O.K. I apologize. I jumped the gun on this one. Just bought 300 shares for my trading account after clearing out LWAY for a 4% loss...this one looks nice to me...a little like EXAC.
Interpore International (BONZ) is "...a medical device company with a complementary combination of spinal implant and orthobiologic technologies" according to money.cnn.com.
Their last quarter results were announced on July 17, 2003, which, according to the NYTimes on the Web, for the second quarter ending June 30, 2003, including a $1.1 million royalty payment from DePuy AcroMed, total revenues were $18.4 million, a 25% increase from the $14.7 million in the same quarter in 2002. Net product sales rose to a record $17.3 million up 18% from $14.7 million in 2002. Net income was $2.4 million or $.13/share compared to $651,000 in 2002 or $.04/diluted share.
Morningstar shows nice sequential revenue growth of $30.2 million in 1998, $38.9 million in 1999, $44.3 million in 2000, $51.3 million in 2001, $58.9 million in 2002....and extrapolating the current quarter should get us into the neighborhood of $70 million for 2003.
Free cash flow, while erratic, has recently turned positive with $4 million in 2000, 0 in 2001, $(12) million in 2002, and $8 million in the trailing twelve months. The assets/liabilities picture looks nice with $11.9 million in cash reported, more than enough to cover the $11.3 million in current liabilities with NO long-term liabilities reported. In addition, BONZ has, per Morningstar.com, an additional $47.7 million in other current assets.
According to Yahoo.com, the market cap is a small $283.0 million with 17.8 million shares outstanding and 15.7 million of them that float. No dividend is reported. According to Yahoo, the p/e is a reasonable 18.56 with a 4.38 price/sales. Return on assets is a strong 19.19%, and return on equity equally impressive at 22.08%. There are 884,000 shares out short as of 8/8/03 per Yahoo representing 2.54 trading days.
I like this stock a lot. Needless to say, because I just moments ago sold my LWAY, although recently purchased, is acting a bit sick....and bot 300 of BONZ in its place.
Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to leave comments here (is that difficult...nobody has left any comments thus far...maybe it is impossible lol)....or drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions, comments, or words of encouragement.
