comScore Moves Higher on Acquisition

Feb 11 2010

comScore Moves Higher on Acquisition

comScore, an Internet research company, released fourth quarter earnings after the close and beat the street by 4 cents. The stock moved higher today some 14% on the earnings and news that the acquisition of ARSGroup will close in March.

Fourth Quarter Results

comScore earned 21 cents per share in the last quarter of 2009, 18% better than the same quarter a year earlier. Revenue also improved by 7 percent from a year ago period. Forecasts are slightly better than previously with the company somewhat upbeat on corporate spending.

comScore Trade

The stock is trading lower than its growth rate (P/E) and has come down quite a bit prior to today’s rally. Several services are showing quarterly growth rates in the range of 60% – 100%. With the revenue growth rate more in-line with what the company announced last night. The overall picture seems lukewarm for the company and the economy making the optimism today overdone. I think you could make a short-term short position trade when the stock corrects back to near $14 a share.
