This is one of my STARZ.
Here is the thought process on this STAR:
a) Divided rate over Zero
b) 3 Year Beta between -5 & +3
c) 15% + Insider ownership
d) No greater than -50% Growth rate for the last 3 years (tough last couple of years so good that insiders are still owning the stocks)
e) Current CAPS rating between 3 Stars & 5 Stars
Open to all Industries and Sectors screened this down to just 250 stocks. I like round numbers. 12 of them I already own through other screening tools. I tend to be somewhat conservative but looking for 3 things at this point in my investing:
1. Stability & Strength
2. Yield and Modest Growth
3. Strong Position within a sector regardless of whether the
entire sector is strong or not. Each sector has to perform to some degree for the whole world economy to function. I am looking for 5 or more years down the road, ROI, and Growth. Not looking for rockets, just stars. This is a Star!!

This met a high level screen to indicate a buy and strong outperform against its peers (other tickers in its industry). My 1st version of this spreadsheet devles deep into the company's balnace sheet and recent income statements, combined with other relevant price data for the company including insider/institutional holdings, short interest, debt levels, etc.
Testing capabilities of this 1st version of my automated, valuation spreadhseet matched with my personal criteria and see how it holds up.

Will be a bread winner in soon months. They have great financial backing, and some good production in tow. Ride the wave on this one as far as it takes you!

Yeah, seriously, stop laughing, I am recommending Sycamore Networks long, and for the long-run. Sycamore has a ridiculous amount of cash under its belt, $3.27 in cash to be exact and is trading just 72 cents over that intrinsic cash value at the moment. Revenues are increasing 10-15% per year and earnings look to be heading in the correct direction in 2007 and 2008. They are trading at just 22 times forward earnings which is below the sector average and given the inordinate amount of cash on hand, just 1.17 times book value. I smell a share buyback coming, or a buyout offer.

Sycamore was a high flyer back during the 2000 dot com era but fail to nothing afterwards. However stock has steadily grown revenue, improved margins, and began to turn consistent profits. There recent growth coupled with zero debt and almost $3.50/share in cash makes this a stock with lots of upside potential and limited downside risk.

This is how the company is valued at 3.92 a share:

They have net cash of $915 million, which values their business at $178 million or 64 cents a share. They are expected to earn 13 cents a share this year, giving them a P/E of under 5.

Once the options investigation is through and quarterly reports are produced in timely manner stock should outperform in networking sector.

Sycamore Networks is slowing moving towards (+) net income. Revenue has increased steadily each of the last two financials with a projected big jump in the 2006 books.

Jump on for the ride.

Barely trading for more than cash in it's coffers. Nothing to like about the business, it's all about the cash and the loss carryforwards that could be attractive. They have not burnt through cash over the past 9mths (slightly cash flow positive). Some controversy and a couple of lawsuits surrounding option dating now exist. Might be attractive to an acquirer (who would actually have to be acquired to utilize the losses for taxes me thinks). My attempt at "old school Buffet" not the new and improved version.
