In our view, travel franchise business Helloworld Limited (ASX: HLO) provided one of the most positive results of the recent reporting season, announcing earnings before interest, tax and depreciation of $25.3 million.

Shares in HLO closed at $4.90 today, up 45% since announcing its results on 25 August 2016. We bought shares in June this year at $2.80 as a research-driven investment.
