In early stages of a downtrend which should take it to $35 or less on merit.

Things look rosy for the company right now, but I think it’s very important to keep the cyclical nature of the industry in mind. As CEO Gundermann himself put it, “looking back at 2014, it was obviously a watershed year for the company. It was a lot of things going right in the right direction… and it’s not one of those years that comes along every year, but it’s sure fun when it does.”

In other words, don’t expect every year to be like 2014. I suspect that the company will continue to do fine for the next couple of years at least — management is very bullish about 2015 — but as it gets larger it will become increasingly exposed to both the industry’s cycles and to competition as it grows out of its traditional niches (and competitors become more aware of the profitability of those niches). It already is facing some margin pressure in certain categories, and is projecting consolidated revenue growth of only 7.5% at the midpoint of its guidance (though the range is quite wide, and I’d expect it to come in a bit higher).

If one is comfortable with cyclicals in general, and the airline industry in particular, then I think Astronics could provide a nice ride over the next couple of years — especially if the global economy improves, lending a boost to the business jet line. But eventually the music will stop.

With record net income and sales growth year over year. What is not to love? A clean balance sheet and new key contracts on it's way... It's a buy!

They look like a takeover target for one of the bigger aerospace companies to me.

Going to keep an eye on the election. A big cut in defense spending could hurt this company.

I'm pretty sure Astronics has finally fit bottom and only going up from hear. I don't see this stock returning to the mid teens any time soon. Say hello to investors looking to survive a recession this summer by jumping into the defense sector.

Testing out a portfolio of smallish-cap 5-star stocks found using the CAPS screener. All picks have at least 50 allstars backing them, which should be enough to minimize star rating fluctuations. It's only been about a week, and I expect a LOT of volatility, but I have high hopes for market beating performance. Time will tell...

Experiment time... I will pick whatever stocks that are on the cold 5 star list on the last trading day of each month. There is no research involved other what is on the cold 5 star list at the end of each month. Each pick will be for one year. Lets see where this goes...

This was at one time a 200 pointer for me I think I ended up with less than 100, now even more off I gotta say it's not a bad move to get back in.
