Check Point Software Technologies (CHKP) is a leading provider of internet security solutions. CHKP has almost every Fortune 500 company as a customer, unbelievable 50%+ net profit margins, no debt, and $1.3 billion in cash. The forward P/E is 12.78 according to Yahoo Finance.

Finish Line Inc. (FINL) is a growing retailer of sneakers and athletic wear. The company has a long history of sales growth, high insider ownership, no debt, a small dividend (unusual for a company with a $775 million market cap), and an 11.74 forward P/E. Read our original post on Finish Line.

At this writing (Fri. 10AM) , CHKP is down 4.4% on the day due to downgrades and FINL is down 6% on its latest earnings. If you determine that these are only temporary setbacks, you might find these companies interesting. We do.
