I am going to start a series of articles that give my quick perspective on a number of stocks. They will be very brief but hopefully I give you a quick rundown on the stocks and why I would or would not look further into them.
The only criteria is that the stocks need to have a PE or 10 or less.
ASX:SCE - SunTech Environmental Group Limited - This is an investment company trading in China and Hong Kong. They are under tight regulatory restrictions due to the Chinese government and I don't see any major upside potential. Last report showed dramatic losses in profit. Decision : Not worth looking into further.
ASX:RMG - RMG Limited - This company is primarily a provider of receivables management services. RMG was initially formed by a merger of 22 Australian and New Zealand companies to create a major regional provider of receivable management and information services across Australia, NZ and Asia. This company is making a large loss and was delisted once and put into the hands of creditors. Decision : Not worth looking into further.
ASX:MSI - Multistack International Limited - This company operates in the heating, ventilation and air conditioning industry. Recent Numbers from half Yearly report show revenue dropping significantly but profits up substantially. Looking further back through the history of the company they are continually losing revenue. Decision : Not worth looking into further.
ASX:NWA - New World Alloys Limited - This company is a minerals exploration and development company. Even thought they are producing cash flow it is still not enough to cover expenses. Also the rest of the fundamentals do not look good for this company. Decision : Not worth looking into further.

The fundamentals are only showing a profit do to sale of assets last year. Cashflow is being burnt quickly. Decision : Not worth looking into further.
ASX:MOD - Medical Corporation Australasia Limited - This company is involved in investment in healthcare and the research, development and commercialisation of medical products.

Management are just jumping around looking for the hot sector. Decision : Not worth looking into further.

ASX:CDH - Chongherr Investments Ltd - This company principally operates in the quarrying of sandstone and exporting the blocks to Asia and Europe. They are making a profit although it was dropping.

ASX:IEQ - International Equities Corporation Limited - This company is principally involved in the investment and development of property, and the management of the Seasons of Perth hotel. This company is making a profit but property developments currently being undertaken are chewing through the cash. Decision : Further Investigation needed leaning towards possible avoid.
ASX:LAS - Lasseters Corporation Limited - is an online casino operator, providing casino gambling services to the international market. Interesting area that has a lot of competition but also a lot of takeovers and mergers. Management is making tough decisions about losing the majority of revenue from the US. They will make a loss this year but could warrant investigation in the 2008 year if they return to profitability. Decision : Further Investigation needed leaning towards possible wait before buy.
ASX:MME - MTM Entertainment Trust - This company is a property trust. Together with its controlled entity, The Worlds Biggest Screens Pty Ltd, it operates IMAX theatres and invests in the leisure and entertainment property market. I couldn't see them making money in any recent reports. Decision : Further Investigation needed leaning towards possible avoid.

Still they are losing cash each quarter and not worthwhile as a long term investment.Decision : Not worth looking into further.
ASX:GUL - Gullewa Limited - This company has investments in several sectors, including listed equities, property, telecommunications, exploration and mining. This company has been performing well. I do not know enough specifics on the investments but they are showing good returns. Decision : Further Investigation needed leaning towards possible buy.

ASX:CDL - Canada Land Limited - This company principal activities include the development and management of residential and commercial property in the transportation hub of Guangzhou, in the Peoples Republic of China. China is being very restrictive on investments and this adds risks to this company. The Debt to Equity Ratio looks good and the stock price is sitting at a 12 month high. The NTA backing has increased to 15c. This stocks looks to be producing the growth needed and should be investigated further. Decision : POSSIBLE BUY
Well I hope that has helped a few people who are on less money and are looking for the smaller stocks. There is always a greater risk and reward when dealing with these types of stocks due to the wild swings which can occur. Still there are opportunities to be found and exploited.
Good Luck Investing.
