Manufactures high-tech and computerized equipment used in semiconductor manufacturing, cryogenic applications and other life science labs. Founded in Massachusetts in 1978 and now has about 1660 full-time employees working in four manufacturing facilities and eleven customer service centers located around the world. Has a long history of acquiring other companies to expand, or to move in new directions. In the last several years has been acquiring companies in the cryogenics field. Has a large amount of Goodwill on the balance sheet from all of these acquisitions. Did not have any debt on the last 10-Q, but has since established a $200 million term loan for future acquisitions. The trailing twelve month (TTM) earnings of $62.6 million, and the 70.3 million common shares outstanding equates to $0.89 per share, of which $0.40 was distributed in dividends (ratios are 29 trailing p/e and 1.5% dividend yield). Main risks include the cyclical nature of semiconductor manufacturing, technological innovations by competitors, and/or making an unprofitable acquisition. Making a CAPS up-thumb pick after a recent 25% pullback in the stock price.
