••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Goldman Sachs recently published a report called “The Internet of Things: Making sense of the next mega-trend.” According to Goldman Sachs, the Internet of Things (IoT) is emerging as the third wave in the development of the internet and has the potential to connect ten times as many “things” to the internet by 2020, ranging from bracelets to cars. The recent news release of Cadillac planning on offering a hands-free driving car by 2016 and Goldman Sachs’ report reminded me of the small-cap semiconductor company I found last month using GuruFocus’ All-In-One screener to find small-cap stocks with large growth potential. The stock I am referring to is u-blox Holding AG (XSWX:UBXN, UBLXF). Read more...
