This is a continuation of my search for the best small companies from the 200 listed in Forbes 2008.

You can refer to the previous results here: 1-15 | 16-32 | 33-70 | 71-130 | 131-160 | 161-200

The companies ranked 131-160 has yielded 9 results. This is the first time I’ve come across these companies and there are some interesting businesses here definitely worth a second look.

Results

  1. Jack Henry & Associates (JKHY) – provides data processing systems for banks and finance companies
  2. Heico (HEI) – makes replacement parts for jet engines
  3. Heartland Express (HTLD) – provides nationwide transportation services to major shippers
  4. LoJack (LOJN) – makes stolen vehicle tracking and recovery systems
    • Seems to be very oversold from a quantitative standpoint.
  5. Circor International (CIR) – develops instrumentation and thermal fluid control products
  6. Rimage (RIMG) – makes compact disc production and duplication equipment
  7. Haemonetics (HAE) – makes automated blood processing systems

    I had forgotten about LOJN. Thanks for the reminder.

    Since I haven’t been able to analyse it, my opinions would be quite hopeless. So instead here is a pdf of my spreadsheet which displays numbers that look very good. Even with a 0% growth in cash, LOJN is very cheap from a numbers point of view.
