SAN DIEGO — Nature of business: Designs, makes and markets electronic components and modules Total employees: 3,300 In Orange County: None Stock listing in The Times: On NASDAQ "PulseEn" Ticker symbol: "PLSE" Friday's stock close: $7.25 One-week change: Down $1 Analyst review: "Pulse is in a period of transition. In the past, much of its revenue had come from more traditional data processing areas such as mainframes; but in recent years, more revenue is coming from networking which is rapidly growing industry. Pulse has been smart of enough to recognize that it had to move into growth areas. It is putting more money into R&D and it would not surprise me if it made an acquisition that would compliment that move. Can it grow at 10%, 20% or 25% a year? Yes, it can, once it gets the other areas growing. In the meantime it has to grapple with the short term. Once Pulse moves out of this transition period, it has the ability to provide good solid growth going forward." Cecilia Brancato, analyst Oppenheimer & Co.
