    Have a look at ticker ILUS as well my fellow investors, they are rapidly expanding & uplisting in 2022. ILUS International is a rather new company, they have increased profits and revenue every quarter since inception.
    ILUS Q1, 2022 revenue is up 482% over Q1, 2021. This does not even include the revenue from a couple of their most recent acquisitions.
    ILUS just announced a 100-million dollar plus in revenue acquisition.
    This news came out of Yahoo Finance on 5/25/2022.
    In addition to this large acquisition, ILUS has just announced that they have acquired Wikisoft, ticker WSFT. WSFT is now a member of the ILUS family.
    ILUS is in the process of becoming a conglomerate, with several different companies and divisions under the ILUS umbrella.
    ILUS manufactures EV's, UAV's, and Drones to name a few of their many business endeavors. They are an M & A company and growing fast.
    ILUS is about to begin manufacturing the E-Raptor, the worlds first and only six-wheel all electric utility vehicle. This will take place at the new 600,000 plus square foot facility in Serbia. It is a part of the significant deal that ILUS has recently signed with the European Union. ILUS will incorporate in the manufacturing process urban mining / battery recycling.
    (Please see the ILUS / E-Raptor website to view the E-Raptor)
    ILUS holds patented firefighting / safety technology as well. They are trying to assist with the containment of both EV battery, and wildfires. The wildfires out west are a major concern and solutions are being developed.
    ILUS holds patented technology that can contain EV battery fires significantly faster than current traditional methods. (Water mist nozzle)
    ILUS has completed "8" acquisitions in the last 16 months. Vira Drones is one of the more significant. The estimated valuation is over 1- billion dollars.
    ILUS is also reducing their number of outstanding shares by 180 million shares, in addition to all the other excellent news they have recently released. Please see OTC Markets for their most recent share reduction that has been posted. They always do what they say they will do, always.
    ILUS International is in a very substantial, long-term agreement with the European Union, and will begin manufacturing a variety of vehicles including those used by the military and defense sectors in Europe, as well as the private sector. ILUS is at least worth a look, certainly undervalued.

    it is good to save money but very wise to invest, cause your money works for you and grows more profit at the same thing while you just sit back and earn 100% income
    Its every moms dream to work from home to save on commuting and to be able to save on childcare and be there for their kids, that's the dream for me as well

    longs that have been invested in Rockwell Automation for many years understand the issue with the supply chain and inflation. I'm not buying more until the fed gets inflation under control, BUT I'm also not selling this top company. HOLD and be happy with the dividend. Management will work through this, even with the challenging circumstances. GLTA

    Name change to Rockwell wanna-be Automation ?
    Even after todays stock plunge, your new P/E ratio is 32.
    Is that warranted ?
    This looks like an overly complex company, that may need to devolve into smaller pieces ?

    That’s laughable. $4.6 billions in backlog. Problem is that it’s stuck in backlog because of no chips.

    You guys do realize Rockwell has a stock buyback in place? 1.5B is set aside. I’m guessing they are buying up some this week.

    Still overvalued at current levels. Fair value is about 18 times TTM earnings IMO

    September 14, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Rockwell Automation, Inc. (NYSE: ROK) and Ansys (NASDAQ: ANSS) today announced that the enhanced Studio 5000 Simulation Interface now connects with Ansys digital twins. This gives automation and process engineers new ways to use simulation to improve the design, deployment, and performance of industrial operations.
    "Connecting the digital and physical worlds with Studio 5000 Simulation Interface creates tremendous value for users," said Shane Emswiler, senior vice president of products, Ansys. "It can help them go from conceptual designs to physical equipment faster and at a lower cost. It can provide useful new insights during production. For instance, users can apply what-if scenarios to understand the impact of changes on a process. They can create virtual sensors to estimate values that are otherwise too expensive or not possible to get today, and they can predict outcomes like failures that hurt the bottom line."
    The Studio 5000 Simulation Interface allows users to connect a digital twin to either an emulated or physical controller. Connecting to an emulated controller can help them optimize production at the design stage before they have a physical controller or equipment. Connecting to a physical controller allows them to create a digital twin of how the equipment should run and compare it against actual performance.

    "We made great strides in the quarter on a number of fronts, despite the continuing effects of COVID and supply chain shortages. Record orders were broad based across all industries and businesses, and continued strategic investments including the Plex acquisition position us very well for the future," said Blake Moret, Chairman and CEO.

    Fiscal 2021 Q4 Financial Results

    Fiscal 2021 fourth quarter sales were $1,807.8 million, up 15.1% compared to $1,570.0 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020. Organic sales increased 12.6%, currency translation increased sales by 1.5%, and acquisitions increased sales by 1.0%.

    Fiscal 2021 fourth quarter net income attributable to Rockwell Automation was $78.5 million or $0.67 per share, compared to $262.7 million or $2.25 per share in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020. The decreases in net income attributable to Rockwell Automation and EPS were primarily due to fair-value adjustments recognized in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021 and fiscal 2020 in connection with our investment in PTC (the "PTC adjustments"). Fiscal 2021 fourth quarter Adjusted EPS was $2.33, up 20.7% compared to $1.93 in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020, primarily due to higher sales and a lower tax rate.

    Pre-tax margin was 0.2% in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021, compared to 19.1% in the same period last year. The decrease in pre-tax margin was primarily due to the PTC adjustments.

    Total segment operating margin was 17.9% in the fourth quarter compared to 20.2% a year ago. The decrease in segment operating margin was primarily due to higher planned spend, the reinstatement of incentive compensation, and the reversal of temporary pay actions, partially offset by higher sales. Total segment operating earnings were $323.2 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021, flat compared to $317.9 million in the same period of fiscal 2020.

    Cash flow provided by operating activities in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021 was $204.1 million, compared to $325.8 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020. Free cash flow was $160.4 million compared to $303.8 million in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2020, primarily due to higher working capital.

    Our guidance reflects strong demand as well as record backlog entering into fiscal year 2022. Supply chain challenges remain dynamic, and our projections assume gradual improvement over the course of the year. 2022 will be a breakout year for Rockwell, with sales expected to exceed $8B as component supply improves. Major new product introductions and recent acquisitions will fuel continued orders growth globally across all industry segments. I'm excited to see our great people bring our strategy to life.

    Why I love ROK and other companies to booster productivity.
    Manufacturers and other businesses can sustain and even increase production, even in the services sector, by investing more in technologies that boost productivity. And it's already happening. The Q2 GDP reports shows that the amount of goods and services that were produced was 1% greater than the total amount of goods and services produced in Q4 of 2019, well before the pandemic struck. That is, GDP has fully recovered and then some to pre-pandemic levels. But more surprising is that all the goods and services produced in Q2 of this year were produced with 4.4% fewer workers than was the case in Q4 of 2019, as measured by nonfarm payrolls. Productivity has been soaring in recent quarters. With workers in short supply in some industries, companies have a greater incentive to invest in labor saving technologies. That seems to be an unexpected silver lining to the pandemic. When workers were lining up to be hired at an low wages there was much less interest in finding ways to increase worker productivity. Consider that the productivity boom of the late 1990s coincided with tight labor markets and rising real wages without runaway inflation.
