In conclusion

(Original report

Without doubt there will be a home monitoring tornado that will rip through the health system (see original report). By moving the chronically ill home they will have a better quality of life, reduce the tax burden, free up doctors and nurses and allow health providers to become profitable. Every $1 a US health firm spends on a kit they save $4. Providing you agree that the product is OK ( and it's been with the Mayo clinic for 2 years and exposed to the practical demands of the job for much longer) then everyone will want one - so far US , China , Taiwan but more to come.

As I have described Cyber-Care is probably the only company that can network the home monitoring devices and certainly the only one that thought about using the network intelligence to save money and improve service. It probably has a 1 1/2 year march on any opposition but probably more, approvals, testing and re-testing in hospitals will see to that.

So what do you get for you $400 million company?

Revenues as per the AGM - in Mike Morell states they are well ahead of getting 100,000 units in 3 years.
(see below). But note you can check that they already expect at least 20,000 units by end of 2001 (from the FAQ link)

What does the revenues for a 100,000 EHC look like?

This fast growing company is selling the "other" revenues off and feeding the EHC revenues.
These are high margin revenues, the recurring network license is 3360 - net is 2400 or 71%.
While the EHC units have a 40% markup. However, eventually Cyber-Care will just get a license fee and will have nothing to do with the production.

So these can be applied against the running costs of the company. These are ramping up to handle the expansion. The loss was 8 million for the last 6 months, if we make this 16 million for the year, Then double it to cover the expansion. We have 32 million is expenses. 48 million profits. With a current cap of 400 million I reckon that's a P/E < 10 for 2001.

In conclusion, Cyber Care is a company that has high barriers to entry and high switching costs. These may or may not become Gorilla like but they certainly have a good chance. In the mean time it's selling at an inordinately low P/E for a company which, using the management figures, has a CAGR which will be at least 250%+. Though, during the AGM he hints about more substantial orders so this could still be conservative.

Given that it is a world market that is set to explode. That this is the leader, and I cannot find anything comparable. That it can ask, and get high margins then this should be trading far above it's 6 5/16 dollar cost. It is only here because an obscure health services company bought a small private company and set about selling the unprofitable business off and focusing on this one product. Since then it has contacts with Nortel, the Chinese governments (note they did not get a Chinese discount), Taiwan, Yale and numerous health companies in the US. Happily it is up 600% but as I have discussed I think it's got a long way to go.

OK.. That's it.... If you want to discuss please ask any question whatsoever, on the fool CYBR board... It's awful quite for such a good stock.

Otherwise, I'm back looking at the Metro market.
