I always see folks blasting Intuit with a short-term view. Intuit (like a lot of techs going thru growing pains) is not a great short term investment.
However, do you believe online banking is the way of the future? Do you believe an online investing standard is the future? Chances are, Intuit is the company to take us there. MS saw this and tried to buy the company.
Over the long-term. I think the outlook for Intuit is fine.
as i post on this thread before i am long with INTU and i trade it since MSFT try to buy it for 100 $ per share. Today INTU is doing fine again (> 38). INTU gains about 10 $ in only 8 trading days. Most people on this thread seem to be short and discussing arguments, why this one should be sold very fast. I can't understand this because the company have a good management (i don't agree with DerKomisar); they have an excellent vision (great financial Internet services); The P/E with 21 is not too high for a visionary Internet company.
