E Daily Stock Pick: Jack Henry & Associates

This week, I'm looking for the third technology sector representative of six for my Ivy portfolio.

That technology sector has nineteen industries ranging from communication equipment, computers, consumer electronics, and contract manufacturing, to health, information technology and services, internet, scientific instruments, software, solar, and all such techno-marvels.

Today I'm reviewing small-cap information technology and services, a firm named Jack Henry & Associates, Inc. Its ticker symbol is JKHY.

Jack Henry & Associates, Inc. is one of the leading providers of core processing systems to domestic banks and credit unions. The company also provides ancillary products, such as Internet banking, check imaging, and remote deposit capture. Jack Henry serves about 1,200 banks and 800 credit unions.

The company's Jack Henry Banking business brand offers SilverLake, a robust IBM Power System primarily designed for commercial-focused banks; CIF 20/20, a system for the community bank market; and Core Director, a Windows-based client/server system.

Its Symitar business brand provides Episys, a robust IBM Power System primarily designed for credit unions; and CruiseNet, a Windows-based client/server system designed primarily for credit unions.

In addition, the company offers electronic payment solutions; purchases and resells hardware systems, including servers, workstations, scanners, and other devices; and provides implementation, training, and support services.

Jack Henry & Associates, Inc. was founded in 1976 and is headquartered in Monett, Missouri.

I use three key data points to gauge the value of any dividend equity-like Jack Henry & Associates, Inc:

(1) Price

(2) Dividends

(3) Returns

Besides those three, several other keys will finally unlock an equity or fund in which to invest.

Those first three primary keys, however, best tell whether a company has made, is making, and will make money.
