IMO just a matter of time before DHR or A continue their acquisition sprees.
IMO if that did happen it sure would give the stock a boost of creditability. . However to me. It would be more likely that they would be for protecting their interests in the venture. Kodak last I knew was concentrating on divestitures rather than acquisitions. IMO they would more likely be concentrating on acquiring profitable companies to advantageously use any tax loss carry forwards. In hindsight if they didn't sell Sterling drug and spinoff Eastman chemical there wouldn't have been a chapter 11, but pension liability would still have been a big problem.
Myself being a past Gradall shareholder eventually being acquired by Alamo Via JLG . The question is now will Alamo be interested in ARTW as it stands. Vessels IMO most likely would have to go. Might not be the right McConnell, but Alamo owns the mower brand.

RE: Worthington call -"We had a very good second quarter with strong results from Steel Processing and solid results from Pressure Cylinders and our joint ventures," said John McConnell, Chairman and CEO. "We are now positioning our businesses under one single brand, Worthington Industries. The Company is growing organically and through acquisitions, providing us with new platforms and new markets. As a result, we want to make sure our brand is front and center for our customers and shareholders."
You can't forget this guy
RE:Marc Andreessen is clearly blown away by Google Glass and is ready to fund some awesome Glass startups.
He's called Google's new wearable computing device "magical."
It's not just a fancy gadget, Glass is going to be a game changer for certain industries like health care, the cofounder of Andreessen Horowitz said in an interview on Bloomberg West
Both LG and Samsung settled their patent dispute with Kodak before they were sold. Picture this someday. More digital photos being taken with glasses. Who likes fooling with the darn camera button on a cell phone. This when your trying to capture the moment. Be that I live in the Rochester area. IMO maybe there's still a chance for Kodak being a partner. Being there undergoing some trouble with there UNXL venture. IMO Kodak has to take more risks now. They saw what happened when you try and hold onto your mainstays (film and Digital camera's)
I'd guess Mario's doing a little window dressing. Nothing bigger than 7900 trade, and some multiple thousand ones. You can go back to sleep till the volume spikes. This until SKY has some 100,000 + volume days in a row. A new 52 week high today can't hurt getting the stock on the radar.
I'm guessing it's LG.
However I wish it was Samsung.
Good point Mr Lucky. RE: The company needs funding- Have you been reading my SI VUZI board.
Key point in the PR-a potential OEM partner.
BTW-FWIW- I am a small shareholder here. I'm hoping Paul Travers can pull a rabbit out of his hat.
IMO the reverse split (market valuation)showed me they were more serious about finding funding. The last infusion was rather pitiful. IMO
However I'm betting there patents and existing products are strong enough to find a good partner for future funding. It's better than a big player staring from scratch. An equity stake by a partner would be a plus.. Paul still has stock in the company so I'll throw the dice.
Good thought. I currently know my purchase here is like playing Keno. The game is still running. IMO your current investment successes and failures will help you decide how far outside your comfort zone you can go. I'm portfolio diversified and allocated here to my personal risk liking, so I can play. With that in mind. A gambling loss is only deductible to the extent of your gains. A stock loss is fully deductible within IRS guidelines. The limits used as a offset or a carry-forward.
GITY-Good investing to you..
There are no #$%$urances, and I am a shareholder. That's why most every company has their legal dept draw up a cover your #$%$ disclosure as it relate to forward guidance. IMO this company needs defense orders for any meaningful significant growth and profitability.. The current business model was forces upon them due to defense cut/ sequester and defense budget cuts. Lets hope Harris & Other defense companies can get some orders subcontracted to ULBI this year. The saving grace here. The insiders have their money at risk. They've brought the company to be somewhat profitable on a lower sales level. If the company starts receiving some defense orders of size. I wouldn't be surprised to see Mike POPIELEC take this private.
Alamo Group Inc. has announced plans to acquire parts of Specialized Industries LP.
The New Berlin, Wis.-based company manufactures vacuum trucks and snow removal equipment and operates a dealer-distribution company in the New England area, according to a U.S. Securities and Exchange filing.
Alamo Group intends to purchase the three divisions for nearly $186 million, the filing reads.
Alamo Group is a manufacturer and distributor of right-of-way maintenance and agricultural equipment.
IMO-Book sounds about right to me. Maybe a corporate real estate agent can Google map the building and land see if the building and land are worth more than there carried on the books for. I think the company most likely can be Chinaized for it's products by a new buyer. This should lower it's break even point. IMO the Cobra name itself is a very good intangible asset. Also the tax loss carry forwards to shelter earnings, when there are earnings.
FWIW- It's to bad. Made in America doesn't dispel the fact consumers will pay extra money for it. Even Apple knows this. It's no myth that shareholders here need a good return on their investment. As a shareholder, my investment here is unsecured. I'm fairly sure the banks who are lending money now are. How much more time do shareholders give management for a turnaround?
Yes, I am long. Recent sale should bring in about 80 mill in cash. On the speculative appeal side. IMO, much depends on how much hedge funds want to exercise activism. A special dividend would be nice, but putting the money back in to start growth or buy back shares is more likely. This stock is one rare recent additions. Otherwise, I've been cashing out of this market over the last six months. IMO Newbie traders haven't any idea what a bear market is yet. I've seen what happened in 1987. If your technically inclined, you might as you said, wait for a better opportunity.
Twitter was my most logical. Heck if they use stock for a hypothetical purchase. It would be 1/2 price now. Anyway I receive my Christmas gift today. My XRTX has a formal purchase offer.
Now it Segates turn. Cray or IBM how about a higher bid for a Shareholders Christmas gift?
OK-Shareholders will take anything profitable, including medical.
7:00 am Ultralife to commence shipments under $6.7 mln medical cart contract (ULBI)
I agree wholeheartedly. The recent Omnicom, Publicis merger IMO shows consolidation is needed to compete with search & social.
I noticed you posted this after Oracle bought Responsys For 1.5 Billion. Heck Larry E. might even come back here. That Purchase will leave Larry about 30 Billion in cash.
I didn't see the shop around. What would the incentive be when the board is in Baker Streets pocket. Heck I'll take Cray stock instead of cash for the same price. 80 million in cash with virtually no debt. IBM buy us back!
