staff with contract staff in short term, assuming economic growth and job growth in late 2010/2011.

The only one I'm not actively buying right now as I have a bigger holding already, but the price is nice and they are in a holding pattern with the CA economy stalled. But long term I will buy and hold.
