    A bit mind boggling why DAIO is not moving up with the markets and the $SMH, although it has solid financials, growth and prospects. Its time will come soon.

    Kanen Management just sent a letter to the Board of LAZY. They should strongly consider doing the same to the Board of DAIO.

    For all you "insider sale" guru's... if you own Microsoft...maybe time to get out!

    Satya Nadella, Microsoft’s C.E.O., sold nearly half of his holdings in the company last week

    We can see a couple big funds have bought in Q3, they must have confidence that the business model should start paying off soon.

    Those waiting for a "correction" are likely not going to get one (at least at this juncture). The more the monied interests do their due diligence...the cheaper the existing price will appear. If (and i will concede it is a big if) Sentrix achieves the success I predict... anything under $20 (at the moment) is cheap. Really cheap.

    Think of the billions of devices which require a greater degree of security than ever in the past. To safely secure a device (and specifically the integrated circuits they contain) the security must originate at the design/development stage (not a DAIO market) and continue through the provisioning, programming and manufacturing phases (Sentrix sweet spot). DAIO has tons of goodwill and relationship equity with most of the major semi players (in particular, the microcontroller big hitters)... these players WILL NOT play ball with the small, unknown, locally home grown programming companies with whom DAIO competes. They will likely ONLY play ball with DAIO (the gold standard). Further, (and not easily seen amidst the industry adjustments taking place) is the impact security will have on "where and how" the chip programming is performed. Bear in mind, there are multiple ways to program chips which DAIO does not participate in today...however, as security takes hold and the supply chains embrace it's requirement...the programming of chips MOVES TO DAIO's core competence... what i'm saying here is the available market for DAIO will skyrocket based on the supply chain adjusting to meet security requirements...

    Keep buying, hold your ground. It's a microcap, low float, highly illiquid stock. In 2017, as you most certainly know by now, it went from $4 to $16 in 9 months...anyone thinking this is still a "cyclical play tied to autos" is going to sell out and miss (bigtime) the ride (no pun intended).

    Tried to leave 2 different posts... neither were accepted by Yahoo message board...why i'm not sure.
    Hopefully this one gets thru.

    Today was a GROSS over reaction in terms of share price (but a spanking was warranted). Kudos to @Wadi for the semi shortage warning...he was right. I did not see that kind of impact coming through.

    Further, the lack of progress on SentriX is bothersome, but some slack can be cut with the previous North American auto win (with a reseller), conversion of a 7000 at an Asian Programming center and the recent Artificial Intelligence sale/license. I suspect the shortage has all DAIO customers in pause mode regarding expansion, upgrades and help to keep the legacy footprint/base working and functioning to meet what demand can be fulfilled. A critical point to keep in mind right now is Ambrose's comment in the conference call..."Again, we've all been talking about and hearing about shortages in the supply chain. We need to remember that shortage to the -- vastly increased demand not necessarily short of where they were a year ago."
    In essence, the shortage is related to the demand...not the yoy availability... this speaks to DAIO adapter/socket growth and backlog... the existing machines in the field are working full throttle and the improvement/uptick in service & support work orders (customers need help getting everything out of the machines they got) it is highly likely pent-up capacity expansion is right around the corner.

    It was a cry, bye or buy day.
    I did 2 of the 3 :)

    Nice earnings report. Future looks bright for DAIO. I was particularly glad to see revenue as high as it was. Granted, there was a dip compared with 2017 - a cyclically high banner year - but annual revenue was well above all previous years prior to 2017. Overall, revenue has been growing steadily since 2014. Growing revenue is the best indication of a bright future for any company.

    Why does Yahoo keep getting the closing price wrong? Thursday it said it closed at 5.18; it closed at 5.09. Today it says it closed at 5.28; it closed at 5.25. And I think Friday it said 5.16 when it actually closed at 5.15.

    To any and all non-believers in the future of DAIO... I urge you to read this week's Barrons feature article- The Internet of Things: What Could Go Wrong.

    I will consider all of us (current holders and newcomers @ $11 and change) EXTREMELY lucky if we do not see a buy-out near $20... and have the good fortune to ride these shares to $30 and higher. The combination of where DAIO sits in the IoT food chain and the limited outstanding share count (8.5 million) make a "frightening case" for DAIO to rocket breathtakingly higher in bursts of

    denaro, I think we will get another buying opportunity in the next few days, compliments of a market rout

    My 2 cents worth? A lot of people gonna be doing some quick due diligence tonite following this move today.

    There will be no news announced...no company pr... nothing

    Tomorrow morning we will gap up on open to mid $7's...maybe $8.

    The quick due diligence from tonite and no announcements?...people will be speculating this "Sentrix" investment is getting serious market attention... they'll play with some numbers on 375-400 PSV's and the annual thru=put for securing MCU's and take a nickel or dime per MCU...divide it by 8.5 mio shares...and POOF...off to the races ...or, someone found out who bought that Sentrix system in Q2...and was laying down a serious bet there will be many more like it...wonder why?

    One thing is for sure...this wasn't any short covering run...

    Let's see...

    Our last earnings report shows our revenue reached its highest plateau in 17 yrs and also bookings were also at its highest in over 10 yrs from its strength in the automotive electronics/infotainment and internet of things sector.The NGC is based on a 1:1 basis which Im hoping is a way for this company to elaborate on which way the future will take us.What has changed since earnings?From what Im able to see,nothing,unless someone that is knowledgeable who is familiar with this company can shed some light here.There happened to be a huge tech sell-off and all of the bigger companies all have recovered.Im hoping since this is such an under the radar company with so little o/s that we were for the most part overlooked.The NGC is a great way to reignite this company and hopefully with some positive data will open the eyes of all new as well as former investors to invest with this money earning company.Lets not forget we were trading around 4.00 in March.Not a bad gain in under a year.Hopefully this will be a good year for DAIO and all of its investors and as always GLTA.

    Terrible results from DAIO. Net loss of ($1.6) million or ($0.20) earnings per share. Geez! This was worse than any of the 4 most recent quarters! The company ought to just shut down. It is looking like management is only in this to draw a salary. They are not bringing this thing around to earning a profit. And they could not even find $5 million in sales this quarter ?!? Sad. Heads should roll. Shareholders should nominate a new board in the next proxy. Based on these results, DAIO is probably over valued by 2X right now. Enjoy!

    Now we see why DAIO was dropping. Revenue and bookings both down. Operating income was $246,000 for the second quarter of 2018, down from $1.3 million in the second quarter of 2017 and $344,000 in the first quarter of 2018. DAIO is failing in all directions. Probably will drop below $5 per share this month.

    anybody see the presentation? not much reaction in share price tells me it was absent any hints of 4q and 2017 totals, 2018 forecast, and tangible explosive growth opportunities in the new year. ie, poor reaction.....

    More CEO share sales. I realize that Ambrose took a pay cut during the pandemic, but the only upside I see to his sales is that perhaps the price will come down to the level where I can pick up more cheapies in the $4 range. Still a long-term bull, but not thrilled with recent performance. I guess there is always next quarter to look forward to.
