Remember---the small business market is growing by leaps and bounds as home based businesses increase expotentially-
Most businesses eventually will buy Quickbooks and will also buy Quicken for their personal finances.
Past users like myself will buy the latest upgrade to be Y2K compliant with the least headaches. This will present a huge growth in software sales for the remainder of this year.
Their Payroll services should also increase by a huge percentage as word of their service offerings in this sector become widespread. Also insurance and banking affiations continue to increase dramatically. All this points to continued groth into the millenium.
With more endeavors into the internet, this stock is a can't lose holding. Yes, we will have some nervous nellies taking profits, but this stock could be the Yahoo of finance. I look for an easy double this year and look for a split very soon to help the stock price.
Hold for the long term. Dont let short term fluctuations cause you to nervously dump this winner.
Don't foget that INTU is going to have a cash horde after they are done selling off XCIT, unless the Internets crash before the sale. With only 60 million shares outstanding, they could buy quite a few shares back or they can make aquisitions. Probably both.
