Q&A Interview with Scott Sacknoff of the SPADE Defense Index (NYSE: ^DXS)

New York, New York - September 17, 2012 (Investorideas.com Newswire, www.homelanddefensestocks.com) Investorideas.com, an investor research portal specializing in sector research including defense and Homeland Defense stocks issues a recent interview with Mr. Scott Sacknoff of the SPADE Defense Index (NYSE: ^DXS).

Scott Sacknoff manages the SPADE Defense Index (NYSE: ^DXS), a benchmark for investing in the aerospace and defense sector. It has been licensed to Powershares whose Aerospace & Defense ETF (NYSE: PPA) tracks the performance of the Index.
Investorideas.com staff
Q. Thank you for joining us today. Where do you see the defense market at this time?
Scott Sacknoff, SPADE Defense Index
From a news perspective, most of the attention for the past several months has focused on the impact of sequestration and the fiscal cliff that could occur at year's end; and rightly so. Were it to occur, the impact would be severe, costing well more than a million defense-related jobs and new budget cuts in excess of $50 billion annually over the next decade (or, of course, until Congress changes the plan).  What it means is that investors interested in the sector have been playing it very cautiously.  Trading volumes are down significantly.  Small cap defense stocks as a whole continue to underperform as they have for the past several years although there are some signs of life.  From a historical valuation perspective, aerospace and defense stocks remain highly attractive and, thanks to the calendar roll-over, PPA, which tracks the industry benchmark SPADE Defense Index is hovering near 52-week highs.
Investorideas.com
What do you see as the likelihood of a deal that fixes sequestration issue?
Scott Sacknoff, SPADE Defense Index
I'd like to thank that beyond political posturing, most of our elected officials believe in doing what's best for our country.  Is there waste that could be cut at federal agencies, of course.  However, deliberately pushing our country into recession and double digit unemployment, well that's just insanity.  The reality is that I fear that the fix will come not only after the election but after the new Congress takes office in January and they work on a retroactive solution.  Unfortunately, from an investing perspective, by then the damage will have been done and a big drop in the market would have occurred.  If a solution is reached before the election or immediately thereafter, then there are a number of positives for the sector.
Investorideas.com
So shifting from politics, share with us some bright spots in A&D.
Scott Sacknoff , SPADE Defense Index
As anticipated, commercial aerospace is hitting on all cylinders and once the political issues surrounding the U.S. election are lifted, I'd expect revenues and profits to shift sharply higher.  Boeing has announced increased production levels for the 787 and 737 over the next two years and its new 737 Max has been very well received by the global airlines. This should lead to continued growth in aerospace manufacturing levels through the end of the decade. 
Investorideas.com
Barring sequestration, what do you see for the U.S. defense budget?
Scott Sacknoff , SPADE Defense Index
The specifics are still a bit cloudy. The trend for defense spending has been flattening after the sector grew post-9/11 for nearly a decade. Near-term some decline in total U.S. defense spending is a given as DoD seeks to restructure in a post-war environment while trying to prepare for new and anticipated threats; and all the while try to reduce total spending. An earlier budget  deal agreed to with Congress will see a savings of around $500 billion over the next decade, but the defense leadership sees this level as being manageable with most of the cuts coming from restructuring and eliminating waste.  In fact, as orders from international governments continue to rise, to the tune of more than $60 billion in 2011, I expect this growing line of business could offset some of the effects of the budget restructuring.
Investorideas.com
And the firms?
Scott Sacknoff , SPADE Defense Index
Unlike the post-Soviet collapse era, defense firms have had several years to improve their fiscal situation, shed or spin-off lower margin businesses, and acquire firms to better position themselves going forward.  With valuations low and cash-on-hand high, most companies are very healthy and could ride out this downcycle without major issues.  With margin expansion, we could even see their prices rise over time.  
Investorideas.com
Lastly, how will the presidential election impact the sector?
Scott Sacknoff , SPADE Defense Index
The truth is everything said now is just political posturing. Historically, the defense budgets rise and fall based on the current state of the world and not which party controls the White House.  Budgets rose during Vietnam (Kennedy, Johnson) and fell post-Vietnam (Carter), rose with Cold War tensions (Reagan) and fell after the Soviet collapse (Bush, Clinton), started rising when the cuts seemed to deep (Clinton) and rose post 9/11 (Bush). The budget is likely to see some cuts due to debt reduction and would rise in the event of an Iran nuclear situation or another terrorist attack. Ultimately, it won't matter who is President, it’s the world that matters.

