ISSC has underperformed in recent years while spending heavily on R&D. They now have a greatly expanded product line and are set to begin benefiting from years of investment in these new products. Last year, Delta awarded a 60m contract to ISSC for an upgrade that includes a "complete Systems Integration, Dual GPS Navigation and Cockpit Avionics upgrade of Delta’s MD88 and MD90 aircraft." As the stock has pulled back after the news, I expect this to be a good entry point for patient investors looking to benefit from a cyclical upturn for this company.

The company has no debt and approximately 16m in cash. The CEO sold his former aerospace company to Smith Aerospace, and they paid a large dividend in 2012 while buying back 200k+ shares. The CEO maintains a 20% ownership in the company, and I believe management's interest is aligned with shareholders. The catalyst here is additional follow-on orders that should see a corresponding increase in backlog and eventually show up in improved earnings. Further FAA mandates for upgrades may also act as a catalyst Alternatively, a larger aerospace company could be interested in acquiring ISSC.

This Company has seen a disastrous 6 months going from a high of 29 to a low of 7; but so did most of the market. What I like about this stock is that at the moment it has released its financial statements, and posted a loss bigger than expected, so its stock has suffered a bit more. However, with the FAA tightening on Airline Regulations, and this company providing one of the major players in bringing airlines into US State Certification in order to fly here. The airlines(domestic) are going through major issues themselves right now besides regulation (oil prices anyone?) but foreign airlines still have to bring their aircraft into our Regulations if they want to fly into the country. And we have just relaxed a couple of rules to fly from Europe, where the euro is kicking the greenback, so more tourists are going to want to fly here= more airlines flying into the US= more Regulations have to be met= More money for ISSC. If that doesn't convince you, then I'll let you know that they have a HUGE amount of backlog for this year and the next with a bag of chips left over.

Due to a quarterly miss stock has finally gotten to a place where it's cheap. Growth estimates are huge and they've got a nice backlog that doesn't even include FedEx and other customers. $180 million market cap, $56 million in cash, no debt. PEG 0.50. Growing sales at 200% a year, they've missed big on their earnings estimates for several quarters now. I expect them to turn it around, stock should double over the next year or two.

The company is the market leader in the field of flight avionics .It designs, manufactures and sells products like flat panel displays and airdata products used for flight information to Department of Defense and commercial aviation sector. Adding to that, the company also sells individual avionic components and partial and complete air data systems.

The company mainly caters to retrofit aircraft market apart from the Original Equipment Manufacturers. It has been trying to position itselves as a complete system integrator of cockpit information from a pure play-manufacturing player. Net revenue for the fiscal 2006 decreased by 73% as a result of 83% decrease in sales of airdata product sales. Even a 56% sales hike in the newly introduced flat panel system could not offset this decline.

Demand for new commercial aircrafts have been rising with close to 420 aircrafts worth $7.2 billion sold in the first half of 2006.This spike is because of the introduction of low cost business aircrafts from Eclipse and Cessena. Department of Defense, which is also a major customer, will be upping its expense as part of modernization of its aircraft to support their ground troops in Iraq. These developments immensely open up the flight avionics and system integration market, which is expected to grow to close to $1.5 billion by 2007.

Flat panel system, which has been recently introduced, is being used in all the new aircrafts and as replacement to existing digital display. Also its dependence on retrofit market helps the company to leverage the aging aircraft fleet to its advantage. Thus the potential for the products by the company is massive which should reflect in its stock performance in the coming months.

Well, I'm no genius when it comes to the various number parameters of stocks. However, it doesnt take a astrophysicist to conclude that this little giants product mix and primary customer (dod) will need it's services to retool and re-equip much of the gismos and Hi tech weapon systems in and coming back from IRAQ and Afganistan not to mention what is sure to be shipped to the phillipines,japan and S.Korea given the current instability in those regions and the hi % of equipment currently exposed in the field....just my opinion
