4 Top Software Stocks To Kick Off 2012

Constant Contact

Share price: $26.07

Canaccord says that 2011 was a "lost year" for the on-demand marketing company, mostly due to a social CRM product being at least six months late.

However, the service is now live, and the analyst firm believes that Constant Contact management will speak about this favorably next month, explaining how they plan to monetize the product.

Shares trade 22 times expected 2012 earnings, and Canaccord believes a few tidbits of good news may result in potential upgrades from research firms that have downgraded Constant Contact.

Should the Social Media CRM product fail to help customer additions or help increase ARPU (average revenue per user), then Canaccord believes shares could fall into the "mid-teens." Its 52 week low is $14.46, set back on July, 29, 2011.

Canaccord sees upside potential over the next six months to $33, approximately 25% higher than where shares are currently trading.

Constant Contact reports earnings on Feb. 2, and analysts polled by Thomson Reuters expect earnings of 24 cents per share on $56.96 million in revenue.

Year-to-date shares have returned 13.44%, but over the past 12 months, shares have lost almost 7%.
