The article focuses on small technology firms that are predicted by San Francisco, Califonia-based investment firm Thomas Weisel Partners to have big revenue growth. Weisel analysts came up with a list of their favorite tech stocks, each with less than a $2 billion market cap and covered by very few on Wall Street. Many of them have high price/earnings ratios. Sapient's earnings are minuscule,so its multiple is astronomical. Advanced Analogic Technologies and Salary.com are losing money. However, they all boast sales expanding at a double-digit clip.
