Wow DAIO now in the $7.70's! Since zolly left, nobody posts here. While the stock continues to climb. Just how far can this one go?
IMO, ya gotta take $2+ off the share price to account for balance sheet cash AND the nol's. That yields a current enterprise value of $5.82/share. I got the company earning $.50+ per share for 2017. That's a multiple of around 15x. I can see a multiple of 20x based on current bizz momo (auto's) and even higher with IoT on the horizon. The critical inflection point for DAIO is the intersection between programming speed, complexity, security and cost. All 4 of these variables are the perfect storm for DAIO equipment AND the newly launched software/systems initiative.
I see $20+ share price in 12 months.
ZOLLY PUTS TAIL BETWEEN HIS LEGS.HAHAHA. SOUP KITCHEN QUEEN,NOW BROKE<=.HAHAHAHA
ZOLLY IS THE WORST AT PREDICTIONS. HE IS ASHAMED TO COME BACK.HAHAHAHAHA
Wow! They absolutely crushed it! Given the weaker stock action lately while so many other tech stocks have been zooming, I was bracing for an off quarter. So I'm pretty blown away by the DAIO Q1 report. Especially the monster bookings. Awesome numbers across the board. One of the best Q1 reports I've seen so far.
CC was terrific too. DAIO is putting up great earnings even while ramping up R&D spending. Exactly what you want to see in a company you're invested in. There's new products and new partnerships that won't even start turning into revenue til 2018! Interesting comment about seasonality on the CC. When asked, the CEO said the period between Thanksgiving and the Chinese New Year is typically slow. But this year they just blew right through that. Even sounds like business is accelerating! That's the exciting thing on DAIO. As good as the numbers are, they're going to get even better in the coming quarters! I'm tempted to take out every share available below $5.50 in AH trading. This one seems like a lock to see the $6's. And that's just for starters. A year from now, DAIO could be in the double digits.
This company just continues to execute. I think investors are going to start paying up for this growth story. One beautiful looking Q1 comp will be sitting there. Q1 revenues up 57%. Q1 earnings of .12/share vs. a loss last year. Without the gain & currency loss, Q1 earnings of .10/share. Q1 gross margins of 57.7% vs. 54.8% last year. Q1 bookings of $8.4M(!) vs. $5.9M last year. Q1 ending backlog of $4.9M, up from $2M last year and up sequentially from $3.1M. DAIO also has an excellent balance sheet. I'm guessing the cash position is close to $2/share by yearend.
I'll be adding tomorrow. Would love to load up around $5. Stock should keep hitting new 52-week highs, which might attract the momo crowd. As described on the CC, DAIO is also a play on self-driving cars. So plenty of pump potential there as well. DAIO one of the best plays on Nasdaq imo.

Some nice news this week regarding DAIO's new security product. And a fellow DAIOer on ihub found this PR put out by Renesas, which is a multi-billion dollar company and the world's largest auto semiconductor maker. I'm guessing they might just buy DAIO at some point.
Renesas Electronics Partners with Data I/O and Secure Thingz to Provide Secure Firmware Flash Programming Solution for the Renesas Synergy(TM) Platform 8:00 am ET March 9, 2017
Renesas Electronics Corporation (TSE:6723), a premier supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions, today announced a first step of a security lifecycle management solution on the Renesas Synergy(TM) Platform for customers who build devices connecting to the Internet of Things (IoT). Renesas, together with partners Data I/O Corporation (NASDAQ: DAIO) and Secure Thingz, offer a secure firmware flash programming solution enabling customers to reliably and securely program authorized firmware into the flash memory of Synergy Microcontrollers (MCUs) in remote manufacturing facilities and in the field, while protecting firmware from being modified, pirated, or installed on cloned hardware.
OEMs building connected IoT devices face risks that include product disruption, system hijacking, eavesdropping, IP theft, and product cloning. Without the proper security, these devices can be exploited to shut down or damage vital industrial infrastructure or cause injury. Given the increased complexity of the global supply chain, extra diligence is needed to ensure that the integrity and authenticity of a product is maintained in the production environment and not compromised throughout the entire manufacturing cycle regardless of the location and security level and capabilities of the Contract Manufacturer's (CM's) or OEM's manufacturing personnel and processes. The secure flash programming solution based on the Synergy Platform enables OEMs to maintain product integrity and authenticity without such dependencies on the CM's capabilities.
A chain-of-trust starts with the delivery of a Synergy MCU with hardware security features to a secure programming center where a unique root-of-trust is installed on each MCU with equipment provided by Data I/O. The next step in the chain is for the OEM to use tools provided by Data I/O and Secure Thingz to author their firmware such that it is encrypted, signed, and provisioned to specific MCUs. After this, the Synergy MCUs can be shipped to the OEM or CM facility. Once in the field, the authored firmware can be securely updated into the MCUs' flash memory with the on-chip root-of-trust being used to validate and decrypt the firmware before flash programming - all securely taking place within the Synergy MCUs that provide hardware protected memory segments integrated with an asymmetric cryptographic engine to validate and decrypt the firmware. This eliminates concern for IP theft, piracy, and product cloning.
