mstrlucky74,

You wrote, I am considering buying into one of these companies...Lifelock etc.
Can anyone recommend one? Thanks


LifeLock? As in NYSE:LOCK? Their business model would seem like it should have huge gross margins, with possibly some high fixed overhead. However, their 2013 net profit of $0.15/share vs. sales of $4.04/share makes me think maybe they need to work on their call center costs. Also the company has only been public since 2012. Such a short history makes it impossible to analyze it from a value perspective.

BTW, this board really isn't a very good place to get investment advice.

Oh. You were talking about "buying into" one of these companies, right? Or are you talking about just giving them your hard-earned cash instead?
