Candela Corporation (NASDAQ--CLZR)

Candela Corporation, (NASDAQ--CLZR)
Price August 30, 2007-$7.26

This one continues to fall despite an FDA product approval this week and a share buy-back recently announced. Trading at just over 1 times annual sales.

With $2.10 a share in cash (29% of the market cap), 50% margins, a recent FDA approval, a 2.3 million share buy-back, we think this is a good bet for a turnaround.

The daily trading volume has been nearly 236,000 shares.

We think anything under $7.30 is a good price.

CLZR is trading at 63% of our valuation. Pretty cheap for a "medical" company.
