    Excellent presentation at Sidoti this morning! Let's see if it generates any interested parties...

    Ready to dart back to the $17 range at any time...

    Moving into the 17s shortly with Zacks raising their rating to "buy" recently based on rapidly improving earnings.

    Don't sell your shares now in the mid 16s, when this is clearly moving back toward $20 soon. The MMs will steal your shares for $16-1/2 knowing that it will be back into the 20s soon after a 2-year hiatus.

    Continued Covid recovery and the return of the Boeing 737 Max should propel the financials strongly and drive the pps back higher toward where it should be valued for a company with so many tentatacles seeking business. The small cap funds will recognize this and drive the price up over the coming quarters. There are already occasional buys that are quite large for their float size.

    Following the gradual breakout well above all moving averages -- now trading in the 14s it appears there are some large buyers slowly taking large positions and moving up the pps to the low end of next anticipated price range. We are looking very bullish now, finally, after being caught in the Covid trap for well over a year.

    Wow, beautiful rise today based on the good results. This co will now continue on this upward trajectory and continue with increasing sales and earnings that beat projections going forward. Last week this stock was way underpriced.

    From Simply Wall Street, 1/24/2019 -- Over the last three years ALOT has shrunk its earnings per share by an average of 4.0% per year. Declining earnings per share suggest that the business performance wouldn’t really justify a high pay packet for the CEO, who joined the company in 2014. Thus, we can conclude that Greg Woods receives more in total compensation than the median of a group of companies in the same market, and of similar size.

    I wonder how Yvonne Schlaeppi, the newly appointed director is working out. She's replaced either retiring Machletchie or Everett V. Pizzuti, who's doing the same. Pizzuti does not often get deserved credit for having been a co-founder of the co. along with the late Albert W. Ondis back in the late 60s. Cheers to them and good luck to Everett!! New management gives little credit to the people who got the whole ball rolling, conceptually and in practice. They brought it to it's current state of two divisions, one for label printers and one for T&M that includes the cockpit printer business. The founders left the co. primed for expansion with everything established and awaiting additional incentives.

    $31.50 is the one year target according to Yahoo. That number is from ONE analyst and is not a consensus. Just like the $23 target that Singular Research made in 2014, but almost 5 yrs later we still haven't touched that level. Growth is too slow and there is not enough liquidity in this stock to trade it. Pass...

    What's with the massive selloff this morning? We've crossed below the moving average again -- very bad technically.

    I now question valuation here, when for years this co can't seem to get out of its own way. Always a disappointment, never a strong upside surprise. They slip through right on the edge with numbers that are almost reasonable but not quite. Like Cloudera, I believe Woods needs to be replaced, he should join Tom Reilly.

    Mini Flash Crash took out all stop loss orders down to 18.50. One needs to keep an eye on those orders, and not keep them so close to the trading range. Now the MMs have all of those shares at low prices that they will sell at higher prices in a few days when they jack it back up. Buy at this price while it's still low.

    Woody looks like he needs to get to a bathroom badly in the photo of him standing at the Nasdaq desk on the website. He looks quite terrified. LOL Beautiful shot they selected to use on the home page!

    In hindsight, how did this stock ever get all the way up to 26? What was that valuation based on, there was never any enormous growth in the cards? The historical PE was around 12-14, when the co was growing faster than it is now.

    Seems like we began slipping out of the $14 range right after the presentation at LD Micro on December 11th. I guess the presentation was not too compelling!

    Jim- Curious why you do not like AstroNova? I was reading though the last quarter earnings release and it appears the company has significant momentum , specifically strong bookings, revenue, and operating income growth. What am I missing ? Thank you
