Quality is not always easy to come by. The old saying of "You get what you pay for" can be painfully true. Companies, at the global level, are working to ensure their clientele gets good quality on a consistent basis. Good registrars, consultants and quality managers can be worth their weight in gold. Manuals and procedures are written by the consultant, or quality manager, in direct relation to what the company does and how it does it.

The process of formalizing and documenting how a business is run helps many pare down the redundancy that often crops up, minimizes down time due to mechanical breakdowns and streamlines the document process. Amazingly, they are finding this drive for higher quality management procedures is actually benefiting their bottom line.

Many companies have found that their profitability rises as their costs of production go down in direct relation to factors covered in a good Quality Management System. Ensuring proper maintenance of equipment decreases down time and its related costs in lost production, personnel costs not to mention the actual costs of repair.

Lumera Corporation (NASDAQ: LMRA) opening session of stock was at $2.35, down slightly at $0.17 (-6.75%) on volumes of 256,500, to near the 52 week low of $1.61. Plexera (a subsidiary of Lumera), announced implementation of a Quality Management System (QMS) in accordance with ISO 9001:2000 and its accompanying pre-assessment audit. The final registration audit is scheduled for the end of the first quarter of 2008 at which time Plexera anticipates being fully ISO 9001:2000 compliant. Mid January also saw the first shipment of its novel Plexera™K(X)5 analyzer to its Early Access Partner, a pharmaceutical company, who will be evaluating the system as a tool for screening and characterizing antibody libraries.

TriQuint Semiconductor (NASDAQ: TQNT)saw share prices of $4.62 in early trading Monday, down $0.03 or 0.65% with a volume of 886,353, nearing the mid-range of the 52 week numbers of $3.77-$7.08. Millimetre-wave applications are no longer restricted to military and other low volume products due to cost. TriQuint's new TQP13-N process offers a cost effective solution over current processes. Some high frequency applications, such as mobile satellite T.V., WirelessHD™ and Adaptive Cruise Control, can now be manufactured using the TQP13-N technology. Although current ACC global penetration rate is only 1%, Gartner Inc, a research and advisory firm, expects more than half of all new cars to be fitted with ACC or some variant.

CDC Corporation (NASDAQ: CHINA) early trading Monday had stock at $4.14, up slightly ($0.03 or 0.73%) with trading volumes around 905,695, this puts the stock $$0.93 above the previous 52 week low of $3.21. More than 13.4 million gamers are shooting up the screen with CDC Games' 'Special Force' (SF), China's first free-to-play, pay for merchandise FPS (first person shooter). With daily revenue growth averaging 15.1%, Special Force is becoming the top revenue producer for CDC Games according to John Huen, Chief Operating Officer of CDC Games. "Based on current growth rates and increasing popularity of Special Force, it looks like we may have another mega hit, and we expect SF will be a significant revenue contributor going forward. "

After witnessing the recent plunge in the markets influenced by the resource sector, the falling housing slump and employment issues, smart investors and hedge funds are shifting interests into other sectors.

The markets are changing and investors are scared. The Bull Run that we have been use to over the past four years is starting to become more like a stampede in the other direction.

Stock markets are normally volatile, but investors have enjoyed a four-year run of below normal volatility and steady upward movement. Ups and downs, yes. But the Bull Run has been great over the past three to four years and has not ended as abruptly as many have predicted.

But while the end of the Bull Run has been predicted for more than a year, long-term investors shouldn't be worried. Of course, only if you know what you are doing.

First off, don't throw all your eggs into one basket.

Secondly, and most importantly, pick winners that last.

And pick winners that have little effect against the daily ups and downs of the economy.

We've seen oil markets spike, we've seen oil markets fall. We've seen wars, we've seen terrorist attacks. Chances are that the events that occur have a short term impact when you consider the overall factors of a 5-year forecast. We need to learn to take advantage of these economic factors. Think of homeland security.

Most investors -- and unfortunately far too many brokers -- go on a buying spree the minute a rally starts in a particular sector. Correspondingly, they panic at the first sign of a downturn and tend to sell off some great stocks -- right before the dead cat bounces.

But Maybach isn't about day-trading and making money fast. It's about being patient and learning the secret of how to get rich slowly.
