I forgot about a GTC order I had for only 100 shares at $15.70, and it filled last week during the big drop.

I feel better about it now, but who knows with this stock. It is so unpredictable lately.

What a morning, I've got two gappers, FRPT and JSDA

Army says Buffalo award coming in June or July after pre-solicitation on sole
Force Protection May Win $144 Million U.S. Army Truck Award
2007-03-09 14:04 (New York)


By Edmond Lococo
March 9 (Bloomberg) -- Force Protection Inc., the biggest
maker of blast-resistant trucks for the U.S. Marine Corps, may
win a U.S. Army order to make vehicles used to clear roadways of
mines and explosives in Iraq valued at about $144 million.
The Army on Feb. 16 issued a notice of its plan to buy 180
of Force Protection's Buffalo trucks, without a competition, and
allowed protests of the decision to be filed until March 5. The
deadline to protest the uncontested award passed this week
without response from potential competitors, Army spokesman Don
Jarosz said in an interview today.
The Army plans on awarding the contract in June or July,
Jarosz said. The Buffalo is the largest of three types of mine-
protected trucks used by the Army and Marines, and features a 30-
foot robotic arm with iron claw to clear explosives. Assistant
Secretary of the Army Claude Bolton said yesterday the two
services may buy 4,000 to 6,600 mine-protected vehicles.
``There is no competitor out there for the Buffalo
currently, so it makes sense they would get this sole-source
award,'' said Alan Albrecht, an individual investor who said he
holds about 400,000 shares of Force Protection among his private
investments. ``Production is ramping up quickly.''
The Buffalo costs about $800,000 per vehicle, Force
Protection Vice President Michael Aldrich said. At that price, a
purchase of 180 trucks would be worth about $144 million.
The purchases would add to the approximately 100 Buffalo
trucks already ordered by the Army, and would follow a $16.3
million Marine Corps order for 19 of the vehicles on March 6,
Aldrich said.

Cougar in Competition

``They put out a pre-solicitation notice when they intend
to make a sole-source award so that anyone who wishes to protest
can do so,'' Aldrich said in an interview today.
``We have not received any protests,'' Jarosz said.
Force Protection based in Ladson, South Carolina also is
competing for awards to build the smaller mine-protected trucks
with its Cougar vehicle. The Buffalo and Cougar have already
logged more than two million hours of heavy combat operations
and withstood more than 2,000 explosive attacks since they were
first deployed in 2003, the company has said.
Shares of Force Protection rose 35 cents to $16.50 at 1:21
p.m. New York time in Nasdaq Stock Market composite trading.
They have surged eightfold in the past year.

What's good for FRPT is good for SPAR, especially if they get that big contract that everybody is talking about. Regardless of that, I'll be a buyer on a blue skies breakout over 24.75.

www.streetinvesting.com: Force Protection Inc. Sparks Interest
08:47 a.m. 03/12/2007 Provided by


Mar 12, 2007 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) -- Please visit www.Streetinvesting.com for the full report.

Wall Street closed with mixed results Friday, showing more stability after its recent drop yet still exhibiting signs of a nervous sentiment. Although an upbeat report on employment was able to soothe the nerves of some, others remained jittery about a jump in wholesale inventories and additional evidence of subprime mortgage problems. Despite the week's varied performance, shareholders of Force Protection Inc. (FRPT) were able to see success Friday, experiencing a 6.19% up-tick accompanied by a trading volume of approximately 1,576,875.

Recently, our experienced team of researchers has been placing an increased focus on various companies throughout the American Markets. Force Protection Inc. was one of the prospective companies which we have chosen to bring to your attention.

In some of the most recent news to surface surrounding Force Protection Inc, which we feel may have had an effect on the day's success in the marketplace, as well as an ongoing effect on shareholder outcome, Force Protection Inc. announced that it has received a delivery order from the U.S. Marine Corps for an additional 19 Buffalo mine-protected vehicles worth an estimated $16.2 million.

Force Protection Inc. manufactures ballistic- and mine-protected vehicles through its wholly owned subsidiary. To continue with the full report, more information and research please go to www.streetinvesting.com

Press Release Source: Force Protection, Inc.

Force Protection Expands Research and Development Facilities
Monday March 12, 9:12 am ET

LADSON, S.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Force Protection, Inc. (NASDAQ:FRPT - News) today announced it has purchased the Research and Developmental Testing Facility of NEWTEC Services Group, Inc. Force Protection's ownership became effective March 9, 2007.

ADVERTISEMENT
The leading armored vehicle manufacturer will use the facilities located near Edgefield, SC to expand its research and development activities and support the verification and quality control validation of Force Protection's armored vehicles used to protect military personnel against explosive threats.

