Whether it happens in the next year, 3 years, or 5 years from now, ITI is on a path which will lead to it being bought out. Revenues continue to grow, they have a number of products that could be huge, and they are in the right business at the right time.
You are a broken record.
Take out the last of the audit expenses and adjusted earnings is a profit of about $800,000 for the quarter.
Fiscal Q2 2015 Highlights vs. Same Year-ago Quarter
Total revenues up 9% to $18.6 million
Roadway Sensors revenues up 16% to a record $10.2 million
Transportation Systems revenues up 6% to $7.3 million
Transportation Systems added $9.7 million in new contracts
Repurchased approximately 145,000 shares of common stock for $243,000
3 years ago this stock was trading at $3.49 a share. At 6.98 that will mean the stock has appreciated 100% in 3 years. On top of that, the company has paid out $1.48/share in dividends in the past 2 years, with another dividend coming in 4 weeks. This amounts to an extra 46%. In the tech sector, 140% growth in 3 years is a good showing.
Alibaba - insanity - that's not an investment, that's a game of roulette...the mother lode of all Chinese frauds.
In the tech sector, things are very cyclical. We can make our period of analysis as long or as short as necessary to make whatever the point is we want to. In 1995, CCUR shares were exactly where they are today - does it really matter? What is important is if the company is undervalued today?
Now, I'm not saying you should buy another 2000 shares of CCUR especially if you feel that you already have enough...a good portfolio should be well diversified. Personally, I wouldn't touch Alibaba - it could be down 50% very quickly. Be sure you keep a few bottles of Pepto within reach.
it was a rhetorical question to which I and most everyone knew the answer.
why have you stopped posting nonstop throughout the day and commenting on the CEO's golf/massage schedule? oh, that's right, you only do that on the days that the price goes down.
so now you're short at $3.08 and $3.11 and down over 5% in just a couple days. congrats!
richard - go to Seeking Alpha, they have all the quarterly conference call transcripts for the past couple years. Though I've been on the webcast for the conference call for the past 8 or so and like hearing the voices and how they are saying things and answering the questions, I get more value out of the transcript after the fact, because my brain doesn't have to process everything as quickly as they say it. If you want to listen to them, the past 4 quarters are on the company website under the Events and Presentations link on the Investors page. If you can spare the time, I think it's really worth it to review them.
I think the company knows much better what it needs to do than you do. I work in the industry, I have seen what happens to companies that say "cloud" just for the sake of doing so. I know that your brainstorming is out in left field. Accounting? What planet are you living on? Do you seriously want to go head to head with Intuit, Oracle, and all the other companies out there who are experts in accounting and accounting (cloud) software. That is an example as to how far out in left field you are - that's not brainstorming, that is PR material.
The company isn't sitting still and if you understood the company you've invested in, maybe you'd be somewhat aware of that.
If you want to give the company ideas, go to the website, go to the Contact Us link, and tell them yourself. You think they're here reading every post for some incredible idea? Don't think so.
If you believe the company is sitting still, and you don't like that, again, you might want to ask yourself why you've invested in it?
The similarities are very apparent for those who have followed both.
Today, SNTA is is just about at the same point PCYC was right before they inked their first partnership, with their first FDA approval following about 6 months after.
Issue is extremely low float resulting from 1 for 10 reverse split - any buying will push shares up. We've seen it many times before.
I look at the financials reported and see a noose that is slowly tightening, currently choking the victim and will soon cut off all air. In the end, no matter what color lipstick management tries to put on this pig, the reality will eventually trump illogical trading.
Higher losses are being posted, they are at the end of their credit lines, is there some sort of magic trick coming to post earnings for the holidays? I really don't think so. The Xmas gift to shareholders will be another round of financing and dilution - at best.
CEOs don't leave when things are going well or the outlook is good.
If you haven't heard a plan in many years, it's because you have not been paying attention. When was the last time you listened to a conference call, or read the transcript afterwards and gave some thought to what was being said? If you like, I can point out the specific statements/facts in some of the transcripts if you're finding it too difficult to pick them out on your own.
richard your points are correct - however, waiting for a DOD recovery is not part of it - it's to grow and become sustainably profitable no matter what happens with the DOD business.
maybe it takes another year or two to fully get there. however, when it happens, we're going to see quarter after quarter of profits being posted - specifically because "the plan" is about growing sales profitably, not taking on money-losing business. if the profit margins are not there, then it's not worth doing and giving product away. this is not Amazon.
I see it differently - completely differently. This management team has been extremely open with their plans, why they were doing it, and how they were doing it. There was enough foresight to see that they could not rely on government business for their bread and butter going forward - the writing was on the wall, they saw it, and took action to move the business away from being so heavily dependent on the government business. Do you see any of that differently?
Honor the name and grow the company? Isn't that exactly what the management and company is doing today? Did you review the numbers in the latest earnings report and see how communications sales are down to almost nothing and commercial sales are picking up? That pickup in commercial sales is specifically taking place because they are introducing new products and selling to new customers. How your reading is that they are doing nothing to grow the company is mind boggling. If you want to simply look at the overall sales numbers, well yes, they have gone done, but that's a matter of new business not growing as fast as the legacy business has declined. The situation is even worse for companies that are totally dependent on government business.
As far as honoring the name - from what I see, they are doing just that. The products they are introducing into the healthcare field are specifically because they are meeting mission critical/quality standards. Don't you see that? How do you feel that the name is not being honored?
Looking forward, with a more diversified product portfolio and more diversified and growing customer list, the company growth and profitability will come back - that's not hope, that's a fact. Is it not apparent that in moving away from government business dependency and looking more to the commercial world there are significantly better prospects for the future? Unfortunately, this will not happen overnight. It takes time and the company is making measurable progress.
