  • WIRE's operating cash flow exploded from $57.5 M in 2020 to $233.9 M in 2021.
  • Management is using the cash to grow market reach and reduce operating costs, which bodes well for the future.
  • The balance sheet remains very strong with $294.9 M cash and zero debt.
  • I believe WIRE still has room to run, and expects 30-50% upside from its current level.