"These assets will be extremely valuable to our ongoing R&D efforts," said Force Protection CEO Gordon McGilton. "Force Protection's commitment to producing the world's most advanced blast- and ballistic-protected vehicles is directly affected by our ability to continually improve upon the life-saving vehicle designs that have performed so well in the field. These new facilities will help strengthen this ability."

Force Protection's Buffalo and Cougar vehicles have been deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan since 2003 and have an unmatched record for troop safety after logging more than two million hours of heavy combat operations.

The company also recently introduced the Cheetah, a lighter weight blast-protected vehicle series designed for missions that require greater mobility in urban environments. Force Protection will conduct testing for all of its vehicle lines at this new facility.

Force Protection Faces Pricing Push

Sigh. Another Melissa Davis Article. This one at least is much more balanced, although she still seems to be in love with any other company that is not FRPT. Also, inaccurate closing price.

Read it here instead of there. Keep it out of the street's top 10! Jo
quote:


Force Protection faces Pricing push
3.12.2007

By Melissa Davis
Force Protection (FRPT) still faces plenty of threats

Fans view Force Protection as something of a superpower in the fight for billions of dollars worth of business available under the U.S. military's Mine-Resistant Ambush-Protected vehicle program.


To its credit, Force Protection boasts proven vehicles and an important partnership with heavyweight defense contractor General Dynamics (GD) . It has secured the biggest MRAP awards so far.


But competition for the lucrative contracts is fierce. Some watchers worry that the company won't win as many contracts as backers expect -- and that demand for skilled workers in the fast-expanding blast-resistant vehicle business could hit profits by driving Force Protection's costs up.


For its part, Force Protection remains confident.


"Americans love to work for a good cause," Force Protection Vice President Mike Aldrich told TheStreet.com last week. "We've always been able to find the right people with the right talents and skills to work with us at our South Carolina facilities. We expect that to continue."


But Force Protection operates in the same region of South Carolina as Protected Vehicles, an upstart recently launched by one of its own founders. Force Protection has been hiring hundreds of workers as it races to meet strong demand for its products. But Protected Vehicles is tapping that same market for workers of its own.


To help attract workers, Protected Vehicles has forged relationships with government agencies -- and even resurrected a military welding school -- in preparation for its big hiring spree. The company believes it can meet its escalating labor requirements.


"As far as competing for labor, we offer a pretty good package" of wages and benefits, says Drew Felty, program manager for Protected Vehicles. "We have not had any (hiring) issues to date. We don't anticipate any issues" either.


Some worry about Force Protection instead. Specifically, they fear that the company will face rising labor costs -- and a corresponding hit to its margins -- even if it does manage to woo all of the workers it needs.


They foresee another threat to Force Protection's financial performance as well. Notably, with Protected Vehicles partner Oshkosh (OSK) now selling its vehicles for just $300,000 apiece, they wonder if Force Protection can keep on charging far more.


Force Protection has been securing about $500,000 for its own vehicles. The company calls its current prices "competitive" but suggests that operational improvements could lower its costs and prices.


Yet some sense mounting pressures right now.


"The Oshkosh contract ... will put significant pricing pressure on the other competitors and squeeze their already thin margins," one investor with no position in the stock wrote in a recent email to TheStreet.com. The U.S. military "will use this as a stick to beat down the pricing walls."


For now Force Protection faces no competition -- or resulting pricing pressure -- in one area at least. It alone produces a vehicle, known as the Buffalo, which meets the qualifications set forth under Category III of the MRAP program.


But even this situation could change. Importantly, Protected Vehicles says it is currently developing a next-generation vehicle that could fall into the Category III classification down the road.


"Competition is always a possibility when you have a good product that is working well," Aldrich concedes. But "our selection as the [Ground Standoff Minefield Detection System] centerpiece vehicle for the Army's route clearance operations and the MRAP sole-source Cat III award are certainly gratifying because they essentially 'win' the U.S. market for the next four to five years."


Outside that category, however, some experts see other companies fielding new orders very soon. Notably, four of the nine vendors supplying the military with test MRAP vehicles have yet to land bigger contracts.


Thus, some experts see changes on the way. Ultimately, they feel that Force Protection could wind up sharing big chunks of MRAP with multiple competitors in the end.


"We believe the military will select at least two more vendors -- if not all four of the remaining vendors -- in order to meet the urgent requirements from Iraq by the end of April," Stanford analyst Josephine Millward wrote last week. "Final production awards will likely be evenly distributed and based on production capacity, in our view."


Millward currently has no rating on Force Protection or other companies in the group. Force Protection, a former penny stock, enjoyed a huge rally that ended as the shares approached $25 back in January. But the stock has come under intense selling pressure since that time. Shares rose 39 cents Friday to $16.54.


