Worked for an hour on a stock suggestion -- and then it went away...Let me try again but do this quickly. NVEC has a number of levels on which it has socially responsible products. Today, its products allow for long-life medical devices because its sprintronics technology is low power. In the future it's technology can provide lab-on-a-chip or biohazard dection. Of most interest to me is their anti-tamper memory -- a way to secure highly sensitive computers and networks (or even individual products) from hackers. How much would Sony pay for that to protect its Playstation network?Alyce will like this: The PEG is .74 at today's $59.43 price. This is the semiconductor company with the highest operating margin: 56.9%. And how is this for small? 4.8 million shares! Small. Profitable. Compelling long-term leading edge technology.http://www.nve.com/index.phpI do not own the stock today. It is on my watch list. But, for a long-term buy-and-hold person, here is a stock that might even make Disney's 50-year performance look less than perfect. Why? Universal memory. The days of putting together multiple chips to make a computer (or cell phone's) memory would be replaced by a single chip. It is non-volatile memory. The power goes off, your TMF board posting is still there. Imagine that! Cell phone compasses much smaller than today, and lower voltage, yet able to not only detect where you are but which way your phone is pointing. Imagine the ad potential there. I could rambel on but the above company link has video and papers that do a better job than me.This is a tiny company. If, and I stress IF, they can get and stay on the leading edge of Magnetoresistive Random Access Memory (MRAM) technology they will be a giant. In sensors, there is the DISPOSABLE devices like lab-on-a-chip which could be another giant market. NVEC is an interesting company that should not disappoint on its positive impact on society.W.D.
