Stock Highlight: September 20, 2010
This is a beta product produced by Ascendere Associates LLC ("Ascendere") in which we briefly explore stocks that have caught our attention.
Netezza Corporation (NYSE:NZ, $28.27)
Netezza rose 14.9% to $28.27 following IBM's announcement it intends to purchase the company for $1.7b in order to help grow its analytics businesses; this Associated Press  article provides more details. The company ranks poorly on our relative value on all metrics except Operating Momentum, which seems likely to continue. Trailing 12-monthEBITDA was $10.9m as of January 2010, moving to and $19.5m as of July 2010, with implied consensus forecasts for $27m-$32m as of January 2011. The stock is now trading atmore than 115x and 67x consensus EPS of $0.25 and $0.42 for this calendar year and next. This coupled with low analyst revisions momentum, a stock like this is not going to bepicked up by many quantitative systems.
