122% projected earnings growth from '12 to '13 means a forward P/E of 7 at $2.82. NLS should easily pick up the pace. If guidance remains on track I think we could be looking at a forward P/E of 12 or $4.80 or 70% above current prices in the next 12 months.

A mining company about 2 yrs from production, with very high grade ore. The high grade ore will give it lower production costs and the price will rise swiftly once production becomes more imminent.

Nautilus is struggling with its financials. It had negative income of 45.9 million over the past 12 mos. Over the past 5 years it has had negative sales growth. It currently has a negative EPS and negative cash flow. It just appointed a new CEO in 3/2008 and sold off it Pearl Izumi line in 4/2008. The sale of Pearl Izumi got rid of 4.1 million in debt, but thats a drop in the bucket considering the company just took out a 100 million dollar loan in Jan 2008. If the economy was a little better, Nautilus might be able to make some improvements. However, I just don't see tons of people running out to buy fitness equipment and I can't see this company turning itself around at any time in the near future. In fact, I wonder how long it will be before they parcel out another one of their lines. Despite the fact the stock price, currently $3.20, is near its 52 week low of $3.00, I think it will continue to lose ground.

Nautilus may be a small cap company, but they are well known in the exercise equipment industry. With brands like Bowflex, Schwinn and Nautilus, everyone has heard of them. The stock is off almost 80% from its 52-Week high with equity that is over double its debt. Even if things stay as they are, 12.7% dividends is nothing to sneeze at.

The money saved on cutbacks has been spent and went toward nothing that would improve company performance. They have great products in specific market segments, but have sacrificed margins by shrinking infrastructure without an understanding of the impact to the business. Their customer service is getting worse which works against any efforts to improve product reliability perceptions. I'm watching a great company continue to head toward the cliff.

Sherborne Investors GP who bought 25% of the Company just took control of the Board in a special shareholder meeting to remove the Board. They have a good track record, plus their reputation is on the line, which is big for investment funds in getting/retaining new assets. There is also a large short interest. The Company's Pearl Izumi division bought for 74M in 2005 and which has grown since then, alone almost justifies the stock price. Other divisions like Bowflex, Nautilus, Stairmaster and Schwinn essentially are had to free then.

Wether Sherborne takes control of the board , which seems inevitable, or not, NLS is a company on a mission. They have already begun a multistage turnaround plan and will be continuing to make positive changes to get back to the basics and become a healthy company again. I believe that this stock will get back up to the double digits within the next 3-4 months.

New management will get things moving upward. Great dividend company, which seems can't financially go any lower.

Risk/Reward is favorable given the potential of the brand and the current share price. That's pretty much it, its a good bet, nothing certain for sure. Management is poor and activists are going to improve that directly or indirectly.

NLS is currently undergoing managerial restructuring and is pressured by an active aggressive investor trying to replace board members.

This has created a vacuum of uncertainty in the stock price, that is more representative of the current fears and the lack of growth in Nautilus' prior year(s) failing strategies.

I believe that the shakeup will mean that the board (or Sherborne) will take an active role in ensuring turn-around for the company in the next two years. NLS will outperform once it has stabilized and can once again take advantage of its brand-name to grab market share.

Significant growth opportunity in mass retail. Powerful brand equity: leading brands such as Nautilus, Bowflex, StairMaster, and Schwinn. Fitness industry experiencing rapid growth globally. Baby boomers represent an attractive demographic for the fitness equipment industry.

New Ceo. Was with nike for many years. restructuring. new initiatives. cuting jobs, sell apaprel business, facility closures. going forward

Best for a patient value oriented investor - LT - potential takeout candidate.

Stock is down. Mgmt. threw a curve ball and threw in all expenses this year.