Homeland Defense and Security Q&A Interview with PositiveID (OTCBB: PSID): How the M-BAND System Biothreat Detection is in the Running for BioWatch

New York, NY - July 23, 2012 - (Investorideas.com Newswire) Investorideas.com, a leader in research for independent investors presents an exclusive Q&A interview with Mr. William J. Caragol, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of PositiveID Corporation (OTCBB: PSID) discussing its M-BAND System for biothreat detection.

Q: Investorideas.com
Can you briefly explain to new investors how the M-BAND System works and how it can be deployed in the BioWatch Generation 3 program?
A: Mr. William J. Caragol, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
Our Microfluidics-based Bioagent Networked Detector, called M-BAND, was developed under contract for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and is an early warning system designed to detect the intentional release of aerosolized biological agents. It runs autonomously for up to 30 days between service cycles, continuously analyzing air samples, typically in high-traffic areas, for the detection of bacteria, viruses, and toxins with results in as little as three hours. Results from individual M-BAND instruments are reported via a secure wireless network in real time to give an accurate and up to date status for instruments in the field in aggregate. M-BAND was designed with a high level of operational flexibility, and can be remotely set to detect for DNA-based pathogens alone, with or without either RNA-based organisms or toxins, or for all three types of pathogens simultaneously at remotely programmable intervals.
Q: Investorideas.com
We understand the Department of Homeland Security wants to open bidding before October for Generation 3 of the BioWatch program, now estimated at $5.7 Billion. Where is PSID in the process?
A: Mr. William J. Caragol, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
We are currently awaiting the final RFP from the Department of Homeland Security, which is expected to be released later this year. In the meantime, we have made significant progress in our internal testing of M-BAND, which detects five organisms on the Centers for Disease Control Select Agents List, which is a requirement for BioWatch. Our system is fully functional and, we believe, one of the only technologies capable of addressing the requirements of the BioWatch procurement. We are preparing for potential additional testing of our system as well.
Q: Investorideas.com
The other company bidding for the BioWatch program is Northrop Grumman (NYSE:NOC); is this competitive against your technology or more synergistic?
A: Mr. William J. Caragol, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
We believe the M-BAND instrument offers a number of advantages over similar products, including decreased consumable and operating costs, a small footprint, a closed operating environment and significant flexibility of operation. M-BAND has been designed and field tested (both indoors and outdoors) to operate continuously for 30 days unattended between scheduled services, which we believe to be higher than competing technologies. It also operates using industry gold-standard TaqMan® PCR (polymerase chain reaction) chemistry.
Q: Investorideas.com
Your Company was recently featured in a Bloomberg Businessweek.com article discussing BioWatch; did that lend a new level of credibility for your company being a small OTC listed stock?
A: Mr. William J. Caragol, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
We believe articles like the one published in Bloomberg Businessweek shed light on the need for BioWatch Generation 3, and also highlight and validate our technology and our company. Many people may not have been previously aware of PositiveID or M-BAND, so it was very significant for our company and technology to be featured alongside the likes of Northrop Grumman. We have already received additional inquiries and interest from large corporations around the world including for possible partnership opportunities, as well as increased investor interest.
Q: Investorideas.com
Are you targeting any other markets forthe M-BAND System globally?
A: Mr. William J. Caragol, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
Unfortunately, terrorism is not limited to the United States, so M-BAND could be deployed in any location around the globe. In fact, the system has been field tested in London.

