    OT - MLAB and MOCO

    Looking forward to ATRI's earnings announcement on 2/16. Been buying (and holding) since June 2010.

    In other news...Was doing some micro cap stock screening recently and found two companies that, like ATRI, appear to be solid growers with sound fundamentals (namely, MLAB and MOCO.) Strangely, both of these companies pay out more than 25% of their earnings as dividends. I'm thinking they might have limited growth prospects as the companies can't find anything better to do with a significant portion of free cash flow than pay S/H's. Have only done about 30 minutes of DD on each but wanted to get some feedback from the esteemed ATRI investors on this board.

    Thanks in advance for any insight you can offer.

    • Upon further analysis, I see that MLAB's recent revenue and EPS growth is driven significantly by an acquisition in late 2010. As a result, its reported growth rate is greatly in excess of its organic growth. It will be interesting to see how the Q1 2012 results compare to the Q1 2011 results. We'll get a look at whether MLAB has successfuly integrated the new product line.
