I don't know if you listened to the conference call or not, but I was impressed with management's focus on the bottom line. I believe the analysts were too. I wouldn't be at all surprised to see a minor upgrade or two.
Although Humphreys said they had a new executive search firm looking for a new CEO, I did feel he was draging his feet on the matter.
Also of note, it was stated that Itron had a pilot project with Southern Calif. Edison.
I didn't take any notes so don't ask me for any further info. Actually it was the fist time that I listened to one of Itron's conf. calls. skep
