Machine-vision company Cognex reported its best year ever in 2017, and the company continues to expand sales in key growth areas like logistics and consumer electronics. Cognex's logistics sales -- driven by retail and e-commerce fulfillment needs -- currently represent around 10% of revenue and are expected to grow at 50% per annum.

Meanwhile, its factory automation sales are expected to grow at 20% a year over the long term, boosted by consumer electronics companies (Apple is Cognex's largest customer) adopting machine vision in order to monitor and control automated production.

Another reason to like Cognex comes from its management's ability to expand the total addressable market for its products. Cognex has done a good job expanding sales into logistics and consumer electronics, and there's more growth to come in areas like handheld devices and airport baggage handling.

CGNX is in bear market territory with a product that will continue to revolutionize the way manufacturing is performed. Continue to accumulate when the market creates lower prices.

Cognex's visual machine learning learning products may only be applied to a few industries right now, which leaves them vulnerable to short term orders from only a few companies, but that is sure to change in the future as automation and the need for visual recognition technology becomes more widespread.

Today presents an attractive price to get in. Considering adding to my own portfolio.

Not often you find innovative companies like this trading at a 39 forward P/E. I mean Chipotle is trading at 41 forward P/E!
