As of February, Lojack wants to turn aspiring motorcycle thieves into uneasy riders. That is when the company introduced a version of its stolen-vehicle-recovery system for crotch rockets. As with cars, Lojack installs a hidden transmitter that can be activated by the police when the vehicle is reported as stolen. The cops can then trail the bad guys and recover the wheels. If only there were such a system to catch stray socks.

These companies represent the fifth graduating class of the annual FSB 100. They
have been screened just as the others were: Zacks, a financial research firm, identified companies with annual revenue of less than $200 million and a stock price of more than $1 and ranked them based on the past three years' earnings growth, revenue growth, and stock performance. We excluded banks and real estate firms, which would otherwise overrun the list.
How we pick the 25 richest executives
Call them mini-Buffetts: the executives who hold major stakes in their companies on the FSB 100 list. We hired Equilar, an executive-compensation research firm in San Mateo, Calif., to identify them and review the proxy statements of every
company on the list. The numbers below include all shares of stock owned outright, plus all vested options. (We ignored options that haven't vested.) Please, no hitting these folks up for loans.
