Solid revenue, rising EPS, good cash flow, recently turned-over debt (that could be fully paid off in 3 years if they needed to). Newly (re?)introduced dividend.

Result of my fundamental-quality screen: high dividend yield, high ROE, some insider ownership, consistently high CAPS rating (4-5 stars over three years).

-Earnings have been going up, consistently
-Price was rather flat before the early year run up and has stayed in that range
-Stock repurchase plan is taking out shares
-$60 is the low end of where this will stay. I'm seeing something ~$75
-Sold off Equiserve holding (and other less than profitable divisions) during the last year, so that will keep earnings lower than last year, but should help the overall bottom line.

DST has a number of private minority-owned subsidiaries that are difficult to value and thus ignored by the market. Once they, and the public securities, are extracted from the overall enterprise value you have a company trading for approximately 10x FCF to equity that is more properly valued at 20x. Seems 75% cheap. Management appears to agree, buying back more that half the float over the past few years in the open market.
