As the US and other countries modernize their power grids, smart meters will be an important part of the upgrade. Itron can expect to benefit from the upsurge in spending for years to come.

I had picked this stock awhile back to out perform but so far it has failed to outperform the market. I took another look at the numbers and realized there was not much in their financial stats to make me want to keep them.

They have seen a jump in quarterly earnings over 20% which always makes for a good starting point when searching for new stocks but the good news stops there. Looking at their ROA and ROE both of these numbers are below 5%. Generally I like to see companies with ROA and ROE at 10% or more. (Unless they are financial companies.) More bad news their profit margin is tiny. Some companies in other industries like FedEx and UPS can thrive off of 3% or 6% profit margins. Itron however has a serious cash flow problem on its hands that is constraining it. The Current Ratio is a very healthy 1.5. That however is misleading since Current Assets includes net Receivables. When you look at their cash on hand and their net receivables you realize that a lot of people owe them money and the company is probably living paycheck to paycheck as it were. Management has seen this problem and taken out an additional $125M credit line to help with liquidity. Itron may have a good business but I don't see it out performing any time soon. At least not until they figure out had to get paid quicker or manage their cash flow better.

Itron is a strong company, with strong products.
I believe they will always be strong. I wish they paid a Dividend.
They are in the "KO, PEP, APPL" catagory. It's a keeper.

With the massive flow of stimulus dollars into smart meters it will be hard for this one to miss...

Smart grid beneficiary. Has the products to make the electrical grid, as well as gas and water industries much more efficient. Products are open standard and accepted by larger utilities and eligible for new DOE grants which should boost sales in the coming quarters.

Smart grid, water, energy in an established product- what's not to like?

With long-term energy demand on the rise, due to emerging economies such as China and India, more efficient use of energy will be necessary. Metering energy usage (electricity and gas) and charging based on the demand at the time of use will encourage users to defer usage at times of peak demand. President Obama has included stimulus money to promote the development of a smart electrical grid.

Demand for Itron's meters has been depressed by the current recession, however I think that the oil price spike to $140+ per barrel has made Americans realize that we should reduce consumption to prevent a return to high oil and natural gas prices a few years in the future. I believe that the Public Utility Commissions will support the efforts of utilities to collect usage data through the installation of "smart" meters and use the data collected to make the generation system more efficient.
