Bryan Perry's Internet Investing Daily merged with ChangeWave Investment Research in January 2001, and Perry has been the head trader and editorial contributor to ChangeWave Investing since. This year, he launched an exciting, technical e-letter, The Tactical Trader. His pick for 2004 is Superconductor Technologies.

"My recommendation for stock pick for 2004 is Superconductor Technologies (SCON NASDAQ). The company has roots deep in R&D and transitioned in late 1990s to a product-oriented operation. Extremely innovative approach enables wireless carriers to do more with less. SCON develops superconducting products for wireless markets, which are installed on existing mobile base stations to improve signal strength and network capacity. Since SCON's technologies use extreme temperatures of less than 300 degrees below zero, the components conduct electricity without the electrical resistance that usually creates noise and signal loss during wireless transmissions. SCON acquired Conductus, its largest competitor, in December 2002, giving SCON a near monopoly in this business."

"SCON's technology enables wireless operators to increase the range and/or capacity of existing cell sites. Using SCON's products, wireless operators can optimize their existing cell sites and put off having to build new sites due to coverage holes or capacity issues. Customers see real, verifiable value from SCON products such as fewer dropped calls, fewer blocked calls, fewer dead spots in a given cell area, better data performance and increased cell capacity (in some cases). Superconductor Technologies expects to double its production capacity in 2004 over 2003. Customers include Verizon Wireless, Cingular Wireless, AT&T Wireless, Alltel, US Cellular and 20 regional, Latin American and other networks."
