On CAPS, 92% of the 275 members who have rated United Online believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.
Just last week, one of those bulls, hend6, highlighted a few of the stock's positives:
A great dividend yield coupled with a diversified business model and a decent P/E ratio at a low entry price. What's not to like? Earnings aren't particularly impressive, but they're stable. Five year outlook could shrink if this stock gets valued higher and the yield gets pushed down near the 2-3% level. At that point, I would need to see higher earnings to validate holding this one.
Of course, despite its four-star rating, United Online may not be your top choice.