 Security Stock Alert; Smith & Wesson (NASDAQt: SWHC) Shoots up on Third Quarter Results

New York, NY- March 9, 2012 - www.InvestorIdeas.com, a global investor research portal, specializing in sector research for independent investors, issues a trading alert for security,  protection and sport company Smith & Wesson Holding Corporation (NASDAQ :SWHC). The stock is trading up at $6.87, up 1.21(21.38%) 11:13AM EST on over 5 Million shares, making it the NASDAQ top percentage gainer in morning trading.
The stock moved up on financial results for its fiscal 2012 third quarter ending January 31, 2012 reported yesterday on the close.
Your browser may not support display of this image.


Third Quarter Fiscal 2012 Financial Highlights

•Net sales from continuing operations for the third quarter of $98.1 million were up 23.8% from the third quarter last year.  The increase was driven by strong sales of M&P™ handguns, M&P™ sporting rifles, and all Smith & Wesson personal protection and concealed carry pistols. 
•Gross profit for the third quarter was $30.0 million, or 30.6% of net sales, compared with gross profit of $19.4 million, or 24.5% of net sales, for the same period last year.  The improvement in gross profit was driven by increased sales volume and increased overhead absorption due to higher production levels; as well as cost-reduction initiatives across the organization, including the completion of the consolidation of the Thompson/Center Arms business to Springfield, Massachusetts, which concluded in November 2011. In addition, the same period last year included costs associated with the company's strategic price repositioning activities. That strategic repositioning also resulted in lower ongoing promotion costs.
•Operating expense for the third quarter totaled $19.7 million, or 20.1% of net sales, compared with operating expense of $21.3 million, or 26.9% of net sales, for the third quarter last year.  The decrease in operating expense reflected cost-reduction initiatives across the organization as well as reduced legal fees related to the company's ongoing DOJ and SEC investigations.
•Net income from continuing operations for the third quarter was $5.4 million, or $0.08 per diluted share, compared with a net loss from continuing operations of $2.7 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, for the third quarter last year. Net income from continuing operations for the third quarter resulted from increased sales volumes and corresponding gross profit as well as reduced operating expenses.
•Non-GAAP adjusted EBITDAS from continuing operations for the third quarter increased to $14.8 million compared with $4.6 million for the same period last year.
•At January 31, 2012, firearm backlog was $198.5 million, an increase of $124.7 million, or 168.9%, compared with the end of the third quarter last year, and an increase of $48.6 million, or 32.0%, from the most recent sequential quarter. 
•Operating cash flow of $8.5 million and net capital spending of $3.5 million resulted in free cash flow of $5.0 million from continuing operations.
•Debt was reduced by $30.0 million through the repayment of outstanding convertible notes.

What is Bioagent Detection and How Is It Changing Our World?


