Taking a look at Broadvision. Looks good so far, just as long as all of my numbers are correct...

Sales up 126.9%
Gross Margins 75% (1998's were 81%)
Net Margins 16% (1998's were 8%)
Cash to Debt 56.9 (1998's was 13.90)
Flow Ratio 0.83 (1998's was 1.24)
CK Margin 17.36% (1998's was -5.5%)

This post got me interested in Broadvision, so I ran the numbers for the most recent 10Q (three months ended March 31, 2000). Speaking of which, when there's only one quarter of data, is it better to go with the previous FY, as the original poster did?

Anyway, the recent numbers:

Sales Growth: 233.1%
Gross Margins: 71.2%
Net Margins: 16.3%
Cash-to-Debt: 50.8
Flow Ratio: 1.50
Cash King: 35.6%

Everything looks good except for the Flow Ratio, which was good for FY '99 and nearly so in FY '98. Quarter info should be coming soon, I'd think, since the quarter ended at the end of June.

Who are the competitors to consider for running a Rule Maker Ranker spreadsheet?
