    Nice summary! That's exactly what I heard , too. The CC was much more informative than the earnings report!

    Did you listen to the CC? I did. It seemed to me that most if not all of the analysts were positive on Mgt.'s performance and optimistic about the future of the business and the way NNA was positioned.

    I think there has be margin related selling in NNA. I've been adding significantly all day. The price seems ridiculously low.

    Any view on the CEO announcement?

    I'm delighted by the announcement of PM as the future CEO and President of CRY! What I like about him most besides his impressive business experience is his graduation from West Point. I think the service academies are by far the toughest colleges in America because in addition to an extremely rigorous college curriculum the cadets have numerous military duties.
    I have investments in two other companies where the CEO attended a service college, JNJ and CKP. Alex Gorsky at JNJ has totally reinvigorated the company! ( The prior CEO was asleep at his job in comparison.) CKP has been totally restricted under George Babich and is in the process of a major turnaround.( In CkP's case it helps that the Chairman, William Antle, is a graduate of the Naval Academy has a Harvard MBA is a Bain & Co. alumni and built Oak Industries as its CEO before the sale to Motorola for about 3 billion.)
    In my not so humble opinion you can't ask for a better background for a CEO that a service academy graduate. These guys tend to get more positive things by noon in one day that some other Ceo's get done in a week. Like dhild says it will take time for CRY to develop but I'm very encouraged by the announcement of PM as the future CEO of CRY!

    My first thought is I sold my COV too soon. ( Got that as I bought TYC at the bottom in 2002 when it was in the 8s.) Second thought is the combination will probably go through as there isn't that much overlap. Three, I doubt that merger with CRY would now be in the cards as this a huge deal and would take a long time to digest. 4th thought is consolidation in the industry will continue as it makes economic sense. I think CRY could still participate.

    I just checked Value Line again and CRY is rated in the top 70 of 1700 companies they follow as far as long term appreciation potential at today's price of the stock.

    CRY has a lot of hoops to jump through if it stays independent but Value Line has earnings going up to $.90 per share in 2017 to 2019 time frame with a target price range of 16 to 25 which is considerably higher than the average appreciation potential of the 1700 companies they follow.
