The dividend is nice, and so is share buyback. Declining revenue and EBITDA over the last 5 years aren't so nice. I don't see how this company commands a P/E of 30, or how it will beat the overall market over the next 5 years.

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

High year-over-year income with a very strong cash-to-debt ratio of working capital. Diversified businesses and at a 5-year stagnancy that may be posed to start back to an upward swing.

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.

I'm willing to give this company the green thumb on CAPS because the valuations have come down to very attractive levels. The company has a ton of cash, and they hvae had no problem generating cash for several years.

However, I am hesitant to invest real money into this company, as it may end up being a giant value trap. They have two contracts with the US Army that make up over 50% of revenue, and they may disappear by the end of 2011.

Comtech has had a bad few weeks as it lost a defense contract and its acquisition of CPII did not work out. However, it still remains a good investment as proven by its earnings report that came out on September 23.
Three things that make it a good buy -
a) Well-run company with great products
b) Bigger defense companies with plenty of cash are always interested in paying a premium to acquire CMTL
c) CMTL management is looking actively for acquisition, evidenced by their attempt at CPII, which is always a good sign

The company is in a high entry barrier industry. Their technology is top notch and is being used in both Federal and Commercial worlds. The stock got beaten down lately (7/20/2010), and this is a good opportunity to buy in cheap. I added to my portfolio and I am looking to add more.

They recently announced they are about to buy Radyne for $11.50/shr or $216.2M. Their stock are going up and you can expect them to go higher since company is expanding. Good choice for a long-term...

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 army. If Republicans stay in office, I might change my outlook but definitely not if the Dems win the White House.

Great company with solid financials and consistent growth. Should be largely recession-proof as most of its revenue comes from US and foreign governments.

this company has continued to beat estimates and grow earnings without any major increases in share price. Comtech has continued to sign contracts and should see more foreign contracts (s.american) in the future.
