This afternoon I addedAmerican Reprographics (ARC) to theBarchart Van Meerten Speculative portfolio. They are one of the leading reprographics company in the United States providing business-to-business document management services to the architectural, engineering and construction industry, or AEC industry. It also provides these services to companies in non-AEC industries, such as technology, financial services, retail, entertainment, and food and hospitality that also requires sophisticated document management services.
As the economy recovers document management services will enter a new era of transmittal and retrieval. A company servicing the infrastructure and construction industries should prosper.
The stock hit 16 new highs and appreciated 11.97% in the last month earning a 100% Barchart technical buy signal. The momentum means a 66.40% Relative Strength Index that continues to increase. The stock trades around 8.26 with a 50 day moving average of 7.45.
Wall Street brokerage analyst look for small sales increases of 2.20% but they project an increase in EPS of 137.20% this year and a continued 5 year annual EPS increase of 10.00%.
The CAPS members on Motley Fool think the stock will beat the market by a vote of 587 to 35 with the All Stars in agreement 234 to 11.
