I think this housing crunch we are in will bring some extra income their way with all of the refinancing going on and people buying houses at these low prices. This company will be doing plenty of credit checks.

The adoption of semantic web technology will give information providers (such as Equifax) new opportunities to leverage their information assets for profit.

With identity theft on the rise, their Credit Watch program is valuable insurance to protecting your credit score. They bill automatically each year and in my experience have been quick to contact their customers if an anomoly appears on your credit history. The service has been great and I have recommended the service to several friends who have signed up. I adhere to the investing theory of buying stocks in companies you use, like and recommend to others. A relatively low P/E coupled with a recent price dip. I am long on it.

Because of the "Kings of Cash" article in Motley Fool. Didn't even check anything else out. I do know, of course, that they are one of the big three credit reporting agencies and therefore have a constant, secure stream of revenue. Should beat the S&P500.

I've been an owner for a while now. Love the new VantageScore jointly developed with the other credit agencies (a true competitor to the FICO score), and the fundamentals are great. Today's announcement of the purchase of Talx Corp. just solidifies my opinion. This is a long-term hold: Solid industry, wide moat, competitors that are actually allies, solid assets, nice return on equity, yearly dividends... This one will just inch up over the long haul. It's not exciting, but it's a keeper.

This is a Joel Greenblatt ?magic formula? pick. After reading ?The Little Book That Beats the Market,? I was surprised to see how poorly Joel Greenblatt was doing on caps (TrackJGreenblatt) using his investing formula. However, since he repeatedly states in the book that the formula fails often enough that most people will give up on it, and even when it does work it requires buying a stock when it is not favored by the market and holding onto it for a year or more, I figured the way he was being tracked might not be a true indication of how well his ?magic formula? was really performing.

I decided I would track some of the stocks his formula came up with that weren?t being tracked on his caps page. In addition to picking from the stocks selected by magicformulainvesting.com that are not currently being tracked by TMF, I will track all the magic formula stocks I pick for a year. This is because Greenblatt recommends holding stocks for a year or more, but all the stocks being tracked on his page are only being tracked for only 3 weeks.
