  • The Technology Stock Advisor Top Tech Stock for 2010, Servotronics, Announces Record Earnings

    SVT notes that major manufacturers of commercial aircraft have initiated plans to ramp-up production 

    Raleigh N. C. Servotronics (NYSE Amex: SVT ), The Technology Stock Advisor’s top technology stock for 2010, announced record quarterly earnings for the period ending March 31, 2010. 

    Servotronics, Inc. reported a significant increase in net income to $622,000 (or $0.32 per share Basic - $0.29 per share Diluted) on a 4.6% increase in revenues to $7,884,000 for the first quarter ended March 31, 2010 as compared to net income of $125,000 (or $0.06 per share Basic and Diluted) on revenues of $7,538,000 for the comparable period ended March 31, 2009. 

    The company primarily attributes the increase in revenues and net income to a combination of several factors such as increased shipments, product mix, cost containment activities and other recession. The company noted  in its quarterly report that aircraft component suppliers are being advised to increase their manufacturing capabilities to support this forecasted accelerated aircraft production.   

    The Technology Stock Advisor made the selection of SVT on December 22, 2009, when the stock was trading at $9.00 per share. TSA is a competitor in the annual AOL Top Stock Picking Competition. The AOL Money & Finance publication will feature the stock picks from the nation’s top investment advisors from December 24, 2009, to the end of January, 2010. 

    “Our selection of Servotronics as our top pick for 2010 is based upon our patented methodology for investigating technology stocks,” said Thomas Vass, the investment advisor who publishes the online newsletter. (Method of identifying a universe of stocks for inclusion into an investment portfolio. United States Patent  7,251,627,  Vass,  July 31, 2007).  

    We developed a theory of technological innovation using Leontief's theory about input output economics that helps us predict technological investment opportunities,” Vass explained. “Our disciplined methodology has performed well throughout the current financial crisis, and while all investments are risky, we are well satisfied with our method’s investment performance.”

    Vass noted that using the same method, the TSA stock pick of the AOL competition in 2009, Graham Corporation (NYSE:GHM) came in 12th out of 75 money managers nation-wide.
