Melbourne IT shares soared: It even surprised us

Melbourne IT (ASX: MLB) jumped more than 5 per cent on Wednesday April 4 2012 after The Motley Fool named it as an enticingly attractive stock.

Even we were surprised by the fast price rise, the shares jumping as high was $1.89 not long after we sent out our free Take Stock email.

We never know what will happen to share prices in the short-term.

That’s one reason we like the buying in thirds, an approach we recently introduced to Motley Fool Share Advisor subscribers.

There’s also no right valuation for a company, it always come down to opinions on growth rates and other valuation factors.

Melbourne IT has guided for a 10 per cent rise in EBIT this year. We think they could be being conservative.
