On March 25, 2013, GAMCO Investors’ Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Mario Gabelli reduced his Internap Network Services (INAP) position by 0.02%, leaving him with 6,062,667 shares. INAP current share price is $9.39 with a 0% change. Since 1996 Internap Network Services (INAP) has provided high-performance IT technologies and solutions that help businesses transform their IT infrastructure into a competitive advantage. The company sells its managed hosting services at 38 data centers across North America, Europe and the Asia-Pacific region. On March 25, 2013, Benchmark Co. raised its price target on Internap from $8.50 to $12 based on the belief that INAP could benefit from positive industry trends and a shift towards managed hosting and cloud services.

According to GuruFocus, INAP stock price is up 32% year to date. The company has a market cap of $502.5 million; its P/E ratio is 3130.2 with a P/S ratio of 1.8.

Until his latest adjustment, Gabelli’s holding history shows measured increases of INAP since second quarter of 2011.



GuruFocus performed a checkup on the company’s financials and performance data and found four warning signs: Internap Network has a low Piotroski F-Score of 2, which usually implies poor business operation. Also, the company’s asset growth is faster than its revenue growth. Additionally, the INAP price ($9.39) is close to a five-year high of $9.17; the stock’s P/S ratio (1.7013) is close to a five-year high of 1.7013.

Gabelli’s company, GAMCO Investors, lists 792 stocks in a portfolio valued at $13.6 billion, with a quarter-over-quarter turnover at 6 percent. At the end of fourth quarter 2012, GAMCO Investors Inc. (GBL) announced fourth quarter earnings of $17.6 million, and assets under management at $36.4 billion, a record at year-end.
