We are placing an alert on Super Micro Computer, Inc. (SMCI). The stock is trading at $70.86 a share. The stock is growing at a very rapid pace with over 79% Revenue growth year/year, yet only carries a 9.31 PE Ratio. We like profitable companies with accelerating Revenue growth and that's what we have with Super Micro Computer. The PE Ratio is much lower than its peers. The Company beat 1st Quarter earnings on the top and bottom lines by nice margins and then raised guidance for the 2nd Quarter. On January 18th, management raised guidance again for the 2nd Quarter. In the past couple of days the stock has made a significant pullback with the market. We like this opportunity for short and long term gains. We are adding SMCI to our Long Term Portfolio.
