Radvision Embodies the Jetsons' Vision of the Future (RVSN, HPQ)

Includes: HPQ, RVSN
by: Daniel Andres Jacome

When young, unknown companies abruptly sign major contracts with the US government, it's a good sign.

Shares of Radvision (NASDAQ:RVSN) are up over 60% since we recommended the stock at $12 on September 10:

Israel-based Radvision specializes in video conferencing services and equipment. If The Jetsons are any predictor of what the future will really look like, we should be buying RVSN right now.

In addition, Radvision just struck a deal with the Pentagon, which is revamping its networking systems and included Radvision among the few lucky companies contracted to coordinate the military's communications & IT efforts abroad.

...we were pleasantly startled by Radvision's squeaky clean balance sheet. Radvision has $100M in the bank and no debt. We see revenues topping $70 million this year and jumping to $100 million in 2006. With only four analysts covering the stock and just 20 million shares outstanding, Radvision could pop on even the faintest of news. Trading at just 5X sales (industry trades at 8X sales), Radvision and its growth prospects are too hard to pass up, in other words. We forsee double digit growth and possibly, a takeover deal.

...just this week we learned that Hewlett Packard (NYSE:HPQ) has made a splash in the videoconferencing space vis-a-vis its $500,00 a year Halo system. This could prompt either Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO) or Nortel to snap up a first mover like RVSN. We're upping our price target to $30, based on projected 2006 EPS of $1, a 25 P/E multiple, and $5 a share in cash.

Do anything, but whatever you do, don't sell this stock.
