Fundamentals: Excellent ROE in last year, no debt, double-digit EPS and sales growth over last 1-, 3-, and 5-year periods
With increasing government complexity in the programs MMS administers (Medicare, health-care reform, health-insurance exchanges) the company's future seems assured. Also, they're not tied down to USA, with branch offices in Canada, Australia, and even Saudi Arabia. Finally, if they continue the recent trend of spliting 2-for-1 every two years (July 2011 and July 2013), they may be splitting again next summer -- which always gives a short-term psychological boost to stock prices.

Did you know that over the last two years (since Nov 2012), MMS has grown earnings faster (75%) than CMG, BWLD, ULTA, PCLN and yes, even UA, but it stills for a far more reasonable PE multiple of 24? PCLN is cheaper than MMS, but rest of the above are more expensive.

Maximus appears to be headed toward continued growth with their newest contract in Canada. While a service company can be especially susceptible to a market downturn, hopefully the focus on government services will continue to provide a solid client base and continued growth.
