Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Vatalyst]

    Shares are trading around $6.90, against their 52-week trading range of $6.04 to $8.35. At the current market price, the company is capitalized at $74.62 million. Earnings per share for the last year were $1.71, and it paid a dividend of $0.20, yielding 2.90%..

    Evolution Systems is signing customers to its products at quite a pace. Latest is the selection of its Dynamic SIM Allocation solution by a Russian carrier. This follows sign ups in Africa and India. Its strategy of targeting developing economies is starting to pay dividends, and this should lead to increasing dividends for its shareholders. Its operating margin is almost twice that of rival Synchronoss Technologies (SNCR) – 14.3% versus 8.3% – and this is likely to improve further as business development costs turn to sales in the coming months.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    One health care player that insiders are active in here is Hansen Medical (HNSN), which develops, manufactures and markets new generation of medical robotics for accurate positioning, manipulation and stable control of catheters and catheter-based technologies. Insiders are buying this stock into relative weakness, since shares are off by 19.2% so far in 2013.

    Hansen Medical has a market cap of $113 million and an enterprise value of $118 million. This stock trades at a premium valuation, with a price-to-sales of 7.13. Its estimated growth rate for this year is -3%, and for next year it’s pegged at 36.2%. This is not a cash-rich company, since the total cash position on its balance sheet is $21.08 million and its total debt is $29.57 million.

    A beneficial owner just bought 8.1 million shares, or about $9.96 million worth of stock, at $1.23 per share.

    From a technical perspective, HNSN is currently trending above its 50-day and just below is 200-day moving average, which is neutral trendwise. This stock recently spiked up sharply from its low of $1.14 to its recent high of $1.96 a share with big upside volume. Since that move, shares of HNSN have pulled back and started to consolidation between $1.77 and $1.60 a share. This stock is now starting to bounce higher and move within range of triggering a near-term breakout trade.

    If you’re bullish on HNSN, then look for long-biased trades as long as this stock is trending some key near-term support levels at $1.60 to its 50-day at $1.51, and then once it breaks out above some near-term overhead resistance levels at $1.77 to $1.96 a share high volume. Look for a sustained move or close above those levels with volume that hits near or above its three-month average volume of 530,653 shares. If that breakout hits soon, then HNSN will set up to re-test or possibly take out its next major overhead resistance levels at $2.15 to $2.23 a share. Any high-volume move above those levels will then give HNSN a chance to tag $2.50 to $2.75 a share.
