    very very strong earnings just came out...

    ...the made $2.39/share on an after tax basis for the December quarter if you ex out the one time large tax gain and the one time LIFO adjustment. Unlike prior quarters, this $2.39 is fully taxed.

    Backlog was up $19.5 million year over year (to $67.4 million from $47.9 million), and up just a tad over the Sept 30 backlog of $67.1 million. Since the backog remains high, we should expect more strong quarters ahead.

    Book Value is at $25.65 per share, another solid number.

    A 10 p/e would take MUEL to $95/share. Just a 7 p/e would double MUEL from its current $33 to $66/share.

    Of course there are only a total of 1,237,591 shares outstanding...probably less than a million in the public float. So if MUEL ever sees some real volume, or catches the eye of those low float traders....who knows where this thing could go.

    • Yes, great results! Looks like the hard EPS number for full year 2013 was $6.80 fully taxed. Sets them up for an easy comp for Q1. Could they really make over $8 for full year 2014? Even at this stock's historically stingy multiple, it should be a lot higher. Could a reinstated dividend and a return to Nasdaq be in the cards?

      Sentiment: Strong Buy
