With reasonable valuations and high ROE, this company should outperform the market.

SYNT has an A for financial health and a PEG less than 1 on Morningstar, so it's one of my long picks.

Well, this company has four products they market: Application Outsourcing AO, Knowledge Process Outsourcing KPO, e-Busisness eB and TeamSourcing T. I added those extra letters because if you are going to abbreviate a product to try to get consumers to use those letters then you may as well abbreviate everything.

So, I'm guessing that AO means they outsource their applications. Well, that will save some money. KPO I believe means that out source their knowledge process, so this begs the question, is there anyone at the company that does anything locally.

eB, well, that is where everyone including grandma who found a way to sell a by-product of her pet rabbit farm on the site: GrandmaRabbitPelletFertilizer.com is hoping to make enough money to buy a few lobbyists like Big Petroleum does all the time at the US Capital.

And T, which stands for TeamSourcing. Yes, just when all their products were simple words in a dictionary they had to throw in a new word with a capital S in the middle, like it is some product that everyone will die for. Personally, I like T, but if they get it together, and take apart these two words then I could live with TS as a name for that product. So, team sourcing must be a product where they throw a bunch of nerdy geeks in a room ( hence team) and force them to come up with an solution to charge the customers more money, hence the Source part of that product.

Never-the-less, as investors are not usually interested in the product or how it is produced or marketed, we are interested in the bottom line. So lets look as some bottom lines:

This stock popped up on my computer radar and I was impressed by some of the stuff I saw:

On pe they are not too bad at 15.18, they have a yield of 0.30% which isn't stellar, but a lot of companies do not have any dividends. Their peg at 70.90/51.00% is quite nice. Their earnings to book ratio is quite nice, but because this is a great company, their price to book has increased. On the plus side, they have no Debt so their Debt to Equity Ratio is NA. This will allow them to focus on growing the company, not paying their debtors.

On earnings growth:
Well, most of the analysts are a little fearful. This company has met and most often exceeded the analysts expectations. This is good for the company, but when you look at past growth and estimate future growth from it, I can see why a few analysts probably will not overestimate earning for this company feeling that the law of averages says they may come down some sometime soon and no analyst like updating their resume to walk the street in these economically trying times. So, it is better to underestimate than overestimate because if they come in better, then it is easier to live with a surprise than a disappointment. But if you are into numbers, you will probably see that they have had great historical growth and if they can continue, then you certainly will feel better riding this horse than some nag that crosses the finish line just as sunset.

Income:
All of the numbers on the income sheet look good to me. Gross margin, operating margin, net margin and total revenue growth are as good as most people would like. This is reflective of their last few quarters and their last 4 or 5 annuals. No wonder this stock has become slightly pricey.

Anyway, I would place a bet on this dark horse if I had some big bucks. I'm a small time investor, that just likes to learn, and given what I have seen, I would feel comfortable hold this one for a length of time.

I'll let you do the analysis on the free cash flow. I still need to work that out but if it looks good, then I'm comfortable with this on my Caps page. So, I'm in at 71/sh sell at 100/sh and reanalyze if it falls to 50/sh.

Bharat Desai made himself a billionaire with this company, and the share price has actually done a lot better since he stepped down as CEO. Now Syntel just keeps beating quarter after quarter. If the performance continues, it looks awfully cheap.

quality company. Paying a slight premium on the price, but has the ROE, net margins, earnings growth history, etc so I'm not too concerned.

This is one of my STARZ.
Here is the thought process on this STAR:
a) Divided rate over Zero
b) 3 Year Beta between -5 & +3
c) 15% + Insider ownership
d) No greater than -50% Growth rate for the last 3 years (tough last couple of years so good that insiders are still owning the stocks)
e) Current CAPS rating between 3 Stars & 5 Stars
Open to all Industries and Sectors screened this down to just 250 stocks. I like round numbers. 12 of them I already own through other screening tools. I tend to be somewhat conservative but looking for 3 things at this point in my investing:
1. Stability & Strength
2. Yield and Modest Growth
3. Strong Position within a sector regardless of whether the
entire sector is strong or not. Each sector has to perform to some degree for the whole world economy to function. I am looking for 5 or more years down the road, ROI, and Growth. Not looking for rockets, just stars. This is a Star!!

Undervalued growth stock. EPS of 2.1 coupled with strong revenue growth (22%) and EPS growth (39%!) in a weak economy are strong indicators of potential upside. 0 long term debt. 44% insider stock ownership, plus 31% institutional ownership. Low P/E of 9.1 makes this a strong buy!