Aldrich views the plunge as a "typical, temporary correction for a stock that rose very rapidly" in the fourth quarter of last year. He blames some short-term profit taking for the decline as well. But he personally feels confident about the future of the company.


"Force Protection's objective is, and always has been, to build a long-term growth business," Aldrich says. "To do that, we're focused on doing what we do best: producing the highest-quality troop-protection vehicles in the world to keep our soldiers safe from harm."

She's a paid basher for sure. When she says something negative she has no specific source. It's always "some people fear...", "some say that...". It's what she wants you to fear. But, hey, apparently she's done her job well.

Yeah, the article is filled with "some" and "they". Who are "they", Melissa?

I especially like this gem:

"The Oshkosh contract ... will put significant pricing pressure on the other competitors and squeeze their already thin margins," one investor with no position in the stock wrote in a recent email to TheStreet.com. The U.S. military "will use this as a stick to beat down the pricing walls."


ha, ha, now she is quoting anonymous message board posters, I guess.

British Buying Additional Armored Vehicles from Force Protection, Inc.


LADSON, S.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Force Protection, Inc. (NASDAQ:FRPT) today announced that it recently received a contract modification from the British Ministry of Defence for 22 additional Cougar Mastiff Protected Patrol Vehicles (Mastiff PPV). The order will bring the total number of vehicles produced for the British government to 108 at an approximate value of $70.1 million.

Under the contract awarded in August 2006, Force Protection expects to deliver the vehicles by the end of June 2007.

"Force Protection has worked hard to get its lifesaving armored vehicles to U.S. armed forces and their allies throughout the world," said Force Protection CEO Gordon McGilton. "We are gratified by this contract modification which is indicative of the vital role these vehicles play in increasing troop safety, and are pleased to provide these vehicles to the British military."

The Mastiff PPV is based on Force Protection's Cougar Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) vehicle, which has been deployed with combat engineers and first response teams in Iraq and Afghanistan for more than three years. The first deliveries of the Mastiff PPV were shipped ahead of schedule in November 2006.

Article by Bob Woodruff:

http://abcnews.go.com/WNT/story?id=2950795&page=1

Remember that tonight on World News Tonight, he will be doing a story on MRAP's with mention of Force Protection.

I'm a bit worried that they will skew the article to make it sound like FPI can't handle the orders that they are going to get.

JUST ONCE, how bout a totally positive article about this company!

Just watched the story on ABC news. Video here:

http://abcnews.go.com/WNT/story?id=2950487&page=1

It was good. Featured interviews inside the factory. Showed footage of a blast test. Interviewed soldiers who said they "never want to ride in a humvee again".

They mentioned the name "Force Protection" several times, as well as had the name transposed on the screen.

The Nightline story was awesome. It was more detailed, more pro-FRPT, got the story out there that these vehicles are here and have been. Clearly put the blame for the delay on DOD, and not on industry.

(also, FPI's name mentioned numerous times, printed on the screen numerous times. Entire story about FRPT and no other manufacturer shared the limelight.)

I stated to transcribe it, but I doubt that I will finish. They'll probably post it after the west coast airing. Anyway here's a teaser:

quote:
This 400,000 square foot converted jet engine plant, just west of Charleston, SC is now ground zero in the battle against deadly IED’s. Once a tiny start- up company with about a dozen employees, Force Protection Incorporated is now 800 strong and living up to its name.

(soldier in truck driving says) “I myself, if they would let me, would drive this thing over a landmine right now just to test it out, I feel that comfortable in these vehicles.

Their blast resistant vehicles, the Cougar and the bomb clearing Buffalo, have become the gold standard in protection against the weapon of choice in Iraq. (picture of vehicle hitting an IED)

(General Brogan): Those vehicles have performed exceedingly well in the theatre, so we’re doing everything we can in the govt and I’ve impressed upon industry to how important it is for them to do their part, to ramp up and rapidly produce these vehicles.

(Bob Woodruff talking with welder): Is it getting more busy here?

(welder) Oh, it’s getting QUITE busy here!”

Many of the highly skilled welders, like Carrie Revenell, here used to train there torches on submarines, but the needs of the war machine have changed and now these craftsmen are working at breakneck speed to build these armored vehicles so desparately needed in Iraq.

(welder) We’re building these trucks right here and we are bringing a lot of people home.

The first Cougars off these production lines were delivered to the Marine Corps in Fallujah in late 2004.

(Aldrich, with MIKE ALDRICH, VP, FORCE PROTECTION, INC. printed on the screen) You may remember in November there was a major operation to retake that city. As soon as we got those first vehicles to the Marine Corps engineers, my email lit up with email from Army engineers saying, “How come the marines have a better vehicle than we do?”

The success of these vehicles in Iraq, these are some that took hits from IED’s (pictures shown) is due to a fundamental change in thinking and design.
