    value play?

    Well Grif, you'd be a fool not to have such
    feelings given the PAST performance of ITRI.

    Is
    Chesser all that slow given where he's coming from and
    where Itron's at?? I mean that Board at Itron has
    really got to be suspect. I'm sure Chesser has to
    interact very carefully with them. Being an outside
    shareholder with no internal info sure has its
    RISKS!

    I had formal training as a chemist and also some
    experience as such, as far as starting an analytical
    services company. That was years ago. I haven't been
    "employed" for over 30 years now.

    I would guess
    selling a non-standard product has its rewards as well as
    risks, even though they may be somewhat hedged.
    Commodity products also have their drawbacks from a
    competitive point of view unless you have a standardized
    monopoly.

    A lot of engineers, heck most engineers, don't
    necessarily make good businessmen because of their technical
    and problem solving approach to matters of a more
    humanistic nature. Maybe we can just agree to disagree on
    this point.

    As far as further investing in
    Itron is concerned, I haven't done any recently[well
    maybe a thousand shares]and don't plan on doing so.
    There really has been a lack of communication as you
    mention. Anyway, I will accept any luck offered as I do
    realize the risky nature of my current position.ggg skep
