Money Manager favors Optimal Robotics
what are some of the recent buys that you’ve made in the portfolio?

Mr. Villere: This goes back to our investment philosophy of purchasing
companies that are unique to their industries, hold patents, and dominate
their particular niche. At these prices we love a company called Optimal
Robotics (Nasdaq:OPMR). They have several products for self-checkout at
grocery stores. And more recently, their product has gone into home
improvement centers, and, soon to be announced, will go into drugstores. Much
like pay-at-the-pump gas stations and ATM machines for banks, their principal
product is the U-scan machine. It allows a shopper to get in and out of the
store much quicker, creating loyalty to the store and increasing overall
customer satisfaction.

We move into a better future in proportion as science displaces superstition.
