Have missed their earnings numbers in the past couple of quarters. They have cut enough costs that there should be a nice lift in earnings over the next year or so. Likes the aluminum business in general.

(Past top pick May 6/04. Up 6%.) The big risk with this stock is Intel and how quickly they move in to this market. A good chance they will beat the earnings expectations. Cheap and in a good space.

(Past top pick May 6/04. Up 3%.) Too many unknowns right now. They issued 10 million shares as they want to buy the rest of the wireless from AT&T. Will they be going after microcell?

Restructured and got their costs down but there is some margin pressure in the business. Doesn't expect a quick turnaround.

Hard to justify the stock on a valuation basis. No earnings and no cash generation, however it is a fantastic business to be in. Should have a huge future. Will the volatile.
