Was that a trailing P/E or a P/E based upon this year's earnings consensus?

Either way, the stock sounds attractive. I just received a packet of investment info from KVH, and I probably will wind up buying some next week.

Happy investing.

Marc, Could you publish some of the other companies in the ranking?


I have been doing a lot of reading lately on the aerospace insdustry and have come across a few companies worth doing more research. Some of these companies are privately held while others are quite unwilling to release much info . Perhaps some of this is the result of their strong links with the army or NASA.

I am especially interested in the small satellite manufacturing companies.

I experienced no problem at all receiving investment information from KVH Industries. You can write to them via S-Mail, or e-mail from their web site.

Happy investing.

Robert, I was referring to a trailing PE. After today's rise in price,
it is up to 20.

Stephan, unfortunately I can't get a list of all the companies in a
particular area because I am not a subscriber of ZACKS. However, they
offer free research of individual companies if you know the ticker
symbol.

WWW.ZACKS.COM - then go to free research and company results.

The P/E based upon this years consensus estimate of $0.43 is 17.7. This P/E is well below the consensus long term growth rate of 33%. IMHO, this stock should have a current P/E of at least 30, given the high growth rate.

We all knew this was slated for current quarter, but it's nice to see it in print anyway:

KVH's Tracphone(R) 50 First Available Inmarsat-3 Global Marine Antenna

September 9, 1997 08:14 AM

MIDDLETOWN, R.I., Sept. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Tracphone(R) 50, the newest marine antenna from KVH Industries KVHI , has been approved by Inmarsat(TM) to use its latest generation of satellites for two-way fax, voice and data transmission. Inmarsat, a consortium of 79 member countries and the only global mobile satellite communications provider, supports more than 60,000 users worldwide. KVH designed Tracphone 50 to work with the Inmarsat-3 constellation, the consortium's new mini-M satellites, in providing reliable communications at sea or in coastal waters. Tracphone 50 is one of the smallest, least expensive stabilized satellite antennas in the world, and the first one approved by Inmarsat that is immediately available to commercial and pleasure mariners for mini-M communications.

"Inmarsat's approval of Tracphone 50 is an important step towards realizing our goal of making worldwide, secure communications accessible and affordable to a broad range of mariners and other mobile users," said Martin Kits van Heyningen, KVH president and CEO. "This approval augments a marketing agreement we have with PTT Telecom's Station 12, an Inmarsat service provider that is a member of the Netherlands-based KPN Group. It also enhances KVH's position as a leading supplier of marine communications equipment."

To ensure Tracphone 50 met its technical standards, Inmarsat participated in recent sea trials conducted by KVH. Even when subjected to extreme navigational maneuvers during the trials, the KVH system provided the high- quality digital voice, fax and data transmission that is critical for worldwide marine satellite phones commonly exposed to severe sea and weather conditions.

A key feature of Tracphone 50 is its ability to maintain focus on Inmarsat-3 satellites even while a vessel is experiencing pitch, roll and yaw up to a 45-degree range. KVH accomplished this by designing internal rate gyros and a compass that measure and compensate for vessel motion. Signals from the four recently launched mini-M satellites that comprise Inmarsat-3 are 20 times stronger than Inmarsat's first generation of satellites and they provide 2,200 voice and data channels. Consequently, the system functions with much smaller and less expensive antennas than previously and service rates are significantly lower.

Since the Inmarsat-3 satellites cover areas that land-based cellular systems do not, Tracphone 50 provides seamless communications over most of the earth. With the Inmarsat-3 constellation already launched, Tracphone 50 service now encompasses most of the world's ocean areas except for some rarely traveled, remote regions.

To facilitate system implementation for users, KVH has joined with Station 12 in marketing Tracphone 50 and Station 12's satellite communication service to Inmarsat-3. The Tracphone 50 system and Station 12's Altus service packages are being co-marketed under the terms of a collaborative understanding.

Bundling KVH's compact hardware and Station 12's inexpensive service expands the potential Tracphone 50 market to encompass a more diverse user group that now includes owners of commercial and pleasure vessels under 70 feet. The radome measures about 19 inches in diameter and 19 inches in height and weighs 30 pounds, approximately half the size of traditional global marine Inmarsat M satellite systems. Tracphone 50 is priced at approximately one-third the cost of traditional systems, and Station 12's marine satellite service rates begin at $2.40 a minute, considerably lower than the rates of other services such as Inmarsat A, B and M. In addition, KVH has a distribution network of more than 200 dealers in North America and an international sales network.

Inmarsat initiates and directs, from concept to completion, implementation and daily management of the world's only network of global marine satellites. It is recognized internationally for satellite service innovations such as Inmarsat-3.

PTT Telecom Netherlands' Station 12 was the first supplier to offer global voice, data and fax coverage with the Inmarsat A, B and M systems. KPN Group, the parent organization, is a publicly held company.

KVH Industries produces digital navigation systems and mobile satellite communications products for commercial, military and marine applications. The company was founded in 1982 and has headquarters in Middletown, RI (USA) and a European office in Hoersholm, Denmark. SOURCE KVH Industries, Inc.

I recentley received a newsletter called "The Cutting Edge" (editor Brian Hicks). It included the usual teaser stock picks (ones not mentioned by name but includes lots of pertinent details of the company highlighted). His pick is for KVH Industries to triple by year 2000 if I have guessed right. He mentions the company is invloved with GPS and is located in the "New England tech belt" (Middletown, Rhode Island). Also mentions $20 milllion NASA deal and the contract to install GPS navigation units in the entire 4,000 Bradley Fighting Vehicles. He expects revenue to double from 1996 (the gov contracts alone will exceed revenues in all of 1996) levels which itself rose 82% from 1995 figures and earnings up 66% to .35. (earnings were .35 in 1996 for KVHI). Seems like this stock is a compelling value play with about a $60 million market cap and float around 2.1 million shares. Any comments?

Brian, I do not know about you, but I never expected anything earth shatterring to come out of the 3rd quarter of the year, this year. Isn't the 3rd Q always KVHI's weakest, anyway? I think you HAVE to look long term, at least another 12 months down the road, to own this stock. I do not even think about $11 per share again until maybe the middle or end of next year (although I am hoping I am conservative). Do you think and feel the same way? The "downgrade" to buy from strong buy does not bother me at all. It is going to take some time for the new products and the contracts to hit the bottom line. Gary C.
