    Equity market capitalization is up to $1.4 billion, yet free cash flow remains in the $30 million per year range.

    That's a roughly 2% free cash flow yield.

    I can't understand it.

    I owned this stock a few years ago … Looking for a reentry point. Revenues from 15-18 are not impressive in their growth. Thus, any clues on why this stock has been so strong over same time period?

    This is the first time in years I am not holding this stock just because of tax avoidance.

    I still don't think ATRI is undervalued, but good guidance for year is significant, as they do not tend to overpromise.

    Stock starting to show some cracks. Virtually no growth an tough comparisons coming, especially in 1st half of '18. Stock actually went down (modestly) on earnings today. Index and ETF Flows have kept the stock at these elevated levels but trees don't grow to the sky and as I said, cracks are starting to form. I smell a long overdue correction coming. Yes this is a good, we'll run company, but the stock price could drop 200 points and still just be at a market multiple. I'll be waiting with the trick to load up once the momentum guys and computers take the price back to earth.

    Someone is buying ATRI and it is not insiders who have been selling shares.

    To all the old timer Atrion owners: you know who you are.

    Assuming all the old posts are gone into "Yahoo limbo hell", I just wanted to restart the 15 year or so colloquy...

    So post a hello to the board!

    Earnings were very disappointing as was the outlook. This is a good company but valuation is sky high and investors have been too complacent while operating challenges were brewing. I fear a sharp correction is now in order, (a 200 point plunge would only bring the stock back to a market multiple!) after which it will be a good buy again for long term investors.

    Nice Quarter.
    I'm surprised they were able to manage a top line increase in this environment, but I think people focused too much on the headline numbers and didn't look closer. Last year's quarter was understated due to an impairment on an investment, while this quarter's numbers were inflated by an artificially low tax rate. The coming quarterly comparison's will be much harder. As I've stated in the past, this is a wonderful company, but with top and bottom line growth in the single digits, the huge multiple just makes no sense. I can't own it at these prices, but would love to jump back in once the market figures it out and the stock trades back to a more reasonable valuation of $350 and below. Good luck to all.

    What percentage of open heart surgeries is threatened by the new TAVR procedure, Trans-aortic valve replacement, where the valve is inserted into the femoral artery in the leg and snaked up and into place where it opens like an umbrella?

    Notice today that ATRI is trading at 520/sh. Is it really worth it? My basis is low. I hate to sell and pay taxes but I'm considering it. The insiders have a lot of stock, why aren't they selling it here? Could corporate tax abatement or possible modification of the health care law removing the medical device tax be bullish enough to justify the market price?
