The stock lost 11.9% as compared to the industry, which gained 17% over the same period. High costs from investments have been hurting j2 Global for quite some time. This is likely to hurt the bottom line in the third quarter quarter. The Zacks Consensus Estimate for the third quarter has been revised downward to the tune of 4.2% in the last 90 days. Detailed results will be out on Nov 2. We are also concerned about the company's high exposure to economic downturn as it has a vast majority of credit-sensitive customers. We are also cautious about the company's high debt levels. However, the company's growth-by-acquisition policy holds promise. We are also impressed by the company's decision announced in August 2017 to hike its quarterly dividend payout by 2.7%. " (10/20/2017)