Since the tragic attacks of September 11th, 2001, and the terrifying Amerithrax case, the world has become ever so aware of the threat of biological warfare and how very real this threat is. However, innovative companies like PositiveID Corporation (OTCBB: PSID) and their subsidiary MicroFluidic Systems have developed a bioagent detection device that will change how our government and military fight biowarfare.
So, what is bioagent detection anyway? Bioagent detection devices test the air for the presence of deliberately-released biological pathogens that are dangerous enough to be used as a biological weapon. Bacillus anthracis, perhaps the most commonly-known bioagent, causes Anthrax, a typically fatal disease. Because some of these hazardous agents can be made from readily-found ingredients, the need for solid protection against these types of deadly attacks continues to grow.
During the weeks immediately following the September 11 attacks, letters containing highlydeadly anthrax spores were sent via the postal system to several prominent news anchors and media offices, as well as two U.S. Senators. Five people were killed and 17 others were infected. For weeks, American citizens were terrorized by news reports of potentially-lethal exposure and warned of the deathly affects. Fearing for their safety, American demanded protection.
In response, the government formed BioWatch, a program to detect the release of airborne pathogens intended as an attack on major United States cities. The program was described as “the nation’s first early warning network of sensors to detect biological attack” and has included a system of filters located within the Environmental Protection Agency’s air filters. Collected data is analyzed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and suspected threats are passed on to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
However, criticism of the BioWatch program has brought some potential issues to the forefront. Many have expressed concerns about relying on the BioWatch system alone and some have pointed out specific points of possible failure in the system, from poor placement of filters in locations that are not optimal or are likely to incur bio attacks, to sizable gaps in coverage. Some noted that the BioWatch filters kill whatever pathogen has activated them, subsequently eliminating the possibility of further scientific testing. Others claim the current filters would be unable to detect indoor or underground bioagent releases, and would therefore, fail to protect our country in an attack.
Since the birth of BioWatch, the U.S. government and Department of Homeland Security have remain focused on keeping us safe from bio warfare attacks and bioterrorism. Millions have been spent on research supporting the development of better detection devices. America’s demand for a better answer is stronger than ever.
Luckily, PositiveID Corporation’s (“PositiveID”) subsidiary MicroFluidic Systems (“MFS”) developed a bio-threat detection device called M-BAND that will drastically change the world’s ability to defend against bioterrorism.
Developed over eight years, under contract for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), MBAND is an early warning system designed to detect the presence of intentionally-released aerosolized biological agents. For up to 30 days, M-BAND uses a biocell monitor, running autonomously, continuously collecting samples and analyzing the air. Designed to detect bacteria, viruses, and toxins, these machines can provide results within a mere three hours. Typically placed in high-traffic areas and networked together, M-BAND devices effectively monitor for air-borne pathogens by testing the air every 30 minutes and delivering results through a secure wireless network to a central location for extensive analysis.
After eight years of development, M-BAND offers a real solution. By providing real-time data, M-BAND provides awareness and protection against potential biological warfare attack. Furthermore, M-BAND can be remotely configured to test for all three pathogen types, both simultaneously at programmable intervals or any one in particular, including DNA-based pathogens, with or without either RNA-based organisms or toxins.
Among the bioagents that M-BAND can identify are strains of Bacillus anthracis, also known as anthrax, Yersinia pestis, responsible for causing Black Death and bubonic plague, Francisella tularensis, which causes tularemia or rabbit fever, Burkholderia mallei, which causes Glanders, and Burkholderia pseudomallei, the cause of melioidosis. Because these agents can kill so many people so quickly, an effective warning system is necessary and more important than ever to implement effective quarantine procedures as a line of defense.
The Department of Homeland Security has allocated $3 billion in the budget for bioaresol monitors to setup a network of early warning systems across the country. Luckily, among the large companies and organizations involved with bioagent detection, the unlikely underdog could save the day. The small-but-mighty PositiveID Corporation with M-BAND, an amazing biocell device, is changing the world of bioagent detection.
In a recent press release, PositiveID announced their upcoming presentation of their bioagent detection device called M-BAND at the 10th Annual American Society for Microbiology Biodefense and Emerging Diseases Research Meeting, scheduled to take place from February 26-29, 2012, in Washington, DC. Although smaller than some defense companies, PositiveID Corporation is making big waves on the BioWatch scene. By exhibiting with The Boeing Company, PositiveID stands to change the way the world fights bio warfare and bioterrorism.

Chairman and CEO of PositiveID (OTCBB: PSID) Discusses Catalysts for 2012 in Diabetes Market and Homeland Security Market

Chairman and CEO of PositiveID (OTCBB: PSID) Discusses Catalysts for 2012 in Diabetes Market and Homeland Security Market


New York, NY- February 16, 2012 – (Investorideas.com Newswire) Medical Technology Stock news alert: Investorideas.com, a leader in research for independent investors presents an exclusive Q&A interview with Medical technology stock, PositiveID Corporation (OTCBB: PSID). Mr. William J. Caragol, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer discusses the catalysts for 2012 for both its diabetes management technologies and its Homeland Security airborne bio-threat detection technology.

