Mar 26, 2014 at 5:36PM

In its latest update on sales of its new line of AXON on-body wearable camcorders for police officers, TASER International (NASDAQ:TASR) reported Wednesday that it has booked three sizable new contracts with law enforcement -- and several smaller orders as well. All of these orders were received in, and are expected to turn up as revenue in the first half of fiscal 2014.

The headlines today feature:

  • The sale of 96 "AXON body" on-body cameras to the Danville Police Department in Virginia, plus a four-year contract to provide EVIDENCE.com digital video storage service for the devices.
  • The sale of 84 more AXON body cameras, along with EVIDENCE.com service for an unspecified duration, for the Duluth Police Department in Minnesota.
  • The sale of 50 "AXON flex" on-body cameras to the Miami Police Department in Florida.

TASER noted that it has made additional sales of AXON body and flex cameras, plus EVIDENCE.com subscriptions, to law enforcement agencies in: Arizona, Arkansas, California, Florida, Idaho, Kentucky, New Mexico, Missouri, North Carolina, Texas, Vermont, Virginia, Washington state, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.

At announced prices of $499 for AXON flex and $299 for AXON body, these sales appear to represent one-time H1 2014 sales revenue of more than $78,000 for TASER, with recurring monthly EVIDENCE.com revenues in excess of $1,800.

4 in 5 Americans Are Ignoring Buffett's Warning

Don't be one of them.

Jun 12, 2015 at 5:01PM

Admitting fear is difficult.

So you can imagine how shocked I was to find out Warren Buffett recently told a select number of investors about the cutting-edge technology that's keeping him awake at night.

This past May, The Motley Fool sent 8 of its best stock analysts to Omaha, Nebraska to attend the Berkshire Hathaway annual shareholder meeting. CEO Warren Buffett and Vice Chairman Charlie Munger fielded questions for nearly 6 hours.
The catch was: Attendees weren't allowed to record any of it. No audio. No video. 

Our team of analysts wrote down every single word Buffett and Munger uttered. Over 16,000 words. But only two words stood out to me as I read the detailed transcript of the event: "Real threat."

That's how Buffett responded when asked about this emerging market that is already expected to be worth more than $2 trillion in the U.S. alone. Google has already put some of its best engineers behind the technology powering this trend. 

The amazing thing is, while Buffett may be nervous, the rest of us can invest in this new industry BEFORE the old money realizes what hit them.

KPMG advises we're "on the cusp of revolutionary change" coming much "sooner than you think."

Even one legendary MIT professor had to recant his position that the technology was "beyond the capability of computer science." (He recently confessed to The Wall Street Journal that he's now a believer and amazed "how quickly this technology caught on.")

Yet according to one J.D. Power and Associates survey, only 1 in 5 Americans are even interested in this technology, much less ready to invest in it. Needless to say, you haven't missed your window of opportunity. 

Think about how many amazing technologies you've watched soar to new heights while you kick yourself thinking, "I knew about that technology before everyone was talking about it, but I just sat on my hands." 

Don't let that happen again. This time, it should be your family telling you, "I can't believe you knew about and invested in that technology so early on."

That's why I hope you take just a few minutes to access the exclusive research our team of analysts has put together on this industry and the one stock positioned to capitalize on this major shift.
