    FONR - Great buying opportunity

    Beauty! More cash and profits roll in for Fonar. The company is growing and nicely profitable. The financials from the latest 12 months are far higher than prior years both for revenue and for net income.
    I know a boat load of people who have knee or hip issues and need imaging to diagnose their joint problems to recover the normal mobility. FONR is in the right place at the right time.
    The 40% increase in revenue is excellent. Annual revenue is over $68 million now. Net income increased to $13.4 million for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2014 as compared to $10.3 million for the prior fiscal year. Intrinsically, FONR is worth over $120 million. FONR will be over $20 per share and still be undervalued.

    You miss the point. The trend is your friend. Cash flow from operations is now well over $100 million per year. Contracts come in lumps. They are working on some major ones right now. Backlog is still very large. This company continues too expand. It has to be looked at on a long-term basis. It will rise significantly soon.

    Backlog is increasing. NTWK has done the heavy lifting this year. Company doing well. We will likely see a 3X rise in pps in the next 12 months. Cash flow from operations was +$3.3 million for the quarter. Business is picking up. This company is very undervalued while under $8 per share.

    Yes, Fosun is a huge and long-term value investor that helps their portfolio companies expand into increased markets. NATR will surely grow as a result of this new commitment. The company is bringing in strong profits already and is growing. Cash flow from operations is very strong. Net tangible assets are rising to over $117 million. This is a great undiscovered investment. We will likely see NATR double over the next 12 months.

    Hundreds of Chinese companies have already snookered foreign/American investors into buying shares based on false financial information and then posted more false financials. The profits posted on Chinese tax forms in most cases wasn't even close to the false data they posted to non-Chinese investors. The stocks of the bogus companies crashed and the companies refused to let certified auditors investigate. The SEC had delisted hundreds of these companies in the past 4 years. Don't invest in any company that is based in mainland China or you risk learning a costly lesson. China still claims to be immune to SEC enforcement, and mainland China does not have an impartial court system that will protect non-Chinese investors. Beware!
    Beware VIE. This is just like CSKI and the hundreds of other similar scams.

    You are a no-brainer.
    Total Market Cap is $2.07 billion.
    Total Current Assets are $1.698B.
    So, Total Current Assets are *NOT* more than Market Capitalization.

    Total Liabilities are $2.146B, and THAT is more than Market Cap, and
    Total Liabilities are also more than Total Assets.

    Financials for SPRT

    by shrewd_curmudgeon Sep 5, 2014 1:49 PM
    shrewd_curmudgeon shrewd_curmudgeon Sep 5, 2014 1:54 PM Flag

    Enterprise value is only 56 million. SPRT could bring in over 8 million in net income over the next twelve months and likely would see a 50% rise in stock price to $3.60 per share this year (and it would still be very undervalued).

  • shrewd_curmudgeon by shrewd_curmudgeon Sep 5, 2014 1:49 PM Flag

    Nice turnaround seen in SPRT. The company has an excellent balance sheet. Net assets are now over $96 million. SPRT has a number of contracts in progress and is already doing well growing the business with Office Depot and with Comcast.

  • Revenue is essentially double the revenue of the corresponding revenue of the prior year.
    Revenue was $102.0 million !!!
    Earnings were also very strong, beyond estimates.
    EPS was $0.58 for the quarter.
    There will be some selling on news, but AGX will soon be over $50 per share.

  • It is surprising that ISNS has gone up to more than 3X in market cap this week. Yet,the larger, more profitable competitor ITI has barely started to move up.
    ISNS makes video-capable optical and RF imaging equipment for traffic management and monitoring for such locations as intersections, tunnels, bridges for traffic control and makes license plate recognition systems. ISNS makes software that operates these systems. ISNS has 124 employees, had revenue of $26 million, and had net income of -$14 million in the past year.
    ITI makes video-capable optical and RF imaging equipment for traffic management and monitoring for such locations as intersections, tunnels, bridges for traffic control and makes license plate recognition systems. ITI makes software that operates these systems. ITI has 258 employees, had revenue of $62 million, and had net income of +$2.4 million in the past year.
    It is likely we will soon see a 2X rise in ITI.

    This is the real deal. Far higher than usual volume for this traffic industry leader. Many short have not covered yet.

    TAYD seem to be heading back toward growth as the new facilities are ready. Backlog is bigger at $25 million now (about 2X of prior year). This is a great milestone.

  • It is about time that TravelCenters of Americal is over $11 per share.
    The fundamentals for TravelCenters today are better than they were when the stock was at $30 per share. TA has a long ways upward to go upward -- it is still very close to bottom. Enjoy!

    Quarterly Resuls

    SPND is among the best values in the business (although small, they r healthy, growing a lot, and have great margins). I see SPND as very undervalued while it is in the single digit price per sh. There are only 6.9 million shares. I think we will see the move to over $10 per share soon.
    Beautiful.

    I think SPND will be up big over the next few weeks. Business is getting stronger. The slowing of nuclear plants and the delays that SCANA is seeing and the lack of new orders mean for nuclear plants show that that nuclear is no longer competing well with natural gas and oil.
