Benefiting from high demand in senior-level searches. Revenues have been climbing strong in all geographic segments with total number of executive searches up a lot in recent months. Near term business prospects look a bit shaky given the uncertainty with the economy and job market. If the economy does recover and not stall demand should continue to rise. Cost cutting efforts have helped the bottom line but compensation costs and bonuses are starting to increase and should decrease margins.

MagicFormula pick. I'm going against the CAPS rating here. Once the economies pick up, profits will too. Buy@28.50 and check in a year.

Basically same pitch as I have for KFY...

HSII belongs to an interesting segment of market because weighing scale of staffing stocks is the same as beauty contest.
If stock market is going down because of fears of recession, the same fear is pervading through board rooms and office cubes across the country.
As a boss, fear of recession makes me less likely to hire someone for my pet project.
Also, it makes me less likely to leave the company because they changed the coffee in kitchen.
Key thing to see here is there need not be a recession for this to happen, just the fear of it is enough.

And staffing stocks will take the brunt till the fear goes away, unless they get ridiculously cheap. P/E of 9 in this environment is not cheap; enticing but not cheap.

This is a staffing company in the middle of a job pullback. After the announcing today of a 4000 job loss, I don't see them outperforming in the near future. There simply isn't the demand for recruiting companies when jobs are being cut.
