    It is time for Elich, Miller, Vaughn, Meeker, etc. to buy shares in BBSI.

    And I'm not talking about a token 1,000 shares each. They need to step up and buy 100,000, 200,000, even 300,000 shares of BBSI in the $40-45 range to show investors they are serious.

    This is ridiculous.

    Mr. Roche,

    I am curious, what was BBSI's response? Have you verbally spoken with either Mr. Elich, Mr. Miller, Mr. Meeker or Cody Slach of Liolios?

    Facts vs. Innuendo

    Edward,

    While part of me thinks they should, another part of me thinks they shouldn't bother because it would sound like they are whining. Serious investors in the stock can (and probably have, or will) do some additional due diligence that will allow them to come to the conclusion that Copperfield's allegations just aren't supported by the facts.

    For example, someone posted the "cooking the books" lawsuit details on seekingalpha, so one can come to a more informed conclusion about the strength of that allegation.

    Two other (albeit somewhat unrelated) notes:

    1) I was quite pleased to see Mat Franco win America's Got Talent. He is very good.
    2) Scotland is going to the polls today. I'm very worried.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • extraordinarypaperclips by extraordinarypaperclips Aug 21, 2014 9:38 AM Flag

    At the current $59.37 stock price, BBSI is trading at a mere 19x the consensus 2014 estimate of $3.10.

    Trinet is at 27x
    Insperity is at 30x
    Even low-growth ADP and Paychex trade at 24x and 23x, respectively.

    BBSI's $59.37 represents a 16x multiple on the company's 2015 consensus estimate of $3.80. This is a huge discount to the average of the four companies cited above (21x).

    BBSI is arguably a better-run company, with greater growth prospects, than any of the others. Therefore, BBSI should, in my opinion, be trading at a substantial premium to the others. However, even if BBSI just trades at 26x the 2014 consensus or 21x the 2015 consensus, BBSI should (and will shortly, in my opinion) trade at $80.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    At the current $56.50 stock price, BBSI is trading at a mere 18x the consensus 2014 estimate of $3.09 (which will undoubtedly go up as a result of this quarter's earnings beat).

    Trinet is at 23x
    Insperity is at 30x
    Even low-growth ADP and Paychex trade at 26x and 23x, respectively.

    BBSI's $56.50 represents a 15x multiple on the company's 2015 consensus estimate of $3.76. This is a huge discount to the average of the four companies cited above (21x).

    BBSI is arguably a better-run company, with greater growth prospects, than any of the others. Therefore, BBSI should, in my opinion, be trading at a substantial premium to the others. However, even if BBSI just trades at 25x the 2014 consensus or 21x the 2015 consensus, BBSI should (and will shortly, in my opinion) trade at $75-80.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
