MDSO: Adding Medidata Solutions to Investing Ideas - 45

Having not been the firm that told you to chase those "Dow Bro 18,000" highs...

Now we're in a position to signal buy on some of our Best Research Ideas. In addition to HOLX, Medidata (MDSO) is on Tom Tobin's Institutional Healthcare Team's Research list.

Medidata Solutions (MDSO) is a cloud-based provider of electronic data capture (EDC) and clinical trial management solutions to the Life Sciences industry.

Our screening process positions MDSO based on a composite ranking of under-performance, low sellside rating, and high short interest.  While we continue to hammer out the details of the tail thesis, on a trend duration, we expect revenue and earnings upside.

We have identified several Key Drivers that point to a material acceleration in application services revenue growth through 1Q15 (0.95 R^2).  

We believe the stock will trade above $65 versus the current price of $47 under our base case scenario, with the potential for higher prices over the next 12-18 months.

We will outline the details in a BlackBook presentation on 1/16 at 1 PM ET.

Buy red, at the low-end of the risk range - sell green, at the high.
