The profit margins have been fairly strong and the sales growth has been quite erratic. However, the company has an established model with a matured market. However, investors must remember that this is a traditionally low margin business. That could be an overhang on valuations. Overall, the company has niche strengths which it can leverage. This is a high risk stock which can be added to the portfolio with a very longer term perspective. There could be hiccups on the stock in the short run.
