After spending much of the past year stuck between a two- and three-star rank, LivePerson
With LivePerson's ability to help its customers increase sales conversion rates with its software and services, many CAPS members see solid growth continuing as more customers adopt its platform going forward. The live-chat company has seen improvement in many areas of its business as it swung to a profit and exceeded analyst expectations in the fourth quarter, with revenue growing 26%. And full-year 2009 free cash flow saw a sharp increase over the previous year.
The company already counts major technology companies such as Microsoft
After surviving a harrowing IPO right in the midst of the dot-com meltdown of 2000, shares of LivePerson have plodded along but recently have surged skyward to reach levels not seen in nearly a decade. And as more consumers conduct transactions online, investors still see lots of profit potential in software-as-a-service companies like LivePerson and competitor Art Technology Group
