I'm hearing bad, bad rumblings on this one. Looking into it myself, I see increasing capex, and two years of (rising) negative free cash flow -- even as Polypore reports GAAP "profits." Doesn't look good.

Over-reaction of negative news in the last couple of weeks. Still an attractive long-term industry and one of the top players.

This market/industry will get bigger and bigger and PPO is situated perfectly to grow with the market, increase revenue.

Both segments of PPO's business are not fads or trends; they are required products that will continue to be demanded as technology gets better and better.

Stored power and rechargeable batteries are a way of the future for cars and many other electronic products.

Green for Polypore isn't from the money of their net income.

Company creates membrane filters and separators. Varied product and global footprint will keep it afloat for next several years, but the big pop will come from an auto industry recovery as a supplier of crucial batttery components for hybrids.

THE REASON FOR THIS IS THAT THIN FILM FILTRATION IS NEEDED IN SEVERAL FIELDS. AND THIS STK WORKS IN BOTH THE MEDICAL FIELD AND MAY HAVE THE TECHNOLOGY TO WORK IN THE LITHIUM BATTERY FIELD WHICH MAY OR MAY NOT TAKE OFF. DEPENDING IF THE "BIG THREE AMIGOS" CAN PULL PULL THIER HEADS OUT OF THIER ASS IN TIME TO FIGHT THE JAPANESE ONSLAUGHT.
