    I started following "lionstock-aletrs” (Gooogle it - off course without any space or dash in between the words) and their notifications are better than anyone else.

    Employment report showing slowing job growth which isn't so good for these type of stocks.......but the earnings call kind of telegraphed this and thag is partly why the stock price took a hit. Still wouldn't buy yet because the trade war might just cause a recession.

    Now is not the time to be a hero and catch a falling knife. Volume indicates the conviction behind a stock price move, and in this case, the stock went down huge on 8 time higher average daily volume. Institutional investors are voting with their feet......step in front of them and you will get trampled. Closed on lows of day, selling is nowhere near done.

    Last qtr NSP missed with $0.63 cents vs expectations of $1.10. Not only did they missed but they lowered guidance from .$0.81 to $0.50-$0.61 a 25% to 37% lowering. I think the market expected NSP to significantly beat this qtr with the guidance so low. Hence, we're seeing the disappointment. Looking to sell 60 strike puts once the down volume fades. Clearly, this company needs better leadership.

    NINE RATIONAL REASONS TO BUY NSP BELOW $80

    1) P/S of 0.66 much less than PAYX ( 5.1) and other HR companies
    2) P/E oof 12 much less than PAYX ( 23) and other HR companies
    3) Virtually zero debt
    4) PEG of 1.2 much less than PAYX ( 3) and other HR companies
    5) Market cap 2.6B much less than PAYX ( 27B) and other HR companies
    6) Hedge funds crashed the price by 25% to accumulate this cheap NSP
    7) NSP beat both earning and revenues .
    8) CEO says they have a plan to improve results in next quarters
    9) 25% haircut is not justified for slight lower guidance

    This is definitely a long-term play if you buy in now. Will see $100, minimum, one year from now.

    if reinsurance costs are not going to affect their bottom line much as stated in the call, why the heck wouldn't they have had that previously to prevent excessive claims. seems like upper management missed the mark here in a big way.

    HUGE NEWS!!
    HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--February 20, 2020--

    Insperity, Inc. (NYSE: NSP), a leading provider of human resources and business performance solutions for America's best businesses, today announced that its board of directors has approved a 33% increase in its quarterly regular cash dividend from $0.30 to $0.40 per share. The cash dividend will be paid on March 19, 2020 to all stockholders of record as of March 5, 2020.

Purchases may be made from time to time in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions. The company may also adopt Rule 10b5-1 prearranged stock trading plans designed to facilitate Insperity's repurchase of its common stock during times it would not otherwise be in the open market due to self-imposed trading blackout periods or possible possession of material nonpublic information.

    It blows me away that an SP can drop 30% because of one quarter's anomalous results – results that they can’t predict and have no control over. The miss was due primarily to a large uptick in the number of "jumbo" ($250K+) medical events – they reported cardiac and cancer events. I know what just one medical situation can do to the finances of even a big company. One of my 25 direct reports (in a company of 7000 employees) had a premature birth at 22 weeks. It came to over $1M charges.

    The trend tell you all you need to know. Recovery is far away, and small-medium size businesses will be the first to vanish, or substantially erode. Regardless of government infusion, businesses will attempt to remain in business - employment/payroll/benefits, etc will be the last things of consideration. Not going to be a pretty sunset.

    NSP share's price is technically attractive. The RSI index is around 29 which means the stock is nearly oversold. It has recently touched it 200 day moving average and bounced back towards upside trend. Volume of trading has been on average and this means the stock is not under any selling pressure. I hope we see the upside soon.

    Dave... as u are probably aware what analysts think mean squat!! The street decides the value of a stock.... was watching cnbc power lunch today and this analyst had a $191 price target for AAPL and the stock is trading in $300’s... he conceded he was wrong! Analysts are nothing but a bunch of stock manipulators!
