I recently employed SharePad to identify a strong R&D-based business.
The exact SharePad criteria I used were:
- An R&D-to-turnover ratio of 10% or more;
- An operating margin of at least 10%, and;
- Dividend growth for a minimum of five consecutive years.
SharePad returned only four matches.
I selected Craneware because, among those four shares, the company was the largest and offered the longest dividend record.
I was also vaguely aware of the business being renowned for some quality financials.
