An Arizona-based company just offered to equip every police officer in the United States with a body camera for one year.
Axon (TASR) — formerly known as Taser International — said Wednesday that it will also provide police departments with all the hardware, data storage and training they need to use the devices.
At the end of one year, police departments can choose to purchase the devices and docking stations, which cost $400 and $200, respectively, or return them to Axon. If they keep the devices, they’ll also pay roughly $80 a month per camera for data storage.
All that will be free for the first year. And Axon founder and CEO Rick Smith said he expects the the body cameras will make it easier for officers to do their jobs, and will “drive important social change.”
“[The cameras] hold the potential to change police work as we know it, by seamlessly collecting an impartial record and reducing the need for endless paperwork. That’s why we’re giving this opportunity to every single police officer in America,” Smith said.

Four ideas turned up in this screen that might be of interest (prices as of February 9th close):
Heron Therapeutics (NASDAQ:HRTX) by ONeil Trader – published February 3rd, 2017, $525M Market cap, down ~2% since publication, author’s price target offers 130% upside. HRTX isn’t a generic drug provider, but its CINV franchise vs. the growth of a new drug gives it a similar sort of profile, and arguably a favorable risk/reward; commenters were mostly positive on the thesis. VistaGen Therapeutics (OTC:VTGN) by Logical Assessment – published July 29, 2016, $24M market cap, down 16% since publication, author’s price target offers 100%+ upside. This is obviously deeper into the speculative pile, but if the author’s thesis holds about VistaGen’s unique angle in the antidepressant drug space, comparable deals suggest good upside. (Of course, it’s always dangerous to rely solely on comparables). Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories (NYSE:RDY) by Buddy Lyons – published July 5, 2016, $7.6B market cap, down ~13% since publication, author’s price target offers just shy of 100% upside. Dr. Reddy’s is a more obvious comparable to TEVA, with a generics business but also a manufacturing business and a proprietary products branch. The company bought a divestiture package of drugs from TEVA as part of the Allergan/Actavis deal. A big overhang was an FDA warning letter; the FDA is due to reinspect facilities this month or next, which could resolve that one way or another. Lannett (NYSEMKT:LCI) by Lateral Capital Management – published May 27, 2016, $750M market cap, down ~9% since publication, author’s price target offers 75% upside. LCI’s trading had been 90% correlated with Valeant, but Lateral Capital Management argues that the correlation is unjustified. The article does a deep dive into the company’s valuation and credit risk, and was well received at the time, even if the market hasn’t agreed…yet.

In my Trader column on Dec.3, I argued for more upside in Deere (DE), despite the fact that it had gained more than 30% on the year. Part of the argument was technical–Deere had finally broken out of a trading range that had been in place for five years–but I also noted that the agricultural equipment maker had been able to grow earnings despite continued sluggish demand for farm equipment. Today, Baird’s Mircea Dobre and Joseph Grabowski make a similar argument as they name Deere an Idea for 2017:
Deere has upside even after a strong 4Q16 where the real surprise was strong Ag margin rather than confirmation that a turn in the Ag cycle is imminent. This is where the opportunity lies: as investors find additional evidence supporting a 2017 North American ag bottom the multiple can continue expanding towards the historical peak of 25x baked in our target. For perspective, Caterpillar (CAT) is trading >30x on the premise of a bottom in several cyclical end markets (mining, infrastructure, oil & gas).
Shares of Deere have ticked up 0.1% to $103.49 at 1:29 p.m. today, while Caterpillar has advanced 0.1% to $93.28. The Industrial Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLI) is up 0.1% at $62.50.
