My pick is FSLR in the technology sector. The reason is because this Company has developed the leading edge in the solar technology. Keep a look out when the price of oil sour pass US100!
Be sure to post your pick at the Value Investing Forum under the contest thread so that your entry counts.
Vyyo, Inc. (NASD: VYYO)- $3.12
COIN: A NASDAQ US based organic fertilizer stock
The below COIN financials I got from listening to conference:
In the second quarter of 2008 the Woodbridge facility will be converting 250k tons a day but has permits available to operate at full capacity of 500k tons per day. 100k tons brings in $21,200 in fertilizer + $6200 in tipp of revenue, 250k tons a day will bring in $53,000 fertilizer + $15,500 in tipp revenue per day. There are approximately 66 days in a quarter taking away Saturday & Sundays : 66 x $68,500 =$4.52M in revenue per quarter. POT & TNH have between 20%-30% in profit margins so lets give COIN a Profit margin of 15% of $4.52M = 678k profit per qtr. COIN has 4.23M shares outstanding not including any future warrents that could be converted into shares. That equates to .15 eps per qtr with 15% profit margins with Plant at only 50% production capacity. The plant at full capacity will convert 500k tons per day which equals to $1.20 EPS per year. Remember this is based on 15% profit margins, actual could be lower or higher.
