Capital Growth Financial Issues Research Update on ICOP Digital
Sep 18, 2007 (08:09 AM EDT)
LENEXA, Kan., Sept. 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- ICOP Digital, Inc. , an industry-leading company engaged in advancing digital surveillance solutions, today announced that Capital Growth Financial, LLC (CGF) has issued a research update on ICOP, raising its rating to "Buy" from "Neutral," while reducing its 12-month price target to $7.50 from $9.00.
Howard Rosencrans, Chief Research Analyst at CGF, stated, "We view the current enterprise value of $36 million as modest, given the Company's emerging leadership status in digital video surveillance and the multi-billion dollar opportunities being addressed. Our 12-month target price of $7.50 represents 1.0x the Company's expected three to five year top-line growth rate of 25.0x discounted back. We view significant market capture as simply a timing issue."
