Profiting From Earnings

BY Richard Suttmeier | 08/26/05 - 10:37 AM EDT
Stocks in Focus: ZIGO

After you receive this alert, I will be booking profits on 400 shares of Zygo (ZIGO:Nasdaq), which is up 12% this morning and trading around my monthly risky level at $12.09 -- a price level where selling should occur.

Today's strength is in reaction to a better-than-expected earnings report released after the close Thursday, and my model shows that the positive reaction to earnings is now built into this morning's rebound and additional upside might be difficult as the Nasdaq corrects.

The company announced fourth-quarter earnings of 22 cents per share, well above the consensus estimate of 17 cents. For fiscal 2005, the company earned $10.2 million, or 56 cents per share vs. $4.2 million, or 23 cents per share, for fiscal 2004.

This position was added to the model portfolio on July 11 at $10.60, and at $12.09 is up more than 14%.

Regards,

Richard Suttmeier
