I wish that I had found this pick on 3/09, but I'm still relatively new to CAPS and members have scored well on this one in the past at higher prices, so I'm not doing to badly. I also like companies that buy back their stock during down times, it's reassuring that they have cash enough to spare and are invested in their own stock.

Instead of paying for permanent staff and permanent facilities, more and more companies are getting lean and mean with downsizing. Companies like Kforce are in the right place at the right time, because they've developed a base of services for the staffers to keep them trained and happy, as well as a reputation with the companies for providing professionals, not crackpots.

Right now they've taken a hit because many of the companies they were supplying personnel to have cut back. As things turn around, the companies that survive and thrive will be the ones that learned to stay lean and mean by using professional temps/contractors.

Kforce Inc is one of the tenth largest professional staffing firms, with 80 offices in 45 markets in the U.S, providing flexible and permanent staffing solutions to its clients in three segments namely, Technology, Finance and Accounting, and Health and Life Sciences. The company’s staffing solutions includes flexible staffing services called Flex, which provides temporary staffing requirements, and search services called Search, providing permanent placement services. Flex and Search comprised 92% and 8% of revenues for nine months ending September 2006.

In the occupational category, as per Bureau of Labor Statistics of the U.S, employment services are expected to be the second fastest growing category with a 3.8 % growth rate annually till 2014, adding nearly 1.6 million jobs. Also more and more companies are seeking to hire workers on a temporary basis for their non-core projects. A tighter labor market and a shift in the employee preferences towards work should push more employers to seek help from temporary staffing experts.

Recently the company acquired Bradson Corporation, which is a provider of finance and accounting professional services to the federal government for the last two decades. This acquisition is strategic, considering Bradson’s topline growth, profitability and earnings visibility. Also it would extend Kforce reach to the attractive government services sector. Endorsing the same, Kforce is now in a better position to garner a healthy share of the $7 billion annual expenditure made by the Government on finance and accounting.

The shares of Kforce are expected to overperform the Standard and Poor’s index, given its focus on specialized end markets and by providing expertise in the areas of temporary skilled workforce in the highly fragmented and under penetrated market.
