    Mark,

     

    Could you comment on LTRX at this time. I think things could be
    coming together for this stock. Any thoughts. Thank you.

    Author’s reply » I think it's best to wait until LTRX shows that they can string a couple of good quarters together. I like the team there. Great people, but they walked into a situation that necessitated a lengthy renovation, which is obviously still ongoing.
