Enough top-performing CAPS members have turned bullish on Adobe Systems
Adobe's Flash platform delivers 80% of the Web video worldwide and is spreading to alternative platforms like netbooks, set-top boxes, and smartphones, with the backing of top chip designers such as Sigma Designs
But Adobe's success goes far beyond Flash: There's much more to like with the company's dominant market share in its other software and portable document applications. Shares have taken a hit recently after some analysts gave pessimistic views, anticipating cutbacks in corporate spending, but many CAPS members see a long-term winner that sits on $2 billion in cash, maintains reasonable levels of debt, and commands solid earnings power. And as the stock has dropped, more bulls have come on board.
To see what the very best CAPS members are saying now about Adobe -- as well as other winning stocks they are picking -- head on over to CAPS and have a look. The community research and resources in CAPS are totally free, unlike analyst opinions reserved for paying clients.
