  • (1888PressRelease) April 16, 2011 - Raleigh, N.C. - The Technology Stock Advisor, a weekly internet newsletter covering investments in high technology stocks, initiated coverage today on four stocks.

    New Stocks Added to TSA Portfolio:

    Corning Incorporated (GLW)
    CA Technologies (CA)
    Rimage Corporation (RIMG)
    Technical Communications Corporation (TCCO)

    "Our patented stock screening methodology begins by searching for technology companies in nine high technology value chains," said Thomas Vass, the investment advisor to the newsletter.

    The nine technology value chain categories being investigated are:
    1. Chemicals
    2. Precision Instruments
    3. Engine Equipment
    4. Computer and Electronic Equipment
    5. Information Services
    6. Pharmaceuticals
    7. Fertilizer and Chemical Products
    8. Industrial Machinery and Distribution Equipment
    9. Aerospace

    Vass explained that technology companies in the main categories of a value chain trade goods and services with each other in adding value to a product, as a semi-finished good becomes a final finished good or product. Sometimes, companies in this inter-industry trading activity are also called, "supply chain partners."

    "As a result of their trading relationships within their clusters, we suspect that most technology companies in these value chains are prime candidates for product innovation," said Vass.

    "The main idea behind the investment strategy," said Vass, "is to buy the stocks when they are in the early stages of their technology innovation cycle, and then to sell the stock as it begins to reap the advantages of the innovations. We suspect that these innovation cycles last about three years before product obsolescence sets in."

    CA Technologies, together with its subsidiaries, engages in the design, development, marketing, licensing, and support of information technology (IT) management software products that operate on a range of hardware platforms and operating systems.

    Corning Incorporated manufactures and processes specialty glass and ceramics products worldwide. It operates in five segments: Display Technologies, Telecommunications, Environmental Technologies, Specialty Materials, and Life Sciences.

    Rimage Corporation engages in the development, manufacture, and marketing of high-performance digital publishing systems that are used by businesses to produce recordable CD, DVD, and blu-ray discs with customized digital content on an on-demand basis.

    Technical Communications Corporation designs, develops, manufactures, distributes, markets, and sells communication security devices and systems worldwide.
