As a sell-side analyst in recent years, I followed L-1 Identity Solutions ( ID), which is involved in a range of ID programs from driver's licenses to facial recognition software. Trouble is, management simply couldn't resist the urge to promise too much. They were one of a number of management teams that had built a reputation for "overpromising and underdelivering."
Know What You Own: Sterman mentions L-1 Identity Services; similar security and protection services companies include Brinks (BCO), Geo Group (GEO) and Checkpoint Systems (CKP). For more on the value of knowing what you own, visit TheStreet.com's
