David

I called the investor relations today. No new news. Earnings expected later in Feb. Business is soft in Europe. They have already pre announced the bad news on DEC 18.

I would still do the same since I don't expect ULTK to do "better than expected". I would not buy 5000 shares ... YET.

Nobody knows what will happen. If you follow some other companies you might notice that VERY often poor earnings bring the price up and great earnings take the price down. I mean very often... So it is not just the earnings. It is the outlook for the company overall. Just a little something to be happy about for us: casino stocks are getting hot. Some contracts for ULTK might get re-activated and then only the sky is the limit : )

Ultrak posted a loss of $0.18/share for the 4th quarter and a profit of $0.16 for the year after taking a $3.1 million non-recurring charge along with other charges totaling approximately $2.0 million. Without the 4th quarter charges, earnings would have come in at $0.07 for the quarter and $0.38 for the year.

All of the unhappy investors in ULTK should have a look at Silent Witness Enterprises SWE. There is a thread. SWE, a month ago or so, won the patent suit against ULTK and they will no longer be paying 7% of their gross sales of transportation video systems as a royalty to ULTK. Check out the news releases of SWE. They are the recommended supplier to all school districts in Missouri.
