    annual meeting presentation

    I found slides disappointing. Nothing negative, but it seems to me that in the past they provided new info, while this year they seemed a rehash of known numbers.

    • One thing I noticed when comparing the 2006 and 2007 presentations was a fairly significant change in the makeup of the shareholders. Institutional was up 14% and individual was down 14%. Not sure what that means, but seems like the trading float is getting smaller.

      Indiv-- 33% 19%
      Instit-- 54% 69%
      Insider 13% 12%

      • Interesting comment. I believe money has been moving into small cap funds, but if that were the only explanation, the stock price should have moved up. I was surprised at April's short interest.
        Was I correct that last year's presentation was more informative, or did I confuse the annual meeting and investor meeting presentation?
        In the Feb 2007 investor presentation, a slide talks of "re-establishing" metalcasting business in Europe. Any more info on that in the actual presentation?
