I got back in TASR awhile ago, I think around $9.50 when it appeared to have found it's bottom and many of the legal issues were being settled. I also figured we would crank things up overseas eventually, which they have done.

One of the biggest reasons I got in was because of their competition.

They are suing TASR right now. Ahh, but the key for me is I know the CEO personally. He is the biggest snake in the grass you will find on the street. It is shocking to see how many company's he has bankrupted and how many shareholders and employees of all his many failed company's he has royally screwed, while he is building more huge lake houses, expensive cars and etc......Every company this guy has run, he promised the world, promised they had this that or whatever, yet he never had squat.

When I saw him as the ceo for tasr's competition, it made me want to go long TASR as I KNOW his company is nothing but a pipe dream and nothing more. But, as they attempt to sue tasr, they are creating more exposure to tasr. The more they push these type products, the more sales they will push to TASR. Why? Because not many are going to look at Gruders company/products and want to do biz with them. But they may be impressed with the type of product and instead buy thru TASR.

GRUDER is a SCU*bag and a C*n Artist, imo. Any company giving him any business is taking a big risk. Most will NOT do biz with Gruder after seeing his history, but they may go with TASR instead.

So, I look at Gruder as being a positive for TASR. I hope he runs his mouth alot and gets everybody interested in these products. The more he opens his mouth the more sales he will provide to his direct competitor, TASR!

Taser Swings to 2Q Profit

Taser International Swings to 2nd-Quarter Profit on Sales Growth, Absence of Legal Charges

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Taser International Inc. distanced itself from hefty litigation last year and reported Monday that it swung to a second-quarter profit on strong sales to police departments nationwide.
Stun-gun maker posted earnings of $3.7 million, or 6 cents per share, compared with a loss of $9.6 million, or 15 cents per share, in the prior-year quarter. The 2006 quarter included a shareholder litigation expense of $17.7 million.

The five industry analysts surveyed by Thomson Financial were expecting 4 cents per share in the second quarter.

Sales swelled 59 percent to $25.9 million from $16.2 million a year ago due to growth in its core law enforcement market and sales to the U.S. military.

Taser stun guns fire electrically charged darts that carry 50,000 volts for several seconds, temporarily immobilizing targets.

That's nice. I got back in it a while ago at around 8 or 9 and let it sit in my KEOGH. Too bad I didn't do the same with ELAN, I bought at 6, and sold at around 14 or so. It's now around 21.

In both cases I did not catch the actual bottom. But when stocks are unfairly punished, they may take a while to bounce back but they inevitably do.
