Nice new 52-week high today .... and have noticed since earnings last week the NSDQ Market Maker has been scrambling to find shares and has been trying to sit on the high Bid without chasing the Ask ... not working for them as their not picking much up on the Bid .... as most trades are directed at the Ask. Very healthy dynamic for HURC which is trading at a very attractive multiple.
I've been happily holding for months, and will continue to do so for a long time. Great company, great value even in the thirties, incredibly low shares outstanding. That's a recipe for outsized gains, my fine furry financial friends.
Forunately or unfortunately we've been accumulating since 2006 -- know the industry and in particular this Company well. Our investment was predicated 60% as a macro on the industry space and 40% specific to HURC because of it's competitive position in Germany. With the industry sector heating up nicely the overall equities are getting a nice lift. However, the high-end of this sector will continue to heat-up further as those that put more of a value proposition on set-up productivity as labor-rates and technical skills are becoming more of a relative issue today than at any time in the past -- especially in the lower labor cost jurisdictions (e.g., SE Asia) ..... thus, HURC is a superior holding than other companies competing more on unit price (e.g. HDNG).
