the Following Stocks: RedEnvelope, Powerwave Technologies, and DoubleClick Business Editors CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 2, 2004 The first Fed rate hike in four years had little dramatic effect on Wednesday's market. No matter how future rate increases impact the environment, Bill Martin and Matt Ragas can keep you on the profitable path with their extensive market and stock information. Read about RedEnvelope (NASDAQ:REDE), Powerwave Technologies (NASDAQ:PWAV), and DoubleClick (NASDAQ:DCLK). Bill Martin and Matt Ragas are the editors of the FindProfit newsletter. Click here for the full story exclusively on Zacks.com: http://at.zacks.com/?id=84 Here are the highlights from the Featured Expert column: A New Twist in the RedEnvelope Saga from the evening edition on June 30 Based on a new 13D filing that crossed the tape Wednesday morning, RedEnvelope (NASDAQ:REDE) co-founder and director Scott Galloway has teamed up with some other REDE shareholders to try and shake things up at the company. In the filing, the group says that ``certain changes`` at REDE ``may be necessary to enhance the value`` of their investment and that it believes the firm`s recent financial results ``have been disappointing.`` The group went on to say that it believes current management strategy and oversight by the board of directors ``has been ineffective.`` Apparently, Bill and Matt were not the only ones who were badly disappointed by REDE's poor financial performance last holiday shopping season. They like seeing some large REDE shareholders, particularly people who used to run this business, rattling the company's cage and looking to shake things up. Wall Street Waiting for PWAV to Execute The going has been slow of late for wireless infrastructure provider Powerwave Technologies (NASDAQ:PWAV). Weighing on the stock are concerns about the company's ability to execute in the wake of its merger with European competitor LGP Allgon, and that's what led Credit Suisse First Boston to initiate coverage of PWAV with an ``underperform`` rating. CSFB is basically saying that the company has to bring home the bacon come earnings time over the next 2-3 quarters to quell execution fears. However, where CSFB sees more downside than upside, Bill and Matt see the reverse. It's worth noting that CSFB was also rather bearish on PWAV`s main competitor Andrew Corp. (NASDAQ:ANDW). Bill and Matt continue to believe that PWAV is undervalued and that the LGP Allgon deal will reap rewards for the company. The deal, among other things, has helped PWAV to mitigate its exposure to Nortel Networks (NYSE:NT) - which is presently embroiled in an accounting scandal - and should create cost and sales synergies that will enable the company to boost sales and improve margins. Goldman Comments on DCLK and Ad Serving Bill and Matt wanted to share some brief comments on a short research note that Goldman Sachs put out on the future of ad serving and DoubleClick (NASDAQ:DCLK), which drew some subscriber questions. In the note, well-respected Goldman Internet analyst, Anthony Noto, said he believes that the ``online ad serving business will become increasingly commoditized`` and that he ``sees the potential for ad serving to eventually be given away for free or near free." DCLK is of course a long time holding in the long term growth Tiger Woods portfolio. While Bill and Matt respect Noto`s work, the threat of commoditization to DCLK`s ad serving product is hardly new and is already pretty widely known. While players like Google could negatively impact DCLK`s ad serving business some at the margin, DCLK has been moving for the past few years now (organically and via acquisitions) to layer additional tools and services (analytics, campaign tracking, data management etc) around its DART product and to diversify its revenue streams. Bottomline, DCLK is of course competing in a competitive and growing space and could fumble the ball further (i.e. its latest investments and acquisitions don't pay off), but the recent Goldman note doesn't change their bullish view of the stock down at this level.
