    Was hoping to see at least guidance in line with consensus for 2013 but, as investors know, even above line guidance does not mean much if the market as a whole does not do well. Antares is now a very big deal but I still wonder how much of the future of the company should rest on this.

    Sentiment: Hold

    • Hi Tom...hope all is well.
      The numbers were good, but you are right . Too much reliance on the Antares, which if I read correctly, will have the demo delayed until 2013. Seems the capsule will not be delivered until sometime inext year.

      Sentiment: Buy

      • Hi guys. Although I am out of ORB for awhile, I continue to follow them. I concur that ORB has a pretty good book of business right now without COTS but a lot is riding on Antares for the future IMHO. Especially in light of Musk's stunning success with SpaceX (and Tesla). Sort of a Tortoise vs Hare scenario? I would like to get back in again someday.

        Short term the stock might get a bounce here at the 200 day sma:;range=6m;compare=;indicator=sma%2850,20,200%29+volume;charttype=area;crosshair=on;ohlcvalues=0;logscale=off;source=undefined;

        Good luck.
