Jack Henry & Associates

The integrated computer systems company reported last month fiscal second-quarter earnings of $38.5 million, or 44 cents a share, an increase from year-ago earnings of $36 million, or 42 cents.

"We are encouraged by JKHY's continued solid organic revenue growth, its growing backlog, and the continued mix shift toward outsourcing and payments," Oppenheimer analysts wrote in a Feb. 1 report. "JKHY trades at a modest premium to peers on an EBITDA basis, although the group trades at cyclically depressed levels, in our view."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 1.3%

Rated "A+ (Buy)" by TheStreet Ratings: The company's second-quarter gross profit margin was basically the same as a year ago.

Jack Henry & Associates has weak liquidity. Its Quick Ratio is 0.83, which demonstrates a lack of ability to meet its short-term cash needs.

In the second quarter, stockholders' net worth increased 15.29% from the prior year.

TheStreet Ratings' price target is $42.99. The stock closed Monday at $34.90 and has increased 3.84% year to date.






Solera Holdings

The car insurance claims software company reported last week fiscal second-quarter earnings of $28.2 million, or 39 cents a share, which fell from year-ago earnings of $30.9 million, or 44 cents.

"This was the first time Solera reported a relationship with a local insurance company," JPMorgan analysts wrote in a Feb. 8 report. " The key local targets have about 70% market share. Solera is training the customers on its software. It's early days, but we think it's an important development. Training could take less than 1 year assuming the build-out continues. China represents the largest global car park, with accident frequency 6x greater than the US market."

Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 0.8%

Rated "B (Buy)" by TheStreet Ratings: The company's second-quarter gross profit margin was about the same as the prior year.

Solera Holdings is extremely liquid. Its Quick Ratio is 2.83, which shows the company can meet its short-term cash needs.

In the second quarter, stockholders' net worth increased 21.39% from the previous year.

TheStreet Ratings' price target is $55.97. The stock closed Monday at $49.32 and has risen 10.73% year to date.
