Beat down by recent earnings misses, but PFCF, sales growth, and insider buying are strong.

BBSI is a rapidly growing HR outsourcing and workers comp firm that was absolutely crushed by the market for a couple of one-time issues. It trades at a significantly cheaper multiple than its main competitors in an industry that has a long runway.

Great valuation (12x forward), short-term growth rate (19% EPS growth expected in 2015) and positive macro-trends (Affordable Care Act driving temp staffing and HR outsourcing) that should drive substantial long-term growth. They have achieved a penetration rate of 2% in their target market in CA. Replicating that success across the US would drive a share price in excess of $170/share.

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.
