Hit #79

Intrado (TRDO), a provider of 911 emergency telecommunication support services, is being acquired by West Corp for $26/share.
This cash transaction amounts to a 21.8% premium over my average cost of $21.34/share.

While on emergency services, a recent IPO, Emergency Medical Services (EMS), is a good long-term investment. The stock has so far not received much attention and is still going for close to the offering price. EMS runs the widely-recognised American Medical Response, AMR ambulance services.

Air Methods (AIRM), is also similarly attractive, though it has been around for a while as a public company and has seen its stock triple over the last year or so.
