LZR Reports Blow Out Results

A RARE Low Float Small Cap Growth Stock With A Recession Proof Business:

LZR reported Q4 and year end results today. Read Press Release and I predicted the results almost to the dollar (in previous blog posts).

It is almost impossible to find any company with growth these days. Yet for Q4 vs prior year, LZR reported 75% EPS growth, 106% Net Income growth, 54% rev growth (all excluding a one time tax benefit.) They have easy comps for the next next 2-3 quarters, a low float, a business that is growing in a recession and will actually benefit from the Obama administrations policies, and excellent IBD numbers that give it potential for the IBD 100 list if it can make a run over $15. There is potential for more synergies and growth as they integrate their latest acquisition and stand to benefit from hospitals renting more than purchasing in this difficult credit environment.

LZR is a rare growth stock in this environment. It reminds me of PDO, a super-trades winner from 2008. Combine that with a low float and it could be THE small cap stock of 2009, in my opinion. It closed today at $6.51. The 52 Week high is $10.15. I am looking for it to move much higher in the coming weeks.

(As always in this environment, I use mental stops and monitor positions closely due to macroeconomic events that could materially shape the overall market.)

``Emergent Group achieved record fourth quarter and fiscal year 2008 results as our company continued to pursue strategies for growth and expansion,'' said Chairman and CEO Bruce J. Haber. ``We've reported strong performance despite a challenging national economic environment and believe there are additional opportunities to enhance our competitive position in the growing medical technology field. Some of these opportunities are expected to come from our August 2008 acquisition and subsequent integration of the Surgical Services Division of PhotoMedex, Inc.'' This is the first full quarter that includes results generated by the acquisition.

``As we look back on a record year,'' Haber said, ``our company remains focused on these growth strategies:


* Expanding per-procedure rentals of existing medical equipment and
sales of accompanying disposable items in markets covering 16
states.
* Capitalizing on a growing number of medical procedures and upcoming
limits on physician ownership of equipment.
* Identifying and offering new, cost-effective medical technologies
to hospitals and physician groups with the aid of company-trained
technicians.
* Pursuing future acquisitions that expand Emergent's sales and
geographic footprint."

Beyond these strategies, Haber noted that the company may also benefit as some hospitals take greater advantage of equipment rental opportunities to curb their capital expenditures in the challenging economic climate.

Welcome to super-trades.com, blog home of Superman. Purpose of this blog is for me to discuss my trades and stock ideas (As well as opinions and rants on stock market related issues). I will mention the date and price I enter. As far as exits, I always try to take half off when I have some profit and if I believe in the stock, let the rest run further. I always also use mental stop limits, at which time I would exit and minimize any losses. I do not like to give price targets unless I can support them by P/E in some way or by comparison to another stock. I just post stock trades and ideas that I believe will go higher (or lower for shorts) and the reason I believe that. Individuals should have their own strategies for managing profits and losses. My stock picks tend to NOT be daytrades at all and many take time to move. I am not an investment advisor and this blog should not be considered or followed as investment advice.
