    before being a defense security company

    this company was a telecommunications provider services and equipment. If they stayed with that model, they would be out of business now. It's been difficult during the Demarco years I know, but the model looks good if they can manage the debt. Not sure about the telecom industry pitfalls? Check the fortunes of Lucent now Alcatel Lucent, total debacle, from $70 a share to nothing and loss of much more wealth than Kratos

    Sentiment: Hold

      Comparing a company that lost 100% of its value to another that "only" lost 96% of its value is hardly a thesis for investing in the latter. Good luck, though! {:-)

      Sentiment: Strong Sell

      • your facts are irrefutable. but didn't he have success with his previous company? Titan? Company grew and was bought out I think. It seems like there's a steady in flow of contracts here with some diversity coming into play. If they can get the debt/cash flow under control the equity model looks solid, if, if investors can withstand the short plays at earnings report time. The cash situation is primary risk here IMHO

        Sentiment: Hold
