RE- SYKE I incorrectly stated earning was Jan 27. It should have been Feb 27. AMC.

RE: Buffet style acquisition- Just remember Warren Buffett bought the Scott Fetzer company owner of the Kirby vacuum. If you ever have a Kirby salesmen come to your house ( I have). IMO it's hard to retain employees. Sykes is having a problem with that now.

P.S. A good friend of mine sold them early in his career. In my case. They hit the whole area with a big van dropping off sales people. Guess What, I already had one (With the bell and whistle attachments). :+ ) I've long ago gave it away to someone. I use a Shark now! IMO Kirby's are a nice heavy duty vacuum (commercial), but it's heavy and I never needed it as a drill. LOL

2017 SITT pick SYKE gets an offer today.

Message #4362 from richardred at 1/27/2017 1:42:12 AM

I am. It's on this years SITT list. You don't hear this company mentioned to often as a TO. I'll say it's an under the radar company. It's also kind of an under performer to it's pear group. However cash flow & a nice balance sheet was what attracted me. I believe a family member is still the CEO. The board only owning around 8% makes for a scale able hypothetical acquisition IMO. News will be out tomorrow. So the stock could be impacted positively or negatively. If the ROE was a little higher. The company almost makes me think this could be a Buffett Style acquisition target.
