I am holding my VRTS. The revenues continue to grow, with prediction of 11% to 12% growth next year. Gross margins are 83%, Operating Margins are 25%, with little debt. They are one of the market share leaders in their field. I would love to own a business like that. Also, their trailing P/S ratio is only 4.3.

SYMC continues to grow, and has Gross Margins of 83% and Operating Margins of 32.5%. P/S ratio is 5.34 They are also a market share leader in their field.

I think both these companies are undervalued, making this a good time to buy. Once the merger is completed (this quarter), and the combined company continues to post good numbers, the street will get past its hang-up. Then the stock should be a nice steady grower.

The outlook for the overall market is not good, and every stock is facing a headwind for the forseeable future.
