for a continued run up over the long term what with the awards, expanding portfolio of partners, a few new contracts here and there and the continued optimism for long term growth in Big Data. Of course the folks at ATTU still have to execute to make it all happen.
I have been watching this stock for 2 months or so and will likely buy a chunk next week. My only real concern is the lack of patents and not even applying for any. Does this concern you? Maybe the company will be bought out before this becomes an issue, but I think it would be a better take-over candidate if they had something going on regarding patents.
I read about their explanation of why they don't attempt to copywright their software programs. As I recall it is mentioned in their 20-F. You can go there and read their explanation for yourself. Personally it is not a concern for me though you should do your own due dilgence.
Alon who is their biggest shareholder owns under 20% of the stock. He may sell out at some pont since that has been his history. Whether a complete takeover of ATTU is in the cards or not I haven't got a clue. However, they just filed a $20 million dollar mixed shelf offering so I think they could be looking for another acquisition.
