All the other tech companies need what NATI has to offer. They will all go up together when the economy is better.

National Instruments is now in between major software product cycles. It's Q4'06 results will be strong, but poor execution by upper management will make growth difficult.

This stock has seen some ups and down in their quarterly earnings in the last year. However, their outlook with a bounding market should do well. I believe the next few quarters should be good for them.

They have been beaten down because they missed two quarters estimates by only a penny. That seems kind of harsh. I'm sure they will rebound and resume a growth nearly 20% in the next few quarters and overall for the next few years.

With insider ownership of 21% they are quite inclined to keep this company moving in a positive direction. They have done so with zero debt.

They also pay a dividend of 1.9% which is just additional icing on the cake. So, I think I could party with these guys for the next few years of so.

Four star stock bouncing off of a recent low. I personally think the stock is slightly overvalued but who am I to argue with market sentiment?

Have owned NATI for over a year and have watched it thoroughly underperform Mr. Market during this time. Further, I don't see this drag on my portfolio's performance changing anytime soon. Holding (albeit somewhat impatiently) at this point but not very confident in its turnaround. Don't know what I'm missing - a very high percentage of CAPS members weighing in on the stock are high on it - but I'm unimpressed at this point.
