13 Hot Stocks Poised to Double, Triple ... Even Quadruple

FARO Technologies (FARO)


Number of Analysts: 6

Average Recommendation: Outperform

Stock Price/Earnings Ratio vs. Industry's: 630.89%

Market Cap: $361 million

Trailing Twelve-Month Operating Margin: 4.8%

Trailing Twelve-Month Revenue: $169.7 million

What's to Like About FARO Technologies Stock: "This company has no debt and about $100 million of cash, so they have about $7 a share in cash," Eric Marshall of the Hodges Fund said in September. "They make capital equipment for precision measurement that uses 3D imaging technology to go out and do computer animated measurements that can then be compared against drawings and so forth in the engineering process. It's used by manufacturers; it's used by the military. Big customers are Boeing (BA), the auto companies and so forth."

"There are about four different types of measurement products that they use -- they're all kind of digital measurement products that tend to be early cyclical. They tend to do really well in the early stages of the business cycle."

"The company stock price has been kind of depressed -- forgotten about. But this is a company that has the potential in an earnings recovery to really see earnings get back to the levels of a few years ago. They're only expected to do 65 cents this year, and $1.20 for next year. And then the following year, beyond that -- I think this is a company that could potentially do $3 or $4 a share; has the ability to grow at a 20+% growth rate due to the fact that there are really new markets being opened up for the type of measurement applications that their products are used for."
