    Results look solid, further confirms that ATRI is back on the solid growth track. Looks like a new product coming in cardiovascular.

    • I am a bit surprised stock price didn't move up more. Are there earning forecasts published anywhere? (now that Alex doesn't publish his). Perhaps, one time boost to earnings last year confused people comparing year over year, but that would be odd.

      • I wish I had time to make one, but it gets harder and harder to make time for something the boss doesn't pay me to do!

        It's nice to know that it is missed, however.

        All that said, I'm keeping up with the numbers (more or less...with some lag), and the continued improvement in margins continues to reach levels that I never imagined were possible. It certainly is a tribute to the company's management (and its rank and file employees all up and down the line).

        It certainly looks as if we will top the $14/share level this year, though.


    • The company is definitely laying down the growth track for the next few years by implementing an investment plan with both physical equipment [as they mentioned with higher depreciation over the past year or so] and R&D expenses. This is smart to ensure market position and technological leadership, and of course, they have the balance sheet to do whatever they want.

      So we might see continued nice top line growth with bottom line growth tracking closer tot the top line.

      They are still buying in shares, though it remains difficult as always because of the restrictions. I think the stock still trades at a significant discount to private market value, though a bit less of course with the recent rally.

      2014 will be a good year to evaluate as the weakness of 2012 and the easy comparisons of this year will be in the past.
