|Tyler Technologies (TYL) |
Last year, Tyler repurchased 1 million shares at an average price of $10.19. The company has more than 6,000 local governments as clients. And with more than 100,000 potential local governments out there, it has plenty of ammo to move up. First Investors Special Situations, up 21% in 2006, is also a shareholder of Tyler.

As its symbol suggests, Greenfield is the premier site for online surveys. There's no easier-to-access focus group than the millions of consumers online, and Greenfield puts together Internet panels for marketing companies based on what those companies want to research. For instance, if the big car companies want to know how effective their latest ad campaigns are, they go to Greenfield. As the Internet becomes more accepted as a platform for marketing research, Greenfield will continue to grow. The company was successful in 2006, as the chart shows.
