Shares of technology systems provider MICROS Systems, Inc. (MCRS) fell 4.0% in the third quarter due to uncertainty around how iPads could impact sales of point-of-sale (POS) terminals.We believe that MICROS Systems's proprietary hardware offers restaurant customers key advantages, including durability, extended useful life, and best-in-class support. We view iPads as a feasible solution only at the low end of the POS market. MICROS Systems's proprietary software and services are hardware-agnostic, so customers can purchase licenses regardless of the POS terminal being used. (Neal Rosenberg)
