Revenue growth was across all of Korn/Ferry’s major operating segments. Revenue grew 55% from last year, this marks the fourth consecutive quarter of sequential fee growth. Conditions in the labot markets have appeard to start to revover, if managers keep hiring temporary help instead of full time employee’s it could hurt KFY’s sales. KFY has been trying to expand into Europe, they acquired Whitehead Mann, who is the leading exutive search firm in London. Their London office is now the largest in the world. They have a strong cash position right now and have shown the desire to make acquisitions to expand into nine more European contries.

KFY 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.

MFP. This company has zero debt, and enough good management to hold decent returns on investments.

Couple that with the fact that the P/E is at 12, and this company really is a bargain right now.

This is in my Magic portfolio and is characterized by a high ROA and a solid earnings growth to price earnings ratio comparison. i.e. a PEG of about 1. It works as a classic value play.

The downside exposure would be to a general economic slump accompanied by a slowdown in searches and hiring. i.e. a cyclical turn which would be temporary.

KornFerry International, with a presence in 40 countries with over 70 offices, is a premier global provider of executive search, outsourced recruiting and leadership development solutions in the recruitment industry. Its services range from corporate governance and CEO recruitment to executive search, middle-management recruitment and Leadership Development Solutions (LDS). Fee based revenues comprises of 95% of total revenues for the fiscal April 2006.

In many economies the top-level workforce is aging at a very rapid pace and there is a shortage of qualified people to replace them. KFY would be a major beneficiary over others, as it has 37 years of record in top-level recruitments.

The economic upswing combined with the globalization of business and shortage of qualified executives, fuels job growth and hiring. KFY has a leading position in Asia, which is experiencing a secular growth and is also a leading player in the emerging recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) market with its Futurestep division.

The company has been selected as an advisor by Bruce Power, industry leader in nuclear energy, for a period of five years, for its executive and middle-management recruitment and leadership development initiatives. KFY will build a talent pipeline for Bruce Power on a local, national and international basis, and will also work with Bruce Power staff to strengthen the company’s ongoing professional development programs. KFY is well positioned given the tightness in the US labor market, which is particularly pronounced for managers and professionals.

To think KFY will continue its upward climb is to believe that the economy will not go soft or there will be no recession. Boy, I don't feel comfortable with that. The economy and labor market may not soften as much as the worst naysayers think, but I don't believe the positive trend is sustainable. KFY has dipped on weak spots in the past 18 months many times, even when the labor outlook was stronger than it is now. I actually expect KFY to notably dip before the end of the year, but am going long since the timing may not work out for market psychology reasons.