Renesas provides the Synergy MCU and Synergy's security reference solution that deliver a strong root-of-trust through a unique identity, hardware protected keys, a secure boot loader, a secure flash update module, and cryptographic API's that interface with the MCU hardware.
Secure Thingz provides the Secure Deploy(TM) suite of tools, which enable end-to-end encryption of firmware to the device, plus secure deployment into remote, high-risk manufacturing environments, alongside remote firmware updating and management.
Data I/O provides the SentriX(TM) Security Programming Platform, a highly flexible, cost-effective security provisioning and data programming solution for authentication devices, secure elements and secure MCUs that enables the secure provisioning in a secure manufacturing environment or programming center. The SentriXPlatform contains the Secure Thingz's Guardian with integrated HSM (Hardware Security Module), which allows for the SentriX Platform and the Secure Deploy suite to work together seamlessly to protect firmware and critical data.
"Renesas Synergy's security reference solution empowers OEMs to deliver and manage a trusted IoT device. When used with the SentriX Security Programming Platform and Secure Deploy, Synergy MCUs plus the associated software, tools, and infrastructure allow OEMs to protect their software IP from modification, theft and cloning," said Brian Davis, Vice President of Synergy IoT Platform Business Division, Renesas Electronics Corporation. "In addition, the solution enables remote systems to be safely updated over the product lifecycle with new protections for evolving security attacks and hacking technologies."
Customers interested in evaluating the solution may obtain an evaluation kit that includes a DK-S7G2 Synergy Development Kit, tools, Synergy's security reference solution, and an evaluation version of Secure Deploy. Once customers have evaluated the solution, it can be deployed into manufacturing in conjunction with Data I/O's SentriXSecurity Programming Platform. Customers can work with Secure Thingz to deploy a remote update solution.
"IoT OEMs are increasingly concerned with vulnerabilities in connected devices and are turning to various types of secure microcontrollers to embed trust, enable a secure supply chain, and establish firmware integrity," said Anthony Ambrose, President and CEO of Data I/O Corporation. "The SentriX Platform enables a trusted, secured, and cost-effective solution for OEMs seeking to secure the supply chain and maintain firmware integrity. Data I/O is excited to partner with Renesas and SecureThingz to enable this comprehensive solution supporting the Synergy Platform products throughout the OEM product lifecycle."
"With the advent of the IoT, the protection of the design, software, intellectual property, and integrity of products is becoming paramount to the OEM. Traditional security technology is unable to defend against rapidly advancing threats," said Haydn Povey, Founder and CTO of Secure Thingz. "We are excited to work with Renesas and Data I/O to enable OEMs to deploy secure content to devices, creating robust foundations and delivering innovative features on Synergy Platform."
Renesas plans to introduce Renesas Synergy's security reference solution at embedded world 2017 to be held in Nuremberg, Germany from March 14th to 16th 2017, at Renesas booth Hall 4, Stand 104. For more information, contact your local Renesas sales representative, or visit www.renesassynergy.com.

Lots of automotive programming will be done in the future. All this will benefit DAIO. Then there is IoT and securing of devices. Lots to look forward to with DAIO.
Wow Q3 was one impressive quarter! Earnings up 42% to .08/share. Q3 revenues at a 5-year high. Q3 booking of $7.9M an 8-year high! Excellent balance sheet with $1.20/share in cash. Exciting thing here is the numbers should get even BETTER. Q3 marks the beginning of the 5-year Bosch agreement, which they said will boost sales in 2017 & 2018. DAIO also an IOT play. Love the quote in the earnings PR about how they see "massive opportunities" ahead.
$ARTH should be on your trading screen right now! This biotech stock has had some crazy developments as of late and could be ready to move higher.
Dephi and Mobileye team up to build autonomous vehicles by 2019. Delphi is a Data IO customer, so this quick push to get a vehicle into the market may mean more business for DAIO in the next few years.
Nice quarter! Q2 earnings of .06/share vs. .01/share last year. Q2 revenues up 17%. Good balance sheet with over $1/share in cash. Company doing a lot of the right things...buying back shares and cutting expenses (which according to the Q1 earnings PR will save $500K/year). And here's the kicker. They signed this big 5-year supply agreement AFTER the close of Q2. They're expecting the deal to add $7-$9M in revenue over the next 5 years. So should see even better numbers starting in Q3. Toss in a low float and I think this one could be headed for $4+.
