Great company that makes software (electronic medical records) for hospitals. Very profitable. Earns premiums annualy from customers plus the intial cost of the contract. Just won a big contract in Europe. Over 40% of the float is short. Earnings growth of 22-30%. Stock goes over $80 in 2006.

Parlux Fragrances (NASDAQ: PARL) (54.3% Short)
Perfume company with real earnings. Just reported a blowout qtr. I think the stock goes higher. Wish I owned it. Going to be making Paris Hilton perfume/bags. High margin business with high growth prospects.

Forword Industries (NASDAQ: FORD) (24.2% Short)
Another very profitable company that makes bags and accessories. Founded in 1954. Stock has also had a huge move from $2 to $23. Still a very interesting play.
