Paychex, Inc.   (PAYX) 

Background: Paychex, Inc., together with its subsidiaries, provides payroll, human resource, and benefits outsourcing solutions for small to medium-sized businesses in the United States and Germany.

The upcoming fourth-quarter earnings is highly anticipated by hopeful investors expecting an earnings growth report after the market closes on July 1, 2014 .

The Analyst's mean profit appraisal is presently 40 cents a share, a gain of 2 cents (5.3%) from 38 cents during the corresponding quarter last year. The lowest analyst estimate this report is 38 cents per share, and the highest is 42 cents per share.

Paychex distributes $1.4 a year in dividends for a yield of 3.4%.

Once the short interest exceeds 4% and approaches 5% I keep a close eye on the trends. Short sellers are what I consider the smart money and if short sellers get excited about a stock, I quickly lose my enthusiasm.With short interest above 4%, but below 5%, Shareholders may want to scrutinize changes in case short sellers turn up the heat further. Otherwise, the prevailing 4.7% of the float short is relatively meager and not a major concern.
