It is hard to justify a P/E well ahead of similar stocks when a current stockholder is dumping $162.1 million in a secondary offering. The two aren't necessarily related, but I see a red flag there. And on another note, IHS isn't offering anything tangible that someone else couldn't repackage and offer more attractively. Decision making tools are only useful for those who use those specific types of tools to make their decisions. Energy is hot right now, but as a commodity it is unlikely to stay that way, and then IHS will be left helping companies decide what to do with their useless software.

High Earnings, Low Volume, High Insider Ownership, Nice Profit Margin, High Relative Strength. Dont know much about the company itself but fundamentals are good.
