    Well....my prediction that FYE June 2014 would be the breakout/turnaround year for Napco now appears to be trashed. Having gone from an intra-year stock price high of $7.70 to the current $4.95 price certainly would seem to confirm Napco is in a free fall situation. At some point I hope the company learns that press releases which purposely avoid the subject of current operations or current product launches just won't reverse a downward stock price trend.

    One can only assume the lack of news on businss conditions, major customer orders, etc. is an indication there is nothing to crow about.

    So far the month of June 2014 has not been good for Napco's stock price. Month-to-date the share price, as of Friday, June 20 is down 17.6%. While the company continues to issue periodic press releases on such things as June being burglary month, etc., there has not been any news of substance....a new product release, a major customer order, an update on June 2014 operations, etc.

    Updated information on current operations drives stock prices and I for one have been waiting for the confirmation of a major customer contract/purchase which so far has apparently not taken place. The company in previous conference calls had stressed they would provide information on any significant new customer orders when they were booked and I believed them.

    Maybe the stock price decline is due to short term investors moving from Napco stock to perceived "greener pastures."

    In either case, for some reason the Napco stock price has, at least temporarily, lost its upward momentum and, in my opinion, returned to just being a "hold."

    Down 20 cents

    Scottoo....I keep waiting for the announcement of significant institutional orders which should be being booked this quarter and yet only silence from the company. Remember last June quarter they had significant revenue impact from the largest order booked in NSSC's history. Going to be tough to match or exceed June qtr. 2013 revenues without another significant booking soon. Time is running out.

    Maybe a couple of "market orders" rather than "limit orders."

    All of a sudden we have a big stock price jump. Any thoughts out there?

    At this price, the stock is a bargain

    Please in the future when you make such a statement .....support it with your logic and facts that backup "the stock is a bargain at $5.75."

    Fact, they have now put on the board two successive mediocre quarters of operating results and one can certainly question whether the company is in fact being impacted by undisclosed headwinds? You can blame weather but also recognize that the prior year quarterly comparatives were still suffering from the negative impacts of hurricane Sandy. So we are seeing improvements, but over weak comparisons.

    The use of percentage improvements rather than numbers, in my mind, is an attempt to exagerate the growth story for the recurring revenues. Small dollar improvements on a small dollar base number is far less impressive than use of percentage amounts such as 94% higher than a year ago. Why do they refuse to put numbers out there for the recurring revenue amounts included in sales? It appears transparency to shareholders and the investment community is not a company priority at the moment and also, it now appears they chose to eliminate the paper trail covering the conference call remarks and question/answer session (previously released on Seeking Alpha). Shareholders and the investment community seek more information not less!

    Conference Call Transcript?

    Scottoo i was disappointed for the second quarter in a row and have concerns that the only time NSSC surprises positively is when they get a huge one time order like we saw in the June and Sept quarters last year. The operational momentum has definitely tapered back and now it appears they have elected to cut back on investor information by discontinuing the conference call transcript.

    I am surprised the transcript covering Napco's conference call yesterday has not been released on Seeking Alpha. I hope that there is only a delay involved rather than the NSSC management team electing to discontinue the practice.
