S.A. Advisory E-Mail Update

August 9, 1997

Dear E-mail Subscribers:

In this meno we intend to update our on-line concerning a number of corporate developments and introduce a few new opportunities that investors should consider.

The sudden drop in the Dow during the past few days is obviously healthy and has been created by the recent rise in the long Bond. Rates have gone from 6.22% to almost 6.75%. A few economical re- ports have made investors agitated and given them a reason to lock-in recent gains. We continue to believe that investor interest will stay strong and that eventually the flock will migrate towards the lower second tier and the third tier investment opportunities. BOTTON-LINE: We would sell any stock that appears fully valued relative to historical fundamental valuations.

  1. New Stock Recommendation for investors that favor micro-caps,that is, opportunities the have a market-cap of under $150 million. On August 9, 1997 we informed our 900# investors (1-900-990-0909-ex 192) to purchase shares in ACT-NETWORKS,Inc. ($13.25-nasdaq ANET). We like this situation because it is out-of-favor, under-followed, obscure and has not demonstrated consistant earnings. These are all the right reason why we like it!

Recently, the company has in our opinion tripped-up temporarily and this can be seen by the July 29,1997 earnings release that showed only .01/share income (estimated @.18- so they were way off!)

Reasons why we are recommending ANET:

  1. Has no debt.
  2. As of June 30th the company had $61 million in CASH.
  3. Revenues anticipated to grow by atleast 50% during the next few years.
  4. Earnings have been a weak-link and ofcourse that is one reason why the stock trades close to its 52-wk low.
  5. The company announced on August 1,1997 that a re-purchase program has been approved by the board to purchase up to $ 10 million in stock.
  6. Book Value around $10.07-so only trading at 30% above its stated BK.
  7. With only 9.26 million shares outstanding and a float of only 5.3 million ANET has the potential to rocket if thing begin to gel.
  8. Recently made an aquisition that appears to a excellent strategic fit for future growth in the emerging telephony gateway server market-predicted to grow to over $1.8 billion by the end of 2001.
  9. The high for this stock was $48 during 1996 and $38 during 1997 so we really like the price.
  10. The Company is expected to grow by 50% during the next few years- so an estimated P.E. of 25 for fiscal 98 is not that expensive- (the estimates come in at .45-.50)
  11. We think that this situation has the potential to double from here.

Just remember if everything was perfect this stock would be at $30 Bills instead of $13.25. We alway love what everyone else hates and that is why we are successful.

We will monitor ANET for % gain performance in our 900# portfolio.

As you may recall on August 5th we introduced Computer Devices (CTDVB), the company has recently introduced an Internet product that allows the user the ability to surf-the-net HANDS-FREE. (see last E-mail-dated August 5,1997). As mentioned,the product was being sold in CompUSA,but on August 7,1997 the company announced that BEST BUYS and it's 270 store would also start carrying this product and additional computer chains are anticipated to carry this product as well.. We believe that some- where down-the-line a hardware company could easily bundle this product with other software.. This situation ran to .75 from our initial price of .40.. We think this stock could rocket to $2.00 near term if they keep signing agreements..For a look-see at the product,visit the site, namely,http://www.voisys.com.

This next situation looks very interesting based upon fundamentals!

INOTEK Technologies (NASDAQ-INTK) markets and services instrumentation, process controls, factory automation, and test and measurement equipment. In our opinion the situation is severely undervalued based upon fundamen- tals,totally obscure and is not followed by anyone!

For the 9-months ending Feb 28,1997 sales reached $18 million and income/ share equalled .08 --At present there are only 4.4 million shares out- standing..For the year ending May 31th --which-by-the-way should be released on or about August 11, 1997 we are hearing that sales will reach $ 24 million and earnings will come-in at .12/share..At the present share price of 15/16 INTK trades at 7.8X trailing 12-month P.E.. The current book-value is around $1.35 so INTK trades at a 43% discount to it's stated Book.

With respect to Price-to-Sales--INTK looks extremely cheap as well--a value of .17 -that is, INTK is only trading at 17% of sales --Remember a value of 1 is consider cheap! INTK also has almost no long term debt. The float is only 2.4 million. During the past few years this stock has been form a solid around this area- so we little downside risk.

What we have here is a company that is trading at a P.E. of 7.8, 43% below stated Book, .17 PRS and has no debt.

One has to take a serious look at this situation if your portfolio is geared towards micro-minis that are unknown,obscure,under-followed and totally under-valued.
