ARTW-From a 52 week high yesterday back to trading just above a 52 low. The company just reporting .14 cents in the last qtr. and a increased backlog. Traders can manipulate this company all they want. I added shares today because at 5.30. they IMO are trading on fundamentals again. I haven't sold a single share of my re-entry yet, and added shares today. I can outlast day traders. FWIW- I could be wrong, but I now believe AS could be a game changer for the company.

Company PR snip-Our agricultural sales are strong, and we've seen an increase in backlog over last year in every segment. Our products serving the livestock and dairy sectors have been very strong and are providing the counter-cyclical strength and stability we seek during times of weak row-crop commodity prices."

IF this AS contract was announced for Swine Behavioral. IMO any potential orders related for Ebola could have a material impact.

>Art's-Way announces two medical research contracts
Art's Way announces that Art's Way Scientific was awarded a sole source contract for a "High Output Swine Behavioral Unit" for the University of Illinois Department of Agricultural Nutritional Sciences Division. The testing unit, valued at $620,000, will support Dr. Ryan Dilgers work to study the nutritional effects of infant formula in brain development. Art's Way Scientific recently signed contracts for an additional $290,000 in business, including a swine research unit for Recombinetics, a company that develops genetic lines of swine bred to duplicate human diseases like heart disease, diabetes and cancer.

IMO Today's Coke- Earnings disappoint up the speculative appeal of LNCE. IMO Pepsi needs a strong competitor in salty snacks. They already have their hands on Monster & GMCR. Just maybe the need to swallow a pretzel? I can see Warren Buffett right now having a bowl of pretzels with his Coke at a bridge game.

Warren like these pretzels and a coke.


I like this combo. Hey just maybe HSY?

>Also, beaten-up economic-rebound trackers like the well run PACCAR (PCAR.)

Today's Daimler sale of Tesla stock has me wondering if they just might make another US try, but this time in big rig trucks. Makes a nice fit for their current product line in commercial trucks. It would be costly, but PACCAR sells premium trucks. IMO it fits right into the company's truck brands like a glove.
