Talk Ya Book: A growth stock for your list

Gary Rollo joined Chris Judd’s Talk Ya Book to discuss one of his favourite value picks at the moment, telecom software business Symbio Holdings (ASX:SYM). Symbio is profitable, growing, generates cash flows and is also on 9 times EBITDA which for an industrial stock is cheaper than the market.

  1. Hello Gary: I am a long term holder of Sym (since 2015), and thus have seen its shares up and down in price, but I was never too concerned as I too have always seen it as an innovative little company with a great future, backed up with sound financial management (good cash flow and balance sheet). However, Sym share price has been wilting all year, with the market presumably having doubts about the chances of its execution success, in Asia especially. Then today a negative update sent it down another whopping 38%. I know its tech and tech is out of favour, and price is not the same as value. Is this latest report an indication that prospects have changed, or is this just a temporary setback? Would appreciate your feedback.
