Stocks D / Data Broadcasting Corp.

This company is such a strong buy. In looking at their market cap they are worth approximately 300 million. They have a 32 % ownership of CBS Marketwatch that is worth $200 million. If you do the math that puts a value of $100 million on their core business which include eSignal for retail investors, InCite for the institutional market, and CMS, a highly quanititative fixed income analyis system.

The FTAM/IDC merger is going to be a windfall for both companies. DBC gets a tremendous amount of international stock content, municipal data, and US fixed income data while IDC gets a real time stock system. The synergies are almost perfect.

I think Wall Street is missing the real story on this stock.
