Battered by BP problem, and hey, the recession is over, right? Right?

Marine seismic data company - "acquisition and processing," as CAPS user Geofiz calls it. Highly levered and at a work-stoppage standstill, apparently, since the Macondo disaster.

So, technically a distressed turnaround play. But any company that helps get oil out of the ground is, to my mind, distressed the way Michael Phelps gets distressed when he dunks his head underwater in the above ground kiddie wading pool. Is he drowning? Or will he inevitably get back above the surface to rise again?

Geofiz thinks he's drowning. Let's see.

This stock is well positioned for earnings and sales growth assuming oil prices stay where they are (in the seventies). The company has loads of cash and management is doing all the right things. It is selling for 0.7 times book and 6 times earnings despite the fact that it is immensely profitable and solvent. I expect a short term pop assuming oil holds steady. Otherwise, I am comfortable treating this as a buy and hold stock.

Solid balance sheet, great cash flow. Way too beaten up at these levels.

I wish that I had picked this one on 3/08, but it's still a good buy at these historic lows. The energy sector is poised for aggressive growth in the future as oil reserves are dwindling vs demand. Which means that new exploration is crucial to keep the wheels of industry turning. I expect that this stock will correct upwards to $30 or above within 2 years.

Very low price but fixed costs are very high. Will sky rocket when things start looking somewhat rosier.

Everything has a price, and it is unbelievably cheap. Good visibility, nice orderbook, huge past sotck price underperformance: you have a garp company for a value price.

Out perform on this seismic data processor. Market has been brutal on this one and while it needs capital to run its business, oil exploration is a need that will only increase

This company is at a low for the last several months and is going to be on the rise soon. They are a solid Seismic Exploration company and Oil Exploration is on the rise due to high oil prices.

This stock has started to find bottom - I am confident holding this stock because the support at $34 is wicked, and the ceiling is finally starting to climb.

I stumbled on a solid indicator - the MA for 200 hours has been a ceiling for the past few weeks - on the July 31st Leap the stock jumped to $40.19, just short of the MA(200) of $40.28. On the Aug. 7th leap it hit $38.28 vs an MA(200) of $38.64, on the 11th it was $37.91 vs. $37.97, and there are a few examples since then.

Today, that line has finally started to flatten out AND the stock jumped it for the first time since June when it opened at $37.14 today (vs. $36.85).

Expect a day or two of reaction but get ready for the recovery ASAP. I'd buy in now because the downside is $2.50 per share at the worst, and I think we're prepping for a test of $40. If that goes well then this stock might see $48 again in the near term.

This guy projects a 10-30% increase with little risk. This guy owns the stock, so this guy is biased.
