You think people could read and make buying decisions. Not really. $1.48 vs $1.09, most hedge funds don't make that percentage in two years, but here it is guaranteed. Yet folks allow the idiots making market here to criminally sell it to punish someone they stole data from Order Routing. And that is how they're able to commit these frauds and get away. Folks see selling and assume something is wrong. When a huge opportunity was presented by idiots on another quest....a quest to prove that they're kings. FOOLS.....
I am the reason. The idiots making market here saw that I bought three days ago and since then chose to squeeze me out. Hasn't worked so well. I bought at $1.14 Friday, then $1.03 and $0.98 premkt Monday. APPLAUD Me!!!
OK then, I'll call it. The bottom was $1.31 (which happened to be the low on the day I made that post and 7/10 of a penny lower than my fill price)
Kinda quite here. Any bottom callers out there?
Agreed. I bought in a couple weeks ago and will probably make another position when it dips again before earnings is released.
Agreed! Very positive and bodes well for the future!
Hopefully they can get some sales in the First Responder segment - is that what they call it?
Anyway, looking for positive things from them again next quarter!
They made a lot of positive changes .
They will reduce their rent by $1.5 M per year starting in October. Award of the First Net contracts to start in April. Company already had 2 first net products and bolt on hardened battery packs and enclosures for this matket.They had a lot of software licensing business that they were booking
but has to spread over the term.
Great positive cash flow actions and increase in dross profit margins to 40 percent from the 30s.
Agreed! They are making progress. Q4 was normally slow because of weather, but still, income was down a bit. Hopefully forecast for next Quarter is better. Costs were down significantly which enabled them to increase their cash on hand. Overall pretty good.
Earnings on Feb. 8th after market close!
Should be a good earnings release and the stock is inching up in anticipation of that.
Real potential to turn profitable this year - CEO predicts that.
It will be a good year for Westell!
Anyone else jumping on for a ride?
bulls running on the way up
how long can this trade on the Naz at this volume before being kicked to the otc?
This is what they do with investors money; something they have been doing for decades...
Reuters shows the whole gang's compensations - unbelievable!

Westell’s HomeCloud Earns CES 2011 Innovations Award for Design and Engineering
AURORA, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Westell Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:WSTL - News), a leading provider of broadband products, outside plant telecommunications equipment and conferencing services, today announced that it has been named an International CES 2011 Innovations Design and Engineering Awards Honoree for its visionary HomeCloud™ solution and groundbreaking HomeCloud Digital Home Manager (DHM) network appliance. Products entered in this prestigious program are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, engineers and members of the media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 35 product categories.
Cloud-based applications accessed via the Internet are becoming increasingly important to residential consumers. The benefits of these applications include virtualized storage, device and location independence, and ease of use. However, the expanding use of these applications is leading to increased complexity in sharing personal data with the right services at the right time. Also, consumers are concerned with the privacy of their data -- how it is used today by a particular application provider, and how it may be used in the future.
HomeCloud simplifies the situation for the end consumer by creating a home-based cloud computing environment. In doing so, consumers unify their home data access and gain an application platform from which to run a personalized set of cloud-like applications. Since HomeCloud applications operate within the home, users have improved control of their personal data. HomeCloud allows them to easily share and synchronize data among their home devices. When desired, it can also selectively link home data to their preferred Internet-based applications and services. At the heart of the solution is the HomeCloud DHM. The DHM is a new consumer network appliance from Westell that utilizes a patent-pending combination of specialized software and hardware in order to create a personal cloud in the home.
“The CEA and International CES are prestigious industry organizations, and we are proud to be recognized for our technology innovation and excellence by industry experts,” said Christopher J. Shaver, Vice President and General Manager of Westell’s Customer Networking Solutions division. “The Innovations Award validates our concept for bringing cloud application technology into the home,” he said.
Westell’s HomeCloud DHM will be displayed at the 2011 International CES, which runs January 6-9, 2011 in Las Vegas, Nevada as part of the Innovations Design and Engineering Showcase. The showcase will feature honorees by product category in the Grand Lobby of the Las Vegas Convention Center. Additional information including introductory white papers can be obtained by visiting www.homecloud.com.

Westell Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:WSTL - News), a leading provider of broadband products, outside plant telecommunications equipment and conferencing services, today announced results for its fiscal 2011 second quarter ended September 30, 2010. Total revenue for the quarter was $51.1 million, up 8% from $47.4 million in the fiscal second quarter of the prior year. Net income during the quarter was $4.8 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, compared to net income of $2.9 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, in the same quarter of the prior year. This is an increase of $1.9 million, or 65%. Total cash and cash equivalents were $70.1 million at September 30, 2010, up $8.3 million during the quarter.
“We are very pleased to be reporting increases in revenues and earnings, along with very strong cash flow,” said Chairman and CEO Rick Gilbert. “This demonstrates excellent execution and progress across the entire company.”
Fiscal Second Quarter Division and Consolidated Results
The Customer Networking Solutions (CNS) division reported revenue of $24.6 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2011, up 2% compared to $24.0 million in the same quarter of the prior year. VersaLink gateway product revenue increased in the current quarter compared to the same quarter of the prior year, on broad and robust customer demand, while revenue from modems decreased. UltraLine Series3 revenues of $5.6 million in the quarter were approximately the same as in the prior-year quarter. There were no material software-project revenues during the fiscal second quarter of 2011. CNS gross profit decreased by $0.2 million, with gross margin decreasing to 16.3%, compared with 17.5% in the prior-year quarter. Operating expenses dropped by $0.6 million, compared with the prior-year quarter. This decrease occurred in spite of increased investment in the HomeCloud initiative. As a result, the CNS results improved to operating income of $0.2 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2011, compared with an operating loss of $0.2 million in the same quarter of the prior year.
Revenue in the Outside Plant Systems (OSP) division was $16.1 million in the quarter, up 24% compared to $13.0 million in the same quarter of the prior year. OSP revenue continues to benefit from strong demand for its products that service the market for backhaul of cellular traffic. Fiscal 2011 second quarter gross profit increased by $1.8 million, or 34%, as a result of increased sales. Gross margins were 45.5%, compared with 42.0% in the prior-year quarter. Operating expenses increased $0.5 million, reflecting both increased activity and OSP’s ongoing development of new Ethernet-based products for the cellular backhaul market. The resulting operating income for OSP was $4.3 million, up $1.3 million versus the same quarter of the prior year.
Conference Plus (CP) revenue was up slightly to $10.4 million in the quarter, compared to $10.3 million in the same quarter of the prior year. Gross profit increased by $0.2 million on better gross margins, and operating expenses were $0.1 million higher. Operating income of $1.1 million therefore improved by $0.1 million, versus the same quarter of the prior year.
On a consolidated basis, fiscal second quarter revenue of $51.1 million was up 8%, or $3.7 million, compared with $47.4 million in the same quarter of the prior year. Gross profit increased $1.9 million, and gross margins were 32.3%, compared with 30.8% in the same quarter of the prior year. Operating expenses were essentially unchanged at $11.5 million. The gross profit improvement therefore translated to a $1.9 million increase in consolidated net income, which was $4.8 million, compared with $2.9 million in the same quarter of the prior year.
“With Outside Plant leading the way, all three of our divisions produced increases in both revenues and operating profits this quarter, compared with the prior-year quarter,” said Chairman and CEO Rick Gilbert. “This is another outstanding quarter for Westell.”
