MICROS Systems: A Wide-Moat Market Beater

Ever wonder who makes those high-tech ordering and credit-card transaction machines at your favorite bar or restaurant? Or how about the computers at the front desk of the hotel you just stayed at? Chances are those devices and the software that powers them were developed by MICROS Systems -- a leader in point-of-sale and enterprise software for the restaurant and hospitality industries. Far more than just fancy cash registers, MICROS's machines track customer data, collect and report sales taxes, handle special requests like room service, and even identify potential cost savings in the business. It's no secret why thousands of Starbucks and Yum! Brands restaurants and hotels around the world use MICROS.

In today's video, Matt and Paul discuss MICROS Systems and its market-beating opportunity for investors.
