OCLR: A Penny Stock for Tuesday, 7/28

|Includes:FNSR, Oclaro, Inc. (OCLR), OPXT, VIAV

Dear Fellow Investor,


We do not usually recommend stocks, particularly penny stocks.

But when OCLR closed at $0.57 on Monday 7/27, well below its Entry zone, it prompted us to investigate.    Here is what we found:

ü      Strong Balance Sheet

ü      No Long Term Debt

ü      G and A dropping quarterly, over last 4 quarters

ü      Cash Flow positive 3 of last 4 quarters

ü      Revenue up $66.9 mil vs $41.2 mil quarter over quarter

ü      Gross margin up 25% vs 21% quarter over quarter

ü      12 Month Net Loss $3.1 vs prior year $14.0


What’s not to like?   

ü      OCLR carries a beta of 3.9,

ü      has very significant competitors in JDSU, FNSR, OPXT,

ü      and most significantly, has no earnings.


Given all the above, we still would consider OCLR a Buy for Tuesday at price between $0.61 and $0.57 - - - and we would look to Sell above $0.71, for a gain of 25%.  Note: that Exit zone is certain to change over time.
