These companies also have plenty of cash. We take a look at the past five quarters of operating expenses, and then compare the average of those to the company’s short-term investments and most recent cash on hand. A ratio of 1 means that they can cover their average expenses for the quarter without earning any income, assuming they haven’t increased operations. If the ratio is below 1, then they won’t be able to cover their costs.

Institutions, such as hedge funds and pension funds, have bought a significant amount of shares. Because these firms use a lot of money to establish these positions, and often have much more sophisticated market research on hand than Main Street investors, we can assume they have done their due diligence and have good cause to feel bullish about these stocks.
