DSS is a value stock, not a growth purchase. The current stock price is less than half of its intrinsic value. The PEG is 0.4 DSS is exceptionally strong in generating ROA and ROIC (Return on assets and return on investment capital). However, I see their debt is too high currently. This does not concern me right now (although I do keep my eye on that). It is not unusual for a young start-up to carry a bit more debt. The goal is to see that the company decreases the debt, or significantly increases its revenue (preferrably both). DSS must, in my personal opinion, concentrate on revenue generation right now. They appear to be in a product development stage. This should position them nicely (looking forward) but will do little good if they don't increase revenue/decrease debt. This is definately not a short-term holding based on current analysis (IMHO). I am far from giving up on DSS because I think their future is bright. Like all value stocks, time is the key. For those dumping the stock, revisit it periodically and catch it on an upswing after they are out of their start-up stage. You will pay a little more, but you won't need the patience to deal with stagnant periods in stock movement.
