AeroVironment, Inc. (AVAV) Message Board

  • iamnathan iamnathan Jan 30, 2013 11:26 AM Flag

    This isn't a very active message board. Is that a reflection of the performance of the company and share price ?

    Are there any shareholders around here?

    • I am a new shareholder and just purchased some shares at 22.79. I think this is the one growth area of defense even with cuts. I feel the stock is getting punished for being in the defense sector right now but I dont see spending on drones being cut back. The obama administration just announced it wants a new drone base in north africa. I also see more use of portable drones by local law enforcement. If avav were to hit the lows again I would be loading up on shares. And I see the little activity on this board as a good thing before the crowd shows up.

      • I just bought today, but must confess that I haven't done enough research to see if this company secures contracts to sell a decent fraction of the drones that all levels of the government buys.

        I would think that the big defense contractors get most of the huge and lucrative contracts, as they have the lobbyists, size and track record to win larger contracts.

        Have you looked into that information?
