    Gotta love these little $300 million market cap 10x earnings easy to understand businesses like plpc. Just takes a little interest to get the stocks going big time. Perfect stocks to be manipulated by hedge funds to get them moving on a 45 degree angle

    Anyone know when PLPC reports? Going to be interesting to see if their earnings momentum continues. Don’t see why it shouldn’t continue.

    Reporting in again.
    The Company in this environment can only be in a better place, except it is still for all intensive purposes a private Company that is public.. Why is it expending all the dollars to be in compliance with full disclosure, which is what i do not understand.

    One advantage it gives insider shareholders the opportunity to sell stock, such as older family members, it gives the inside shareholders the opportunity to value stock at a lower value for Estate Tax purposes. There must be other reasons .

    There is nothing not to like about the Company. Management really cares, just look at their annual reports, they take pride in full disclosure and presenting a glossy report, unlike a lot of public/private companies that would save the money.

    I wish I knew what their direction was as I am 80 and would like short term growth, whereas it is not staying up with the DOW which is hitting new highs, or yielding a dividend that is meaningful.....what does one do if they like the Company pass on their stock to their grand kids?

    What gives with PLPC? Company should benefit from upgrading the electricity grid. It does substantial revenue outside the US. Profitable ($12mn quarterly profits last quarter) with a clean balance sheet. Super illiquid but seems reasonable for a $300ish million market cap

    What a great company. It should really be private because the shareholders other than the owners, who control the company, do not get a reasonable dividend, do not benefit from the intrinsic vallue which gets greater all the time whereas the stock price seems to be going in reverse.

    Why doesn't management just buy everyone out or why don't they sell out to another company and continue to run it, saving all the public filing cost , and they can save on overhead etc etc.

    I really do not know how this is done so that it becomes a win/win for owners and other shareholders?
