SCSC PE and price/Sales is quite low. They do not have an extreme profit margin, but a nice ROE.

They have sustained a 8% revenue growth in the last few quarters. This will probably be a slow grower. With barely 1% insider ownership. I'm hoping that they have enough to keep this company on track.

They have recently had a strong earnings surprise of 23% this last Sept. Hopefully Dec 2014 will be strong as well.

Net Current Asset Value Per Share of $15.30. Currently trading at 183% of that figure. Although Graham wouldn't touch it, other value investors way smarter than me have said that it's pretty safe to buy at 120% of NCAV. I'm going out on a limb with this at 183%, but we shall see.

In the electronics business, customers are conditioned to expect costs to go down. As a result, margins are under constant pressure for ScanSource and they aren't in the driver's seat when it comes to controlling margins. They're a disciplined company with strong management which can mitigate these pressures...up to a point.

This mid-size corp. has performed well over the last five years and will continue to outperform the S&P 500 over the next four. They are in a niche marked of bar code and RF readers and recently added an on line sales tool to their products.

ScanSource, Inc. operates as a wholesale distributor of specialty technology products, providing distribution sales to resellers in the specialty technology markets. Its product line includes Automatic Identification and Data Capture (AIDC), and Point-of-Sale (POS) products. AIDC products comprise of bar code printers, hand-held and fixed-mount laser scanners, mobile and wireless data collection devices, and magnetic stripe readers, whereas POS includes computer-based terminals, monitors, receipt printers, pole displays, keyboards, peripheral equipment, and integrated processing units.

The distribution channel in which ScanSource operates includes, a manufacturer selling to wholesale distributor like ScanSource, who in turn sells it to resellers, who finally sells them to end users. ScanSource enjoys competitive advantage as the other specialty technology distributors, that compete are smaller in size. Specialty technology requires value-added knowledge that ScanSource possesses. Further, its large inventory position allows for a better customer fulfillment and lower costs.

Recently Cisco has added ScanSource to its list of distributors in the U.S. With this relationship, ScanSource resellers will have access to Cisco’s Unified Wireless Network products and solutions. It will offer Cisco wireless solutions including access points, controllers, network management software, security, switching and routing products to their resellers across the United States.

The risk of international expansion, expanding in Latin America and Europe as well as investment in new infrastructure is new to the company. However, investors can take exposure in this stock, given that ScanSource provides with strong, long-term revenue and investment opportunity.
