Well, look at that! The stock is up 35% from the time that I suggested that it was a dog last month. Further evidence that I that I have no idea what I'm talking about when it comes to picking individual stocks. Nice job Zygo!
You're right. Zygo is a great American company. It has wonderful products and very talented people working for it. I've long been an admirer of Zygo, I'm just saying that it's stock performance could use some help. $100/shr stock to $14 or whatever in recent trading - come on.
The previous CEO, Bruce Robinson, did little to improve Zygo's lot in life (spending a ridiculous sum on Tera-Optics just to shutter it a year later was only one of many mis-steps). The new CEO has a long history in this industry and proven successful track record. I wish all the best for Chris and the other fine people at Zygo and I sincerely hope that their stock benefits from their hard work.
OK, I totally recant my last post. Buy Zygo's stock!
