    • I bought in today,this is a great company,flying so far below the radar screen,that it's almost invisible.And that's what makes it so attractive,very little manipulation,trading on fundamentals,instead of innuendo,and rumors..

      Sentiment: Buy

    • Lots of recent bad news that, of course, they tried to sugarcoat.

      I love how they kept referring to their "customer mix" in their release. What they DIDN'T say out loud is that they are gradually (over the next few months) losing one of their biggest ATM customers ("big Blue") to DBD's competitors, because that customer was not satisfied with DBD's deposit automation offerings. That's 1700+ ATMs in the US, which is not an insignificant amount. While the service profit margin for that particular customer was pretty scant, that represents a huge loss of service workload.

      Add that the revenue boost they received over the last couple of years for ADA upgrades has mostly dried up, and their bread-and-butter business does not have a great outlook in the near term.

      Not to mention that they scrapped their long-planned new HQ building and they are eliminating 500 positions/employees, well, there you go...
