This firm designs, manufactures, and sells devices that enable the "industry-best" efficient and accurate measurement of physical dimensions for quality control feedback. Another significant use is in the reverse-engineering of competitive products.

* High technology company
* Customer industries like automatives and heavy equipments are in deep trouble in the short-term but should bounce back as global economic recovery continues
* Management has always struggled to contain costs and margins are not particularly stable but revenue growth should eventually be the primary story with this baby

FARO develops and markets portable 3D measurement technology to reduce customer lead times, rework and scrap. FARO's extensive customer list includes Airbus, Boeing, BMW, Johnson Controls, John Deere, Daimler, Volkswagen, Miele, Cargobull, Caterpillar, ABB, MAN, Goodyear, SKF and Siemens.

FARO is currently trading at a P/E half it's growth rate of 20%. It has had 25 consecutive profitable quarters, is cash rich with no debt and is not dependent on any one or a few customers to generate revenue. It has significantly increased sales globally and has positioned itself well to take advantage of a highly under penetrated market.

Given the deep economic downturn we're currently experiencing there will be many challenges for FARO to navigate. However, this cash rich company is not vulnerable to the demise of any one customer, has a globally diverse customer base and develops products that provide cost savings for its customers. I anticipate that as we come out of this recession, FARO will experience a better deal closure rate, as customers keen to increase efficiency and save costs will buy their products.

Experiment time... I will pick whatever stocks that are on the cold 5 star list on the last trading day of each month. There is no research involved other what is on the cold 5 star list at the end of each month. Each pick will be for one year. Lets see where this goes...

Trailing of 23 and forward of 15 for a high growth tech stock is excellent. They missed in their last earnings, but they didn't really. They didn't change the guidance for the year at all, yet the market took it down from 36 dollars to 26. That's an enormous drop for a company that kept their yearly guidance the same. Great opportunity to get in on a company that dominates its competition. In fact there is only one other company in the competition for a company that feels it has tapped only 5% percent of the potential market for their product.

Operating costs were up due to purchasing of new nd better equipment, and their CAD market segment should increase due to stronger building demand.

Even though the pace of construction is bound to slow down in US due to a slump in economy as we see it now, the accelerated speed of construction and development in rest of the world should allow plenty of opportunity for this company to sell its services, soaring its value.
