    Reading Ben Graham’s Intelligent Investor led me to this stock. Does value investing still work and where can you learn it? Are there careers where you can practice value investing?

    STC's adjusted EPS grew 43% in the third quarter, and this year's EPS is nearly $12. Now P/E is only 5.85 times, and PEG is only 0.13. The target price at the end of this year exceeds $100.

    STC's stock price is severely undervalued. STC's EPS this year(2021) can reach $12. In the past 5 years, the average annual growth rate of EPS has reached 45%. The current STC PEG valuation is only 0.14. Peter Lynch believes that if the PEG is lower than 0.75, it should be strongly bought. When STC's PEG is 0.75, the stock price is $330. But if the average PEG value of the Insurance Property & Casualty in the industry where the PEG is located is 0.96. STC's share price should be $432 . Institutional investors of STC hold more than 95% of the shares. All institutional investors are extremely optimistic about this stock.hey don't sell such a good company, so they don't publish reports.

    Omicron will slow down FED to lower QE. The interest rate increase will also be delayed. These are good news for real estate. The ROE of STC is 30.34%. The valuations of STC's P/E, P/S, P/FCF, and EV/EBITDA are all above $120. The average annual growth rate of EPS in the past 5 years has reached 44.55%, and the current P/E is only 6.4. STC stock prices below $100 are all seriously undervalued.

    The current price drop of STC is obviously very irrational. The current 30-year mortgage rate has reached a 12-year high of 5%. The 30-year mortgage rate of the interest rate hike of previous wave in November 2018 also reached a maximum of 5% . At that time, the P/B of STC was 1.46 and the P/E was 20.6. And now the P/B is only 1.09, and the P/E is only 4.37. Under the same interest rate, the evaluation of STC should not be too different.
    And, the CEO of STC once bought back STC stock sharply at $66 on Mar 15. It would be obviously unwise to sell STC after a 35% drop.

    $STC.V - Beacon Securities raises 12-month target price for the stock in Sangoma Technologies to C$7.00 (was C$4.25), based on the proposed acquisition of Star2Star.

    STC's 4Q EPS was $3.12, YoY grew 40.5%, and the full-year EPS was $11.9, YoY grew 91.3%. Strong performance. The average annual growth rate of EPS over the past five years is 45.1%. Right now the PEG is only 0.135. Peter Lynch once said that PEG at 0.75 should be a strong buy. STC's PEG at 0.75 should be $402. STC stock is severely undervalued.

    The short-term price target must exceed CEO's March 15 bid price of $66.7.

    In the continuous rise, the reasonable stock price is still far away.

    STC's EV/EBITDA is only 3.53 times. The average value of EV/EBITDA in the same industry is 9.75 times. If STC compares the EV/EBITDA of its peers, the value of STC per share is $161.

    Reviewing the buyout:
    "receive merger consideration of $25.00 in cash and 0.6425 shares of FNF Group common stock"

    FNF closed on 2/4/18 at $35.29 *.6425 = $22.67 + $25.00 = $47.67.

    Possible reduction of up to $4.50 if sales of up $225M must be divested.

    STC's 1Q performance was very good, far exceeding market expectations. The housing price-to-income ratio in the United States is only 4 times. According to the STC profit method, the impact of interest rate hikes on STC is not as big as the market thinks. Make a bottom around $50 with P/B of nearly 1.

    I thought it was all made-up stories till I was convinced and gave it a try and honestly I don't regret the move I made because I invested in a big way. Thanks to mr Eric for helping me and my family, you are undoubtedly the best trader we have with sincerity and humbleness, contact him via Tele>gram @Ericromerofx

    JUST MADE A NEW 52 WEEK LOW. Maybe into the 40's next week?
    Seems crazy but for some reason no one loves this stock right now.
    Then again we could all be genius by buying soon to see our money double in next 12-18months

    After this quarter I now see why Josh Brown like STC so much. Finally after this quarter STC may get some love and move up to at least their current low price target of $60. Although I would think analysts will raise targets after this quarter.

    Earnings in and they look fine by me, even with a larger share count.
    Stock has yet to move even a penny.

    Once again, this stock may languish due to disinterest by investment community- BUT, the P/E alone is so compelling, I would think a smart move would be to consisder buyback at such a low P/E multiple.

    Oh well, our BOD is way smarter than I.

    The bottom of STC should be around here, awaiting the latest financial report announcement.

    STC has stood on the pressure line of W, STC can see $69 in June.

    On February 10th, Newsfilter spread the news that seven insiders including the CEO sold a large amount of STC stock is fake news! Check the SEC and no such content.
