NeuStar’s Nifty Numbers Game

NeuStar logoFrom Forbes Investor, a recommendation for those amongst us who are interested in investing in the stock market, and in particular in companies that have some involvement in domain names:
You would think that as the only provider of a set of essential services relied on by thousands of communications service providers (CSPs), NeuStar, also the sole operator of the authoritative registry for the dot-us and dot-biz domains, would hold up fairly well in this weak-handed market, especially when the company has displayed impressive growth in recent periods. Yet the stock has fallen more than 20% since mid-October and ended down 11% for 2007.

However, according to our quantitative model employed by the  Forbes Growth Investor, the stock is due for a rebound.

Demand for NSR’s services has been strong, boosted not only by its legacy number portability business but also from the proliferation of e-commerce (which has increased demand for Ultra Services and its dot-us and dot-biz domains) and strong growth of CSCs, as network clients and marketers find new ways to exploit their use.
