So, is there something hidden behind Oricon's impressive earnings growth and low P/E ratio? Or is this a hidden gem in the stock market waiting to be discovered?
Let's take a closer look and find out:
Oricon Inc. is a multimedia creation and consulting company that provides a wide range of services to businesses, including the fight against fake news, content dissemination, and customer satisfaction surveys. Their services are designed to help businesses stay ahead of the competition and make informed decisions based on reliable data.
In their fight against fake news, Oricon Inc. provides content widely to web media operated in-house, major portal sites, and media all over Japan. They disseminate the latest information with an overwhelming amount of information, making it difficult for false information to take hold. Additionally, the company provides PR and web marketing consulting that utilizes their editorial skills, information dissemination skills, and media knowledge, as well as the corporate networks of other businesses.
Oricon Inc.'s Customer Satisfaction (CS) survey is another service that businesses can use to make informed decisions. The company conducts their own internet survey targeting companies nationwide to digitize the satisfaction and reliability of various products and services. The survey targets actual service users, and multiple multifaceted evaluation items based on consumer behavior models are set for each service. The company then filters out fraudulent respondents, outliers, and outliers, and only uses high-quality responses to compile rankings. From the data obtained from the customer satisfaction survey, the ranking is calculated using the company's aggregation tool.
Oricon Inc. ensures the reliability and quality of the ranking by supervising by experts and establishing the Survey Guidelines Committee. In addition to evaluating satisfaction, customer satisfaction surveys simultaneously listen to various marketing data such as important points when using services, recommendation intentions, and intention to reuse. The company prepares and provides "research and analysis reports" that can be used to compare competitors, grasp the strengths and weaknesses of each company's services, and clarify issues. These reports are available for purchase on their survey data sales site.
Why is Oricon interesting?
Oricon Inc. is an incredibly interesting company for several reasons. First and foremost, the company has been making boat loads of cash. Over the past five years, the company has been growing at an average of over 19% in earnings each year. This growth has allowed Oricon Inc. to solidify its position as a leader in website design and management and to expand its services to include the fight against fake news and customer satisfaction surveys.
What makes Oricon Inc.'s financial performance even more impressive is that the company still has a P/E (price-to-earnings) ratio of less than 11. This suggests that the company is undervalued by the market, despite its strong growth and profitability. This presents an opportunity for investors looking to get in on a strong and growing company at a reasonable price.