Q: Investorideas.com

We noted that late last year the Department of Homeland Security (“DHS”) Office of Health Affairs began the procurement process for the deployment of an autonomous biodetection system called BioWatch Gen-3. Can you give investors insight as to the potential 2012 opportunities for the Company’s airborne bio-threat detection technology (M-BAND) in this process?



A: Mr. William J. Caragol, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

Our MicroFluidic Systems (“MFS”) subsidiary, is a leader in biothreat detection technologies and molecular diagnostic systems, and developed its M-BAND technology under contract from DHS over the past eight years. We believe our M-BAND, a Microfluidics-based Bioagent Autonomous Networked Detector, is one of only two technologies that is compatible with DHS’ procurement for Gen-3 of Biowatch, which has a total value of more than $3 billion over approximately five years, as described by the DHS in their draft RFP. This opportunity, relative to the provision of biodetectors and the renewables, represents a very significant opportunity for PositiveID.



Q: Investorideas.com

With your three diabetes management technologies, Easy Check™, GlucoChip™ and iglucose™, can you give investors a quick summary of some of the recent key developments announced by the Company and some of the key drivers for 2012?



A: Mr. William J. Caragol, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

We continue to make significant progress with each of our diabetes management products. Starting with Easy Check, our non-invasive breath glucose detection device, we completed a prototype device in 2011 and achieved positive preliminary results in early testing that are within industry standards. We recently announced the initiation of a clinical study of Easy Check with Schneider Children’s Medical Center in Israel, led by a world leading endocrinologist. We expect to have results from that study later this year.



Moving on to GlucoChip, a continuous glucose-sensing microchip, we have completed Phase II development and proved a stable and reproducible, closed-cycle continuous glucose sensor that functions in human blood. We also recently provided an update on a biotransport study we are conducting with the Diabetes Research Institute at the University of Miami, which has yielded positive preliminary results. We will continue to provide updates on our progress over the next few months. As those results develop, we will look to work with a partner to incorporate the glucose-sensing system with a micro-electromechanical system signal transduction unit and the electronics of a radio frequency identification microchip to complete development of GlucoChip



Last but not least, we received FDA clearance for iglucose, which is a mobile health system for diabetes management, in late 2011, and are now preparing to roll-out this product with health insurers and home-healthcare providers. As we look ahead to the rest of 2012, we expect that the initial roll-out of iglucose in the first half of the year will be followed by larger orders and partnering agreements.



Q: Investorideas.com

Your technology takes management of diabetes to the clouds literally. With the iglucose technology, the data stored in the diabetes management portal can be shared automatically by text messaging or email. How significant a breakthrough is this for family members, caregivers and healthcare professionals and most importantly, the patient?



A: Mr. William J. Caragol, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

The value proposition of iglucose is to provide an individual with diabetes flexibility and wireless connectivity to better manage their condition and stay in touch with loved ones. With iglucose, an individual no longer has to keep manual logbooks – iglucose automatically pulls the data from a glucometer and sends it to the cloud. Patients can continue to use their preferred blood glucose meter and there is no cell phone or data plan required. iglucose simplifies diabetes management by automating the process of providing blood glucose readings to healthcare professionals for more informed communication and treatment decisions. iglucose also provides peace of mind for family members that their loved ones are testing and what their values are.



Q: Investorideas.com

Easy Check is your non-invasive breath glucose detection device that measures the level of acetone in a patient's exhaled breath and correlates that acetone level to a measure of blood glucose. With a rapid growth of diabetes in children how significant is it to have a technology that could eliminate a patient's need to prick his or her finger multiple times per day to get a blood sugar reading?



A: Mr. William J. Caragol, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

Being able to provide the diabetes community with a non-invasive method of testing their blood sugar is often called the “Holy Grail” of diabetes management. Certainly for children, offering non-invasive testing is even more important and appealing. Many times, people with diabetes do not test as often as prescribed by their physician due to the pain and inconvenience of drawing blood.
