    Check trades at market open - possibly a Seeking Alpha pump and dump article. If it is Seeking Alpha, we'll know within 24 hours.

    Be cautious and make money. The three or four folks here know the company and stock better.

    Value stocks swept along

    yes, it has attributes of both growth and value stocks. the PE is not out of line as a growth stock.

    as you rightly point out, as far as the value stock qualities, I am looking at the balance sheet and fundamentals. when I see 30%+ cash as a percentage of the stock price, trading at close to book value, no debt, the buyback, etc. - these things scream value stock to me - it is being underpriced by the market - likely as a result of the (current) high PE, it is considered tech, and it's just getting swept along with the other NASDAQ tech stocks.

    I'm confident earnings will be picking up as the year progresses. In the mean time, though difficult seeing the share price weakness, I have no worries holding it in my portfolio.

    I ran into some logistic problems as well and I ended up paying the $30 fee for the 440 shares in my smaller account but wasn't able to get the 2200 shares in my larger account which I wanted more. Will just put my GTC order out there again below $2 and hope I get lucky.

    Time to purchase ONB shares

    You can believe whatever you like. My posts are here for all to see when I was buying and I when I sold. I made my profits in a matter of weeks. Clearly that disturbs you.

    I was silent for the longest time? How long is "the longest time"? Certainly not the years you claim the shares have not been consistently over $15. But, does it matter? I posted the price when I bought, I told you the shares would go back over $15 and you moaned like a little girl in heat. Why wouldn't I have sold when the shares were back over $15 - even if it was for a short time? Maybe I listened to your post about how the shares have not been consistently above $15 is years?

    Yet, the profit was minor in relation to the huge amount I made on UBMI buying during the second half of 2013 until the buyout announcement.

    Whether you choose believe me or not is no concern of mine - bottom line of my brokerage account is all that matters.

    You just continue posting your smack because of whatever vendetta you have against this bank. I'm sure that it brings you some kind of joy, along with attacking anyone who might have a non-negative thought regarding it.

    Very upbeat and optimistic with outlook.

    Key point, even with weak government business, they are still doing ok and continuing to diversify. Government orders are coming in, but they are dragging out the final approvals/signoffs.

    I want to buy more shares lower, but questionable how low shares will go now with buyback in place.

    Shares were in account today. Ironically, broker did not charge me the fee - so I'm happy. $30 obviously wasn't going to break the bank, however, for a small number of shares it obviously increases the basis.

    Apparently, some Average Joes were on the loose this morning Selling in May, not only in PDEX but most other companies. Similar happened on May 1 last year and we saw what happened the remainder of the year.

    and closing/leaving Poland and taking charges.

    As you can see from the headlines, every time a company in same segment gets a Zacks review, BMRA is thrown in the trailer as a Strong Buy recommendation to consider.

    Profitable, with no debt, cash, positive cash flow, good outlook, share buyback, CEO buys shares, etc.

    Can only keep saying it so many times before you begin to sound stupid to yourself!

    It's one of the best holdings in my portfolio from a fundamental and outllok perspective and it's a crime that other stuff that is not as good is outperforming it.

    Will just need to be patient a while longer and keep nibbling on more shares.

    outllok = outlook

  • Assuming we go by the bank's non-GAAP numbers and take EPS at 35 cents, annualize it, and we have $1.40/share. That gives a PE of 17 today - which is too high for a bank at this time. Similar bank PEs at this time are in the 12 to 15 range. There are bargains out there trading closer tangible book value (BDGE is below $14) , with PE close to 10, and offering similar to slightly higher dividends.

    Bottom line, BDGE is still overpriced garbage and should be trading no higher than $20.00 - giving PE at 14.3

    The growth is not sufficient to justify the premium...overpriced.

  • How many vests do you suppose they sell when they go for $13,000 to $15,000 a pop?

    I can't imagine insurance providers racing to line up for them - especially under ACA - people have $5000 annual deductibles (and higher) and they can't afford it.

    Oh, then there's the medical device tax that gets slapped on it as well.

    good post/info.

    it is difficult watching ITI get whacked and pulled down along with the market and tech shares - it's like the company itself doesn't really matter at this time. The only way it stops is with the earnings announcement showing a "good" quarter (just has to not be awful compared to what everyone else is turning in) and providing good outlook for the next quarter and remainder of the year. This happened with a couple other of my holdings - they announced "not awful" earnings and good outlook and the dive immediately changed direction. Even other companies where the shares were hammered going into the earnings announcement (seems to be the theme this quarter) - immediate reversal, just by posting a "not awful" quarter.

    considering what is going on in the market in general, ITI can approach a number of peers/competitors and possibly scoop one of them up cheaply at this time. there are two that I specifically know of that are in the dumps and ripe for acquisition and cost cutting.
