This is a real-life holding of mine through my investment club.

Sales have grown at an annual compound rate of 17% since 2009. EPS has grown at an annual compound rate of 23% since 2008. The pre-tax profit margin has hovered around 20% over the past 3 years, so pretty decent. The earned-on-equity has fluctuated around 34% over the past 3 years. Again, decent. The company has no debt. The P/E is at the high end of the range over the past 4 years, so a little expensive here. The PEG ratio is quite high, at 1.73. The company does not pay a dividend.

The company's valuation is a little stretched, but I still think the stock could return about 15% annually over the next few years. That is what I am hoping for anyway. With a little luck, I can achieve that goal.

Almost unlimited potential. More and more government entities are going to start doing business online. Would you rather wait 4 hours at the DMV to renew your license or do it in 5 minutes on line? Enough said ;-)

A lot of members on the scorecard picked this stock to outperform at 6 to 7 dollars and have done well with it. So at $5.37 its a bargain, plus I believe that eGovernment is a growing market and an overall good idea. If electronic health records can greatly improve efficiency in health care what could a company like this do to improve our govts?

No matter what color the state is, chances are it will want to tighten up the financial purse strings in the future. Part of this will involve increasing internet-based documentation and services. These guys will be there every step of the way.

They seam to be the only provider of government portals with a profit-sharing billing method. As the internet continues to proliferate, once crowded, inefficient bureaucracies will be a thing of the past. Yes, other companies are in the same business, but EGOV is really lining up the contracts and renewals.

I think we could see a small price correction from the current level above $8, but the long-term trend is up.

NIC provides internet portals for state and local governments in the US. Their ratios compare favorably with other companies in the internet content industry. For example, NIC's p/e is 38 vs industry average of 70. Earnings growth expectation for the forseeable future is about 12% vs industry average of -0.12%. So, by comparison to their industry, they are well positioned for the intermediate future. Here's the problem: This Industry Stinks. Stinky expectations in a stinky industry still look (almost) ok.

I tend to always go back to the old Fool Ratio: PEG. It asks how much are you willing to pay for future growth? A PEG of less than 1 is considered a value company. This company has a PEG of somewhere around 3. I don't want to own this industry and this company is no exception.

This company came to my attention from a CAPS screener. I chose five star small cap companies with significant insider ownership and unanimous all-star outperforms. See my blog on my CAPS page for other companies from this screener.

Tell me when the government is going to give up using the internet. Everything is going the way of the internet...so everything will go through the roof for this company. Look for $8.00+ by the end of the month.
