1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

Guru Investment Theses on Verint Systems Inc

Meridian Funds Comments on Verint Systems - Mar 07, 2016

Verint Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:VRNT) technologies provide collection and analysis of unstructured data including voice, video, email, internet and other data transmissions. Solutions are used for security, interception, surveillance, defense, and customer service and enterprise intelligence. The company is a leader in its markets with competitive advantages derived from a core analytical technology platform that can be applied to different products and end markets. We invested when earnings declined due to significant investment by the company in new products to re-accelerate product development and sales. Verint has been a strong performer for the Contrarian Fund over the 3 years since our original investment. This year the stock has suffered from adverse foreign exchange and cautious guidance due to macro factors. We believe Verint’s end markets remain attractive, and that the company continues to have leading technology and a significant market opportunity for its new cyber-security products. As such we continue to own Verint shares while we confirm this thesis.



From Meridian Contrarian Fund Semi-Annual Shareholder Letter 2016.
