Rudolph Technologies Inc.

Solid earnings estimate revision activity makes Rudolph Technologies, Inc. (RTEC) an intriguing choice for investors. Although our reviewed stocks have tended to pile up in the high technology area reducing diversification, there are some choices in that area with too great a potential to resist, and this is one of them. Various possible classifications include computer and technology groups related to semiconductor and electronic material manufacturing support.

The company helps manufacturers of semiconductors, electronic circuits, flat panels and micro circuit packaging manage quality control through testing. Its products are offered throughout the U.S. and Asia while the company is based in Massachusetts. It has a good website describing its products in detail.

The company has been around since 1940 to establish a track record. Since then, it made a number of significant acqusitions to grow quickly.

It has a very strong Zenith Index, suggesting strong balance sheet and fundamentals. It has solid growth potential. Its executives are very modestly compensated suggesting strong corporate governance. It is in the strongest industry group of any in the stock market in terms of recent performance. It is one of the rare stocks with a current to average p/e ratio above 1.0 suggesting it may have been "overlooked." Institutions are net acquirers and Dimensional Fund Advisors is the second most top holder.

The overall Decision Matrix for this stock is a +12 which is much higher than for most of the stocks we have reviewed. The company has less than 600 employees, and annual revenues of only about 1/5 of a billion dollars, but significant growth potential appears to be there from a somewhat diversified line of products within a focused group.

The chart pattern and technicals on the stock look "toppy" and somewhat weak suggesting a better price may be had by waiting a bit to buy in, however past action suggests this is definitely in the "buy and hold" rather than the trader category where by playing that game one might "miss out" altogether. We suggest waiting, but not very long. We have a program that looks for the lowest possible "get in" price based upon previous performance when the stock was in similar past chart pattern, and that would lead us to suggest a 23.80 is about the best price you could hope to do short of a market meltdown of some sort.

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."
