After attending a Red Chip Review Conference, I bought 100 shares of DATM at $26.25. The stock got hit again and fell over 28%. I bought another hundred shares at $19.25.

The company has some interesting products. It is #1 or #2 in all of it major product markets. It provides timing devices for most of the cellular market, such as in base stations. The market for timing devices for computer networks also has good potential.

I see the greatest potential for DATM in the cellular market. Cellular is a relative young industry and has tremendous growth potential. Markets like China and many other underdeveloped countries need to develop their telecommunications infrastructures, and DATM provides a product that will be involved in this development.

Their timing products help control the flow of information in cellular and computer networks to allow for the most efficient flow of information.

The beauty of DATM is that there are tremendous barriers to entry in this industry because of the necessary R&D and specific knowledge about atomic and other types of timing devices. DATM's largest competitor is Hewlett-Packard. But I understand that DATM has superior products to H-P.

Is DATM a takeover possibility for H-P? Who knows. But the future for DATM is bright. Cellular is not slowing down, nor is computer networking. Take advantage of the short-term panic selling.
