I simply find it very difficult to ignore a stock that has a sub-1 price to sales ratio, especially when they still have decent earnings. Good P/E ratio as well, and a very low 1.11 PEG. (Especially low for a company in such a low-growth industry.)

All in all, a good small-cap pick. Looks like the market hasn't really found this one yet.

August 2008 - stock has held up relatively well compared to the rest of the industry and insiders are buying more.
