With a long history of shareholder value creation, CGI has commanded respect from investors and its industry for many years now.

As a Canadian leader in IT services, this company has successfully grown through organic growth as well as acquisitions.

CGI stock has provided its shareholders with an almost 800% return over the last 10 years. That’s a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 24%!

Solid management and future opportunities can be expected to continue well into the future, as the world increases its drive to become more and more technologically proficient in an attempt to garner all the cost and revenue benefits.

CGI is not a cheap stock, but it is a case where, in my view, we should be happy to pay up for quality.

Organic revenue growth has returned, and while it was only 3% in the latest quarter, considering that it is off a revenue base of $11.5 billion in 2018, it is significant.

We can feel optimistic with regard to future organic growth, as all key indicators, such as backlog and the book-to bill ratio, point to accelerated growth continuing into the future.

In the latest quarter, backlog was $23.3 billion, up $2.2 billion, and the book-to-bill ratio was 102%, or 116% in the trailing 12 months.

Cash flows are huge

In the last five years, the company has grown its free cash flow from $458 million in 2013 to more than $1.1 billion in 2018. That’s a CAGR of 19%!

And the growth is not over yet.

At this point in time, CGI still has a big opportunity to continue along its growth trajectory, with a focus on higher-margin business further increasing the company’s margins over time and the possibility of future acquisitions.

With a stellar balance sheet and a large cash balance, the company is just biding its time as it waits for the right acquisition at the right price.

Forget Apple! Buy This TSX Stock Instead…

There’s something crucial you need to know about Apple’s stock today, especially if you already own it, know someone who does, or have even thought about buying it.

This revolutionary new technology involved in “Project Titan” should make any investor’s ears perk up.

But you may want to consider investing in a TSX-traded company that’s poised to have a drastically larger role in this new tech, and yet is less than 1% the size of Apple.

Discover why we’re especially excited about this tech opportunity for Canadian investors like yourself.
