This is a HOLD. Operationally the stock hasn't done tremendously well, but it's going in the right direction. Has attracted an offer from Harris Corp. (HRS-N) of $14 and it's worth holding for that extra little bit.

Company has been turning a small profit. Good management. Had some lay offs which will negatively impact the bottom line going forward as they deal with the costs. Did a takeover recently. Would have to look long and hard before treating this as a good entry point.

Management has done a good job of cutting costs to keep the cost structure in line. Now they've got to fill the products they want. Most people look to them for an HD play. Long term, at this price, you'll make money, but in the short term, don't count on earnings turning up rapidly. Still a lot of work to do. Fairly valued.

A high tech stock that has done fairly well. Had hit a high of $28 in 2000 and sold off to roughly $5 in 2003, so looking for a 1/3 correction. Has come back to a little more than $9 and is resting a bit. At a point that it shouldn't be subject to too much selling and there is a chance that it can go back to $11 and maybe a little bit higher.
