In 2000, we ended a bull market run with what was then called "the tech wreck." Risky tech stocks and the NASDAQ Index collapsed causing some traders to commit suicide by jumping off buildings. A similar situation appears to exist today, with many tech stocks in runaway mode, and right at the very top of the list of industrial performers. Semiconductors, and manufacturers of circuit fabrication equipment are tight at the top of the list. Brooks Automation, Inc. (BRKS) is one of those, coming out of a period of somewhat erratic earnings, but at the trough of a turnaround period according to the CEO where marked profitability will follow as the company establishes itself among fabrication equipment manufacturers.

The financial structure and management look sound to us. The Zenith Index is acceptable. The growth potential is there. The company has been on an acquisition binge to help boost earnings. Standard & Poor's are more reticent as well as Market Grader, our two top researchers, and institutions are net sellers, but Dimensional Fund Advisors is one of the chief among them and it is acquiring.

Tools to support clean wafer environments for fabricating semiconductor circuits are the chief source of revenue, but the company is attempting to diversify into life sciences equipment. Cryogenics is used in both areas, but especially in life sciences. Approximately 20% of revenue is in the life sciences area, but that is where the company is concentrating its expansion efforts, while the other 80% is semiconductor-related.

We did notice that the company presented consistent spectacular earnings growth over the past three years which disagreed with what was reported earlier, and most data services have the company showing a very substantial loss in 2016. The number of acquisitions in the period may have led to pro forma earnings as a revision, but erratic past earnings are a major reason for some major researcher skepticism and refusal to issue "buys." The comany has no debt which goes a long way toward strengthening prospects for better earnings in future.  Marketspace Chart

Channeling Potential

 
The summary below includes a value for `Degree,' which refers on a
scale of 1 to 10 the range of a channel in the period under consi-
deration compared to the total range of price movement. It also looks
for the last closing price to be within the channel, otherwise zeroed.
The `Index' is the `Degree' weighted for volatility.  Generally, the
the higher the index, the more suitable is the stock for trading as
a `rolling stock' between channel high and low points.

"Neurostock" can only track long trades. Therefore its performance, as tracked by itself on stocks which are consistently falling, may not appear as good as it could if each "sell" signal were a "short sale."
