    I think we are about ready for a strong technical bounce.

    • Tom,

      Thank you for the recap on Brookwood's textile gains/margins in the past several years.

      I wonder whether Washington's plans for a "leaner meaner" military will be a factor in the close future for Brookwood.

      I also wonder how many shares the solitary shareholder held.

      With gratitude,

    • joeevani,

      This is the limit of my knowledge about Brookwood Group textile business:

      2004 2003 2002 Gain

      Sales $136 M 104 M 84 M 31 M/19 M

      Cost $102 M. 83 M. 71 M.

      Profit 26.4 % 20.5 % 15.7 %

      Adm/Sales $15 M. 14.7 M. 11.2 M.

      As you can see, sales and profit margins
      increased substancialy in 2004.

      The 1st quarter 2005 had a nice bump up in
      revenues but profit margins declined due to
      increased royalty expenses in sales of
      military products.

      By the way, I asked Mary at IR who the customer was but she was not allowed to say
      anything more than what's in the annual report.

      She also said there was only one shareholder at
      the Annual Meeting!



    • I couldn't resist. I bought another 100 at $118, but I really wish I'd sold back at $159 and then bought all my shares back at this price.

      c'est la vie
