blog "IPG Photonics – growth, cash, markets and technology"
Hi, I've blogged about IPG, but the Wordpress site isn't on Yahoo's whitelist. If you want to read it, try to find this older blog:
"IPG Photonics – growth, a miss, opportunity and threat"
When I search for that, Google finds the article, and Yahoo finds the index page with "Index | kitchensinkinvestor", but either will get to the site with the new post about IPG.
I could give more clues but I don't know what might upset moderators or software.
I hope you like the new post, if you go through all that! It's got charts showing long term growth, and I checked the 2012 10-K for commitments (there's not a lot). Then there's some general laser tech stories, with odd ones near the end, finishing with a Star Trek connection.
Super research and summaries on your part. Major LOL re "two warships at the top with a shopping basket underneath", saw that. Guess we'll have to watch TeraDiode. I was interested in your note in the "threat" piece re: "June 2012, regained full ownership of Russia-based subsidiary, NTO IRE-Polus, a pioneer in parallel pumping, allowing multiple diodes to be coupled to pump a single fiber", interested if power there can multiplied to address issues presented by the "disk" people.
