04-25-2017: Notice to Readers

Zenith's website will be "frozen" at its present state until approximately Tuesday, May 16th, due to interruptions affecting our staff members. We aplogize for the inconvenience, and will do all in our power to get back actively "on line" by that date. There have been many programming changes affecting other websites upon which we depend, making it difficult or impossible for us to utilize them while maintaining a legacy computer system. Our continuing policy is to try to make our site compatible with all users of operating systems as far back as Windows 98 and Internet Explorer 6, and we deplore the activities of Microsoft and others not to make their operating systems "backward compatible" and abandon former support. Numerous brokers, the Commodities Ressearch Bureau, Bollinger Systems, Yahoo! Finance, to name a few have necessitated their readers to "upgrade" making those sites virtually useless for us until we figure ways to "patch" around them, if any exist. We will continue to prefer and use sites which do not require "upgrades." As companies like Oracle continue to improve "virtual" operating systems, it may be possible for us to eventually to adapt newer systems to older ones, maintain our policy of being accessible by the oldest ones, and defeat once and for all Microsoft's ever-increasing sloppiness in putting out a plethora of new operating systems which many user we have contacted do not see as "improvements" but are simply designed to sell more systems.

04-24-2017: A Food & Beverage Industry Niche Stock May Offer Significant Growth Opportunities

Par Technology Corporation (PAR) is a small-cap stock which has been chugging along for a couple of decades on the NYSE. Recently the stock started soaring as a pickup in earnings indicated a possible growth situation emerging. The stock has a unique niche in the restaurant, food, and beverage industry helping meet food safety and testing standards, developing software of point of sale operations, and the like. It has consistently been attracting more and more fairly large food chain customers, not the least of which is Carl Jr. (CKE) fast food places. It also has an interesting "sideline" doing Dept. of Defense work on intelligence missions for the U.S. Government.

This stock may fall into the category of a "buy and hold" overlooked or turnaround situation. Because of the company's small size, it may not have gotten all the attention it deserved from major research and analyst organizations. Those which have followed it may be unaware of latest prospects developments.

Zenith's Active List of 39 Stocks as of 04/22/2017

(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.
