    Hitting 40+ Tomorrow

    4 things.

    Housing has little impact on sales of encore's main horse

    Yes copper prices have gone up, but the cost of installable wire has also doubled to trippled in the last 6 months

    I don't have enough skilled employees to run all of the work opportunities I have comming up. I have to turn down work based on volume.

    Wire sales lag construction contracts by atleast 8 months. The "skin" of the building has to be up before wire is pulled. Drive around town and look for any exposed steel... that is another wire order in the making.
