Hi Dick, thanks for the link. Interesting article. It was a little hard to find though in among the other stuff so, I'll post the snippet about L-3 here for anyone interested:

"Buy L-3 Communications Holdings
L-3 Communications Holdings (LLL, news, msgs) makes the high-tech components for the communications gear required by the modern battle field. For example, the company's high transmission rate, jam-resistant communications components and systems are in use on battlefields in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The Navy's Aegis-class destroyers use L3 Communications voice and data switching systems. Organic revenue growth should be about 15% in 2005 and earnings growth is projected to top that at 19%, but the company could do even better than that.

L-3 Communications has pursued an aggressive acquisition strategy aimed at building up leading positions in significant niche markets in the defense and home land security sectors. Even before the fiscal 2006 budget is approved, L-3 Communications has built up a $4.4 billion backlog of funded orders.

The stock now trades at 22 times 2004 earnings per share (18.5 times projected 2005 earnings per share) and has officially ended its January retreat by crossing above its 50-day moving average. As of February 4, I'm adding the stock to Jubak's Picks with a July target price of $90 a share.
