I agree - very likely. The big move, to $10, will happen in April, when Hill provides their full year 2014 and 2014 forecasts. I believe then wall st, hedge funds, mutual funds, big money will see how undervalued Hill is and give it a valuation of $600M or about $11 to $12 per share. That is what I am having telling folks here for a while, $5 is nothing, Hill is easily worth well north of $10 and so a double from here is in the cards and likely to occur in next 2 to 3 months!! Remember Hill went from $2 to $19 in 10 months several years ago - that was on much less opportunities, sales, and EPS!!
I agree things are looking very bright for HILL. Have been long since Jan 2011. Rode it up some and down a lot. Saw it sell off on earnings several times, but the earnings and managements attitude were nothing to write home about for the next couple years. I bought in on the value of their patent portfolio. Looks like its finally coming to fruition. Management has stated that the current feel is much like the run to 19 that happened a few years back as you pointed out. It could gap up on earnings this time around without doubt. However, with the bullishness that abounds around here, it could also see some profit taking on the earnings news if it is not as good as many expect. In either case, I expect if there is any weakness, it will be short lived. It does feel different now. I expect this to be a double from here as well. Just wondering how many are going to be selling on the earnings news. If they do, I am still in the market for more. As a side note, HILL has had some very nice technical signals recently. It broke out of a cup base the week of 1/10. It then formed what ibd calls a short stroke and broke out of that pattern the week of 2/14. HILL immediately formed a 3 weeks tight pattern and broke out of that yesterday on big vol. No doubt that funds are accumulating.
