    I also agree the stock is fairly priced "here" "today" "now". BUT, it will still be higher this time next year, the dividend will increase, and there will most likely be a special along the way. Also, I agree it is impossible to liquidate a large position w/o slitting your own wrists, or to accumulate a sizable amount without overpaying. I bought most of mine at the ask over time, but I ALWAYS have an open order $.05 to $.08 below the bid and have gotten lucky a few times, I would guess I have bought this 75 times? 114K @ .95 This is part of my retirement income, AMNF pays me +/- $4.25 an hour to sit and watch it. So far it has bought me a 2012 Jeep, a snow blower, a wine trip, a sewer snake, and a LOT of beer. I have never seen their products in person since I am east coast but I love them just the same!!

    Sentiment: Buy

    Patience needed

    AMNF does take baby steps, however I think the new products are going to accelerate earnings at a pace that will not be ignored. They have added more products in the last 6 months than the have in the last 10 years. I think sales are going to reach escape velocity as grocery cases start filling with boxes of Armanino selections. I will be shocked if we are not at $2.25 or higher next Christmas. The 3 months between quarterly reports seems like years to me, and if the price does not move much for more than a week it makes me nuts. It's a good thing AMNF divy's are paying for my beer & wine!

    New products?

    It seems to me they are fleshing out their product offering with "filled" frozen pastas. The new equipment must be used to "fill" different pasta shapes with a variety of fillings. I would think these would be a huge seller into institutional accounts, and do well in super markets also. I think Q1 & Q2 results are going to be GONZO. They can only sell the same thing to the same people unless they add new items or expand their geographic foot print. Hopefully they are doing both effectively. Our little boutique pesto shop is growing up into quite the profitable cash machine. Look for a special divy and another dividend increase at some point in 2014. And say goodbye to $2.00 stock prices!

    Sentiment: Buy

    All food companies are not created equal. Both pay 3-4% divy, one beats earnings and one misses. One covers it's divy +62%, one can't cover it's divy with earnings. AMNF & KRFT, I own both. Kraft's 4th qrtr was miserable "Q4 earnings of $0.430 have been announced, missing analyst estimates by -$0.190." This won't cover their $.52 divy. A Valentines Day analogy: I won't be asking Kraft for another date, I am going to ask Armanino to marry me!!

    Report is out $.026

    Earnings of .026 minus a divy of .016 leaves a penny in the bank for just the 4th qrtr. The board is NOT going to sit on that for long, we are going to be receiving a special divy within 6 months IMHO. This is why I bought and hold Armanino. In the last 4 or 5 years I have never been disappointed.
