AEY, Taking ADDvantage of the Triple-Play Convergence

ADDvantage Technologies Group (AMEX: AEY) supplies the cable television industry with a comprehensive line of new and used system-critical network equipment and hardware from manufacturers, including Scientific-Atlanta and Motorola, as well as operating a national network of technical repair centers. ADDvantage operates through its subsidiaries, Tulsat, NCS Industries, ComTech Services, Jones Broadband International, and Broadband Remarketing.

The BULLS Say...

New Cycles, New Markets, Less Sellers. Who benefits as cable companies, telecoms and utilities all battle for the "triple-play"? Regardless of who wins the triple-play battles, the CATV equipment makers and distributors will win the war. New technology and services have started a big equipment upgrade cycle in the U.S. and improving economies in Latin and South America are creating new demand for services and equipment. AEY finished a record FY05 in September and is on pace to beat that by double-digits in FY06, yet the stock is down nearly -50% from $9 highs and trades at a mere 9.4 P/E. Selling pressure from option transactions and 2 sequential declines (Q1/Q2) have pushed AEY to historically low valuations. The market has yet to realize that the seller is done and the last 2 quarters, though down sequentially vs all-time record quarters, were actually double-digit gainers Y/Y. As AEY expands relationships, territories and capabilities, its 2 best quarters may be ahead.

The BEARS Say...

More Selling Could Break Key Support. Hopefully the big block selling is finished, but that was all spawned from the two leaders of AEY, the Chymiak brothers. Nothing wrong with insider diversification, but worth noting. Any negative news or more selling could cause AEY to lose this very important support level.

About the Small-Cap ClipReport

Most small-cap newsletters just tout stocks. Instead, the ClipReport provides a comprehensive, journalistic view of each day's small-cap action. This nightly, 10-page PDF email consolidates actionable information and analysis covering the world of stocks below a $500 million marketcap threshold. Starting with "Page One," Knobias breaks down one of the week's most interesting topics in the small-cap universe. The remaining 9 pages provide users with each day's top stories, news movers, strong closers, after-hours events, earnings, corporate actions, PIPE deals, Reg SHO stocks and symbol/name changes. The ClipReport is a daily "must-read" for every small- and micro-cap investor.

About the Weekly SPOT

Each week, Knobias scours the small-cap universe to find overlooked companies with sound fundamentals and one or more growth catalyst on the horizon. This search typically features a small-cap stock exhibiting strong growth while undervalued relative to public peers. SPOT selections tend to be "under-priced" due to lack of coverage or a failure for the marketplace to fully understand "the story." SPOT companies must meet the same basic criteria as our Small-Cap ClipReport, i.e. under $500M marketcap...banks, ETFs, funds and utilities are excluded. Furthermore, SPOT selections must be fundamentally sound with growth, profitability (or near) and clear prospects for price appreciation. Knobias is never compensated for SPOT selections, and NO position will be held in SPOT stocks by Knobias, its management or staff while the stock is being highlighted.
