Very interesting technology. Has been trying to get traction in China, which has a big push on to get away from silver-based x-ray and has an incentive for technicians to use the digital system. Had mechanical and collecting debt problems. He has no earnings estimates.

Just announced they're going to raise some capital and he thinks he will be buying some of this issue. Last 2 quarters have actually been better. Thinks the company will survive. They have an imaging product that works and they are making headway in the smaller, cheaper end of the market.

Company has been mismanaged and the stock has been pummelled. Their product is good and well liked. Financially stretched right now and as operators they have not been that good. He would like to add to the position and will be meeting with management. Speculative.

Digital x-rays versus silver film. In the bottom 10% of the database. Had a loss of $0.13 in 06 and analysts are expecting break even in 07 and $0.09 in 08. If so, the 13 P/E and their success in turning the company around would make it very attractive. Wait for 1 or 2 quarters of earnings.

Very good products that allow digital film instead of conventional silver base films to produce x-rays. Company has grown extremely aggressively and historically has had problems getting paid by its customers. Earnings have been chopped by 28% in the last 90 days. Ranks 650 out of 700.

Technology that replaces x-ray film with a CCD so you can capture the image digitally which can be stored on a hard drive and distributed easily. Ranks poorly in his database. P/E is 26 X’s. A good company, but until there is some improvement in sales and earnings, it is not a Buy.

Small health care company that makes digital imagery photography. Starting to get some penetration. Just got a distribution deal with Toshiba. Haven’t been able to deliver quarter after quarter and have had some operational problems but if the product catches on, it could be a double/triple in a very short period of time.

Likes management. In an interesting area where they have carved out a niche for themselves. Probably an acquisition candidate in the next year or two. Would like to see more sustainable traction, generating cash flow/earnings that should be expected. Sales are growing fantastically. A “wait and see” situation for him.

Ranks 598 putting it in the bottom 10%. Earnings estimates have been shaved by about 12% in the last 90 days. Concerns include extremely long day sales outstanding with some of it stretching out well over a year. New CFO will hopefully improve this. Likes the overall long-term trend and will wait for the next earnings report.

Ranks 181 out of 700 in his portfolio. Historically have had trouble getting their customers to pay them. Expected to earn $0.13 in ‘06, up from $0.03 that gives you a 4 X increase in earnings. PE is fairly brisk at 40 X’s. Good opportunity on a 2-year basis but the challenge in the near term is they've got to get out and sell. Expensive.

(A Top Pick Jan30/04.) Expected to earn $0.07 in '05 and $0.13 in '06. At current price it is approximately 21 X P/E. Introduced a new product which has allowed them to move into new markets with less expensive price points and larger than their existing market. Signed a new distribution agreement with the largest Xray distributor in China. Good back log. Still a Buy.
