    According to Barchart, $ACU is a stock to keep long term and it's a STRONG BUY stock also according to them. The market is bad today for almost every stocks, it happend. Donc panic sell, you will regret it for sure. Solar energy is part of the new green economy, it's barely starting.

    As long as Willie Coyote still gets the roadrunner gear from ACME, stock price will recover

    Looking at the new 10-k, I see yearly taxes were reduced 1.5 million dollars by "permanent items". No discussion of "permanent items" that I could find in the 10-k. Was this significant fact discussed elsewhere?

    Johnson's total comp package increased 30% in 2017! Company awarded options amounting to about 8% of total shares. North Star, save us please.

    I recommend listening to the ACU presentation of 10/12 (link on web site). It uses the slide deck posted some time ago, but the narrative by Mr. Johnson was very impressive. Maybe next year, they will record a narrative when they initially post the slide deck.

    I'm holding several Canadian stocks and it seems that they are underperforming the market since the correction started in the broader market. Nasdaq is close to its recent ATH but my Canadian stocks are still down 30 to 60%.

    company filed:
    "The Registrant’s Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2021, could not be filed within the prescribed time period (on or before March 16, 2022) because of delays in the completion of managements evaluation of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting which, in turn, resulted in delays in the completion of the audit of the registrant’s financial statements by the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm. These activities require the expenditure of considerable time and resources of the Company. The delays were due primarily to staffing shortages exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, including within our finance team.

    The Company intends to file its Annual Report on or before the prescribed due date of March 31, 2022. We anticipate that the Annual Report will contain no changes to the financial results announced in the Company’s press release furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to the Registrant’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed on March 1, 2022.

    Tough quarter. Couldn't listen to CC, but why the reduced tax rate for Q3? This positively impacted NI by $150K or 4 cents per share. Need 9.3% sales growth in Q4 to achieve sales target. Too much inventory - not sure what they mean by reducing by $1 million - from what level? This deserves a 12 PE at best - so a stock price of maybe $15 per share. That is generous given they have missed EPS estimates for the past 4 quarters. And who would by them - a basket of product lines. Look at what happened to Newell (NWL). They have 2 people making well over $1 million in salary running this small company. The Board of Directors is asleep.

    I see stockholders are not reassured by the declaration of the dividend. I do not blame them. I will say that while management does not tend to mention negative things, except in the context of correcting them, I think you can probably trust what they do say, notwithstanding eps projections may be wrong.

    I would have thought an insider, e.g. CFO, couldn't sell stock until the 10-Q came out, but Mr. Driscoll sold some after the 8-k, and did that last quarter also. Sometimes, a 10-Q can cast a quarter in a different light.

    I don't understand what triggered the recent run up in stock price, or the current run down.

    $ACU Interview of ACU CEO Walter Johnsen, audio webcast at thewallstreetresource.com

    Judging from the stock price drop,Mr. Johnson's act is wearing thin. He does a good job at focusing on the positive, but fails to acknowledge and come to grips with the negative. The office supply industry is in a secular downtrend I suspect. On-line is still accounting, apparently, for "over" 10% of sales, which does not seem enough to be causing so much problem. ACU has been diversifying, so perhaps we just need to accept a pause in growth for a while until office supplies become even a lesser part of the whole.

    Very low volume. Anyone have any idea why?

    Lets see if CEO and COO buy some shares out of their own pocket with stock so low. Doubt it

    They never talk about the first aid business - which I think is a big piece after the acquisitions a couple of years ago

    I used google maps to see about driving from the ACU warehouse in Rocky Mount to Washington, DC, and there is apparently no problem with the roads. At one time there was a detour around a stretch of I95 going from up North to Florida.

    Despite congratulating Johnson on a great quarter, analysts obviously were not fooled and stock price has gone nowhere. Pre-tax income was up 4.2% which would not be so bad if investors could be confident that Johnson's compensation will not go up a lot yet again.
