You know Ed I like this pick.there's a couple hiccups that probbaly need to be looked into before taking a position
They do have a recent semi-major red flag from their last quarter

Sounds like they took a hit earnings wise and lost a big court case
The thing to really find about is whether that Tax issue is going to be ongoing.

But this sort of blah earnings is true for just about everybody lately. I might wish to wait a quarter to see if this becomes a pattern or if it's a one time deal.

They are little pricey Price/Book wise but since they are still in their grow phase I don't think that's a deal breaker

The one thing I don't know is how their line of business works very well. I would think it would remain in demand in this economy for sales leads would remain stable. But for me personally I'll have to learn about it before investing. Their line of work has a thin operating margin so I'd want to have a better grip on the risks before getting in. My guess is they will be fine for sales.

Unfortunately the technicals look fairly bad, it's in a well defined down channel and it's way below the moving averages. So timing wise if you are into that you might be able to pick a better spot.

excellent suggestion Ed , this one looks like it could be one that could have a lot of promise. Might be a great one to keep ondeck but not go long on just yet.
