E Daily Stock Pick: The Hackett Group (HCKT)

This week, I'm looking for the fifth industrials representative of eight for my Ivy portfolio. That industrials sector includes twenty-three industries all related to designing, fabricating and servicing stuff we want and use. The industrials industries range from aerospace and defense to waste management with all the transportation, business services, and equipment required in between.

Today I'm reviewing a small-cap business services company named The Hackett Group Inc. Its trading ticker is HCKT.

The Hackett Group Inc is a United States based strategic and technology advisory firm. The company was formerly known as Answerthink, Inc. and changed its name to The Hackett Group, Inc. in 2008. The Hackett Group, Inc. was founded in 1991 and is headquartered in Miami, Florida. The company's offerings include executive advisory programs, benchmarking, business transformation, and technology advisory services.

  • The company's executive and practices advisory programs offer performance metrics, peer-learning opportunities, and practice implementation processes.
  • The benchmarking services help organizations measure and assess internal efficiency and effectiveness.
  • The business transformation programs help customers develop strategies to improve performance.
  • The company's technology advisory services help clients improve decision-making capabilities and deploy software applications.

The Hackett Group generates the majority of its revenue in the United States.

I use three key data points to gauge the value of any dividend equity like The Hackett Group:

(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.
