Computer Programs & Systems
Computer Programs & Systems (CPSI - Get Report) is an information technology company that specializes in computerized solutions for the health care industry. Unlike the other stocks in this portfolio, Computer Programs & Systems is a small-capitalization stock and a constituent of the Russell 2000 (RUT). As such, its growth rate is also higher than the aforementioned stocks, with earnings per share rising by 39% in 2011 and expectations for earnings to grow by 15% to 16% in each of the next two years.
With health care costs on the rise, providers will be looking for ways to reduce expenses. What is also intriguing is that the company pays out a dividend of just over 3%, which is more than double the Russell 2000 dividend yield of 1.45%.-- Written by Scott Rothbort in Millburn, N.J.
