This company continues to receive orders, though not enormous by last year's standards. The stock continues to dribble away. Given the economy over the next year, I don't anticipate big orders like last year's $605.1 million MTS contract with the US… More

This telecommunications company is toast. Revs down each year substantially. Big cash pile that they are blowing on buybacks.

Showed up on MFI screener. Seems too good to be true (looks almost fraudulent), except the CEO and CFO were recently buying shares. CFO buys are somewhat rare in general. And it's not a China RTO stock!

The stock trades close to cash on hand ($22/share) and is trading like they have lost all their business. Yet they are profitable. EV/EBITDA is 2.72. EV/FCF is around 3.4.
