Biometric Sensors Will Be In Demand

 Apple's recent purchase of AuthenTec should bring up the valuations of biometric plays.

In the How To Find Big Stocks Newsletter we have several small biometric plays with extensive IP that we think are the next to get bought out.

From NFC News Biometrics necessary on smart mobile devices.

British market research firm Goode Intelligence predicts in its new report “Mobile Phone Biometric Security – Analysis and Forecasts 2011-2015” that mobile biometric security will be an essential feature on all smart mobile devices. 

This prediction builds on Goode’s previous forecasts that the mobile biometric security market would grow to 39 million users by 2015. Apple’s recent acquisition of fingerprint sensor maker AuthenTec supports this forecast.

 The tool that turned $10,000 into $2,800,000 in 2 years.

Take a look at the swedish firm Fingerprint Cards, a competitor to AuthenTec. The firm debuted last year with a new swipe sensor, with the smallest footprint and lowest power consumption in the biometric industry. They have secured two design wins with major mobile phone manufacturers and are listed on OMX Small Cap in Stockholm. A potential fast grower if manufacturers now begin to implement sensors in smart devices.

Looks tough to buy.

I have a few US small nanocaps that have key IP for this market.
