Quality Systems"Various risks could impair QSII's key operating segments, causing a revaluation of its shares," Deutsche Bank analysts wrote in a Feb. 17 report. "In particular, we cite the inability of QSII to expand the market due to a limited addressable market opportunity (given that the company doesn't have products to address the large hospital market and doesn't scale down well to the small end of the physician market), the potential for new entrants in the ambulatory market that may alter growth/profit dynamics, and a potential downturn in the macro environment. A potential upside risk is increased spending in the ambulatory market, caused by increased EHR adoption and stable pricing, which would accelerate top-line growth." Forward Annual Dividend Yield: 1.6% Rated "A+ (Buy)" by TheStreet Ratings: The company's third-quarter gross profit margin was about the same as last year. Quality Systems is extremely liquid. Its Quick Ratio is 2.15, which shows that the company can meet its short-term cash needs. In the third quarter, stockholders' net worth increased 33.25% from the prior year. TheStreet Ratings' price target is $49.42. The stock closed Wednesday at $42.82 and has risen 15.76% year to date.
