06-26-2017: A Strong Tech Stock with Valuation

Most of the "tech" stocks we see listed have poor valuation. Rudolph Technologies Inc. (RTEC) has been around for quite a while to establish a track record. This Massachusetts-based company supplies testing equipment and software to manufacturers of electronic circuits and equipment. It has been on our review list before, and despite making significant acquisitions in the past, has little or no debt and a much stronger balance sheet than most tech stock companies, as well as possibly better corporate governance and executive remuneration showing concern for shareholders. It has an excellent website descdribing its products.

In the over-inflated "tech world" especially in a market like the one going on now, valuation should be a big concern to any investor. RTEC seems to stand up to that test much better than most other tech stocks even of much larger companies, and appears to be in the "buy and hold" category. A somewhat weak chart pattern is matched by enormous potential growth and stability that can only be offered by a strong balance sheet. This is an NYSE-listed stock (despite the four-letter ticker symbol) that is actively traded and in demand from institutional investors. One should not overlook its potential.

Zenith's Active List of 39 Stocks as of 06/24/2017

(Updated once a week, usually on Saturday except when less than 5 trading days in the week.)

Note: Zenith tries to pick only stocks which are shortable, but sometimes stocks appear afterward on the SEC Regulation SHO list of stocks which are not shortable, which is beyond our control. On some stocks, Zenith may hold more than the number of shares it trades in its inventory. Thus the "short" sale of such a security would technically not be a "short" sale for us and not subject to SEC rules regarding selling securities which are not deliverable. Also, stocks pop on and off the list available for shorting on successive days, so the presence of a stock on the current SHO list doesn't mean it was there at the time it was shorted.
