Less than two months ago, pampaflash helped Fools feel connected to the stock: "They have no debt and $2.21 per share cash compared to a $4.00 stock price. As WiMax rolls out in the United States and around the world, [Alvarion] stands to receive contracts that will expand business."

In a pitch from last week, Skyquest949 expands on Alvarion as a particularly smart decision:

[Alvarion] is starting to enter the Smart Grid arena. With [General Electric (NYSE:GE)] producing the Smart Meters that are WiMax enabled, [Alvarion] has the potential to become a big player in the Smart Grid multi billion market. Other companies competing for inclusion in the Smart Grid are using WiFi technology. [Alvarion] has a distinct advantage with WiMax and is working on a proof of concept with National Grid, one of the second largest utility companies in the US.
