And as I mentioned above, CETX has several potential breakout catalysts of note. Check them out:
No. 1 CETX Potential Catalyst - A Strong $23 Target From Dawson James Signals Significant Upside Potential
In March, Jason Kolbert, an analyst with Dawson James Securities, reiterated his $23 target on CETX.
From Wednesday's closing valuation, that provides CETX with over 100% potential upside.
Here's some key highlights from the report:
Roughneck AI: Cemtrex – This is a Novel Edge-based Analytics Provide More Efficient Searches and Real Time, Meaningful Alarms. The advanced security technology and industrial services company released a new suite of AI-based analytics in an enhanced Vicon Roughneck AI Camera series, further improving its unified VMS platform for controlling video, access control, license plate recognition (LPR), and other integrated applications.
What is it? Vicon’s enhanced lineup of Roughneck AI Cameras and latest VMS release — Valerus 23.1 — combine to deliver powerful object classification, tracking, recording and forensic searching. Vicon’s Roughneck AI Cameras, with impressive features including advanced analytics, smart/adaptive IR, Starlight low-light technology, and -40° operating temps, now include built-in AI-based analytics. Vicon’s AI-based analytics intelligently identify people and vehicles to help customers perform more meaningful searches in Valerus and diminish nuisance alarms triggered by irrelevant motion. This tight integration between its enhanced cameras and Valerus further improves Vicon’s established position as an end-to-end solutions provider.
We See Vicon as the Future of Cemtrex: Vicon is a global leader in advanced security and surveillance technology designed to safeguard businesses, schools, municipalities, hospitals and cities across the world. The company specializes in engineering complete security solutions that simplify deployment, operation, and ongoing maintenance. A good example is the company’s four-in-one camera system that connects with one simple cable. The company today has over 10,000 installations and five decades of experience. The company typically operates in corrections (prisons), education, healthcare, government, law enforcement, property management, and a host of other applications. The Advanced Technologies segment generated approximately $29M in revenues for fiscal (Sept.) 2022. Management has guided to a 16% growth rate ($28M in fiscal 2023).
Advanced Industrial Services: This business includes rigging and Millwrighting, Process Piping, Electrical Services, Custom Fabrication, Transportation and Warehousing and Project Management. This unit generated approximately $21M in revenues for the fiscal (Sept.) year 2022. Management guided to nominal growth of 3% this year.
Valuation: We project our model out to 2032. We lower our discount rate from 30% to 15%. We apply this in our Free Cash Flow to the Firm (FCFF), discounted EPS (dEPS), and Sum-ofthe-Parts (SOP) models. We use a fully diluted outyear share count assuming multiple raises. The result is equal-weighted and averaged and rounded to the nearest whole number to derive our 12-month projected price target of $23.0.

Cemtrex Announces Vicon End-to-End Security System Order for Next Generation Zero-Carbon Prison System in United Kingdom
$0.8Mn in Vicon Surveillance Equipment with Latest Smart Technologies to Better Protect Prisoners, Staff and Public
Brooklyn, NY, March 22, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cemtrex Inc. (NASDAQ: CETX, CETXP), an advanced security technology and industrial services company, has received a $0.8Mn order through Vicon Industries for a new prison being built in the United Kingdom to install a full end-to-end system of Vicon’s surveillance products including hardware and software.
The new Category C prison, with cell space for 1,400 prisoners, has been designed to incorporate the latest smart technologies to better protect prisoners, staff and the public. It will also be the first new prison in the U.K. set to operate as zero-carbon in the future, with an all-electric design, solar panels, heat pumps and energy-efficient lighting systems.
The new system from Vicon will include state-of-the-art video surveillance security capabilities utilizing the Valerus Video Management System (VMS) and award-winning Roughneck cameras and servers. The Roughneck is a powerfully advanced, NDAA-compliant, camera lineup designed for effortless remote configuration, eliminating tedious and frustrating installations. This extensive line of vandal-resistant cameras provides models for every application, ranging from corner-mounted cameras for in-cell use and super-high resolution, hemispheric models that can capture every detail in larger spaces like mess halls and exercise yards. The order is expected to be shipped partially in the current quarter and into the following quarter. Details of the customer were not provided due to confidentiality agreements in place.
“We are delighted to garner another major enterprise, mission critical project with this full system order for Vicon’s surveillance solutions. From penitentiaries in the U.S. to the U.K., our internationally recognized brand Vicon keeps operations safe for prisoners, workers, and visitors,” said Saagar Govil, Chairman and CEO of Cemtrex. “The order also reaffirms our expectation for driving 16% revenue growth to $28Mn this year for Vicon. In the U.S and internationally, corrections facilities are increasingly focusing on deploying the latest and greatest technologies and our Valerus system is an example of that. Vicon’s full-featured video management systems are engineered to streamline every aspect of the security operation. We expect to see increasing demand as the corrections industry continues to in-vest into their operations in newer and more efficient technology."
