  • Blucora is a company with exponential growth, trading near a 52-week low.
  • InfoSpace, Monoprice, and TaxAct are their biggest revenue generators.
  • Financials and Valuations are very positive.
  • Competition remains fierce towards all BCOR’s subsidiaries and their products. Recent Acquisition of Discovery Channel’s “HowStuffWorks,” may help lift them out of this dilemma.
  • Being around since 1996, very stable financials and valuations, and backed by > 90% institutional holdings, made me inclined to enter after technical analysis.

With a niche in Bellevue, Washington, Blucora’s (NASDAQ:BCOR) expansion since 1996 has not gone unnoticed. Formerly known as Infospace Inc., BCOR is currently ranked as one of Fortune Magazine’s 100 Fastest Growing Companies. A time-line of growth and management changes can be found in the figure below:
