FactSet provides financial information, combining proprietary databases with third-party content, focusing on institutional clients. The company is very profitable (30+% returns on capital), requires little capital investment, it has no debt, and it generates healthy, growing cash flows. FDS boasts excellent client retention rates, and its product suite is highly-regarded in the industry and is mission-critical for many of its clients. The stock took it on the nose today on downbeat guidance, but I'm bullish on the company long-term.

CAPScall from my blog article "One Simple Stock Screen For Bargain Stocks"
http://beta.fool.com/shawnrobinson/2012/01/31/bargainstocks/1466/

The stock has fallen recently as investors are concerned over the recent decline in subscriber growth, hinting that the company is showing signs of weakness. FDS earns revenue on a per-user basis and any cost-cutting measures conducted by financial institutions is a valid concern. But given that FDS has grown revenue every year since 1996, and has successfully captured market share from their larger rivals Bloomberg and Thomson Reuters, long-term investors should evaluate if the weakness is temporary.

High, flat margin business. Used by many in the financial industry. Growth internationally. Track record of 20% a year growth. Strong free cash flow. Dividend is a plus.

Continuing to take share from Thomson and Bloomberg. Also, Investment banking is finally back and will cease to be a burden on revenues. A little expensive at current levels, but a great long term buy.

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

This stock has seen a 45% run-up since I bought it 12 months ago and is seeing some profit taking at the moment. Since it is efficient relative to it's peers, I expect to see continuing growth for the foreseeable future (notice I did not say "going forward." Can we all find a better phrase?)

Based on my analysis, the fair value of FDS is $75 a share. As of September 27, 2010, the stock was trading at $80.46 and was overvalued by approximately 7%.

My analysis results are consistent with the analyst from Stifel Nicolaus. He recently cut FDS from Buy to Hold. In my opinion, this stock is a short candidate if you believe that a minor correction in S&P 500 is warranted (which I do). Based on the most recent data, FDS had a short interest ratio of 6.75% (2.8 million shares).
