This company makes money by reporting fraudulent payment for programs like Medicare. This is a huge business, they are not large enough yet to cover all of Medicare, but they have plenty of room to grow and have no direct competition. I expect that the Affordable Care Act (AKA Obamacare) will have the same problem. If this company diverts some resources to this program, they should be able to get an even stronger foothold to expand and handle most contracts in these huge programs.
A statistic : In 2010 the total of fraudulent payments in Medicare and Medicade totaled 70 billion dollars.

The stock carries a strong analyst rating, and recently broke out past its recent resistance point of $32, after two weeks of consolidation in the $31 to $32 range. Wednesday's high volume buying that drove the stock past $32 to $33.63, before its closing at $33.13, suggests buying pressure strong enough to continue driving the stock forward.

The RAND Corporation, a leading health care think tank, estimates the industry could save $162 billion per year through the simple IT upgrades. Switching records from a paper-based system to an electronic one and using bar coding and tracking software will save hospitals time and money, which will also lead to increased efficiency.

And the only way to make these changes is to put more money into health care IT. Last year, health care IT spending by doctors, hospitals, pharmacies, insurers, and the U.S. government totaled about $20 billion. So Obama's $50 billion plan is a significant boost.

Even accounting for a decrease in IT expenditures due to the recession, Obama's plan is enough to drive revenue and earnings to new heights for the sector.

Experiment time... I will pick whatever stocks that are on the cold 5 star list on the last trading day of each month. There is no research involved other what is on the cold 5 star list at the end of each month. Each pick will be for one year. Lets see where this goes...

HMS dominates its field in a way that few small companies can claim. Its only real competition comes from states attempting to do it themselves. Last year HMS bought the only national private competitor, and it continues to make small acquisitions that broaden its offerings. I estimate its total potential market at about $2B, v. 2007E revenue of $144M. HMSY is a prodigious cash generator, and though the multiple is high, so are the barriers to entry.
