    SatCon Tech Makes Move

    SATC,$SATC Highly-Rated Tech Firm Jumps into the New Year

      We mentioned green energy firm Satcon Technology Corporation (SATC,$SATC) in a Daily Bulletin about one month ago.  Based on data available back in early December, we alerted readers to the stock's high short-term forecast return ranking.  Since then, the stock has been on a tear with a current price of $4.79.  This represents a gain of @20%.  The ticker continues to rank near the top of our universe in short-term forecast figures and the long-term prospects are calculated to be very strong as well.

      ValuEngine has issued a BUY recommendation for Satcon Technology Corporation on Jan. 03, 2011. Based on the information we have gathered and our resulting research, we feel that Satcon Technology Corporation has the probability to OUTPERFORM average market performance for the next year. The company exhibits ATTRACTIVE 5-year annualized return, market valuation and expected EPS growth.

      Based on available data as of Jan. 03, 2011, we believe that SATC should be trading at $7.43. This makes SATC 39.44% undervalued. Fair Value indicates what we believe the stock should be trading at today if the stock market were perfectly efficient and everything traded at its true worth. For SATC, we base this on actual earnings per share (NYSEARCA:EPS) for the previous four quarters of -$0.25, forecasted EPS for the next four quarters of $0.26, and correlations to the 30- year Treasury bond yield of 4.36%.

      Satcon Technology Corporation provides a suite of utility grade power conversion solutions and services for commercial and utility scale renewable energy installations and distributed energy markets in the United States and internationally.
