    In Regards To The Vans

    As far as I'm concerned, DRAD can use horses and buggies at this point to carry out their mobile services if it brings bottom line improvement. I'm not concerned about the aesthetics. I'm concerned strickly with fundamental operational improvement. I think we will see more evidence of it once the next quarterly report is released. Hang in there investors, new CEO Mark Casner and his team are getting the job done for us. Look for more good things to be announced in the quarters ahead.

    Cheers and good investing,

    • Thank you. At least some of us get the point.

      However, to be fair, StockMasterP gave net margin (Yahoo does not provide this stat; you have to calc it manually). CMG's gross margin was 20% for Q1. DRAD's gross margin for Q1 was 23%. Gross margin for DRAD's product segment can reach over 40% according to their last presentation.

      I'm not familair with any restaurants with 40+% margins. Too much competition and food costs. DRAD has a lot of patent protection so a competitor would have to re-invent the wheel. Some have small units also but can't fit them in the back of a taco truck (actually they can; they just can't get them out, and that becomes moot with 1/1/07 legislation requiring tests to be performed in-office). Cardiologists get a taste (pun intended) of DRAD through the DIS segment and buy a unit later. I don't believe they would switch to someone else at that point.

      No position in CMG
      Long DRAD

      P.S.-investments made in DRAD at the same time as CMG's IPO would be slightly better. That said, good luck to everyone, no matter what your pick is.
