    I found out why PAR cant increase sales dramatically. Shift4 Payments ($FOUR) has a great CEO who knows how to sell and is achieving sales to the customers that PAR should be adding. Shift4's products have many of the features that PAR has, but $FOUR has a great sales team and is winning in the marketplace. Hopefully, $FOUR will buyout PAR and spinoff the government contracting business.

    Savneet Singh has got to go. He got the job because noone else would take it, not because he knew how to run a growing SaaS company. He may have been a good investor, but he is not a great operator. I wish Savneet the best, but its time to hire someone who knows how to operate and grow a large SaaS enterprise.

    June 3rd 2021 - Kiplingers’ 11 Best Tech Stocks for the Rest of 2021

    Tech stocks have struggled in recent months, but analysts are bullish on the growth prospects for these 11 picks.

    One of the 11 mentioned by Kiplinger along with Microsoft, Salesforce, Servicenow, Twilio, Palo Alto Networks, etc. is: PAR Technology which is so undervalued relative to its competition.

    PAR Technology

    Market value: $1.7 billion

    Dividend yield: N/A

    Analyst ratings: 1.0 (Strong Buy)

    PAR Technology (PAR, $67.23) is a "point-of-sale" technology provider that mainly serves restaurants. Some of its top clients at present include Pizza Hut, Taco Bell and Arby's to name a few, but PAR also increasingly does business with retailers and other commercial enterprises.

    The company's growth is in large part thanks to its best-in-class technology that focuses on cashless transactions. These most commonly include debit and credit cards, but its readers also process mobile payments like Apple Pay, PayPal and other solutions. And its systems help integrate mobile app ordering technology into a restaurant or store's financial systems.

    Needless to say, PAR is on the right side of consumer trends – particularly after the coronavirus pandemic accelerated the move away from traditional transactions into digital orders.

    Its revenues have been on a nice uptrend lately, arriving at $214 million in 2020 and expected to grow to $265 million this fiscal year and $318 million the following year. That would represent growth of 24% and 20%, respectively.

    What's more, PAR just took a big leap forward with its recent acquisition of loyalty program provider Punchh that will give it new ways to build deeper relationships with both merchants and their customers.

    Though PAR Technology is still operating at a loss as it invests heavily in growth, investors have a lot to be excited about with sales trends and future expansion plans. And a 165% return for the tech stock in the last 12 months isn't too shabby, either.

    I dont know why everyone is so impressed with this company. They aren't profitable, and consume, instead of produce, cash and have been living this way for many years.

    This dilution and conv debt are perplexing for me... why do this versus sell the defense unit?

    Is this the same PAR we are talking about, "PAR Government Systems Corp., Rome, New York, has been awarded a $490,400,000 ceiling, single award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract with cost-plus-fixed-fee completion and firm-fixed-price type orders for Counter-small Unmanned Aircraft System (C-sUAS) software, hardware, and technical documentation.

    Valuation wise PAR is a very expensive stock and to justify the current price it needs some blockbuster news or event, which doesn't seem to be coming anytime soon.

    Toast's target market is the small restaurant market. This market is extremely competive with many #$%$ companies having the #$%$ systems to handlle these restaurants. This segment also has a high cost of sale as many individual sales and a very high churn rate. PAR is focused on the large Tier 1 and Tier 2 Quick service and Fast Casual restaurant markets. Sales and approval at the corporate level results in hundreds and thousands of sales for corporate own stores and powerful leverage into thousands of franchisees. These are long term sales as the concepts are well established and they only make large capital decisions every 7 to 10 years. in addition, PAR's competition is limited to the older Oracle (Micros) and NCR ( Aloha) systems. PAR's target market also is heavily drive thru dependent and PAR is the strongest in drive thru with all the pieces. PAR is extremely undervalued with Toast possibly going public at a $20B valuation and Lightspeed #$%$ with a current valuation of $9.4B. Also, both these companies are losing many millions of dollars and there is no profitability in near future. PAR's current market cap of $1.6B, is 25 to 30% of what it should be!

    PAR will exceed all analyst estimates for the quarter when they announce. Major backlog in all segments. PAR also getting ready to sell the government business.
