10 Stocks With Special Dividend Potential

3. Quality Systems (QSII) is a healthcare information systems provider based in Irvine, Calif. The stock is rated a B-plus (Good) by TheStreet Ratings.

Quality Systems last paid a special dividend of a dollar a share in February 2007. The regular quarterly payout is 30 cents a share, for a yield of 2.13% based on Friday's closing price of $56.29.

Net income was $13.1 million, or 45 cents a share, for the fiscal fourth quarter ended March 31, trailing Wall Street's average analysts' estimate of 49 cents a share, but still up 15% from a profit of $11.4 million, or 40 cents a share, in the same period a year earlier. Revenue for the fiscal fourth quarter was $78.5 million, up 19% from last year's equivalent period.

Quality Systems acquired clinical information systems provider Opus Healthcare Solutions on Feb. 10, and announced on June 3 that its NextGen Healthcare division (which now includes Opus) had signed up five critical-access hospitals to implement the company's clinical IS software.

In a report supporting a "Market Perform" or neutral rating on the shares, JPM Securities analyst Constantine Davides cautioned that the company's investments came ahead of the expected sales rise coming from federal stimulus spending. Davides also cited the recent departure of COO Philip Kaplan, who was named to his position just last September. The company didn't provide a reason for Mr. Kaplan's departure.

On a more bullish note, Leerink Swan analyst George Hill has an "Outperform" rating on the shares, and values the stock at between $61 and $65.
