Wondering if you all been looking at this stock, and where's you all think its going. The options look really neat on it. Here is a profile of them. c-rock Alliant Techsystems conducts its business through three business groups: Conventional Munitions, Defense Systems and Aerospace. For the 6 months ended 9/30/01, revenues rose 52% to $822.8M. Net income from cont. ops. and before extra. item increased 20% to $37.3M. Revenues reflect the acquisition of Thiokol Propulsion Operations. Higher income was partially offset by increased SG&A expenses and higher interest expenses.

I did not know it split. Its been in the 80's this past month. You must be happy if you got it a while back. Check out the options, some neat pricing for 90 calls and even 95 calls. Could pick up a quick grand for one till May. One for Feb looks good. c-rock

They have ops out here in SLC. I know a chem engineer that works for them. Good business. Take a look at recent 10-Q's and 10-K's (at the edgar site) along with any write ups in the biz press. Anything has to be better than moron, I mean enron!

Alliant is also in the process of purchasing Federal ammunition... for what it is worth.

Want to hear something even funnier? My Enron options strike price was $89.00, from Dec. 29 of last year. However, I was laid off before the six month vesting period. Not that it matters, as they'd be worthless now anyway. I had a co-worker who pumped all of his 401k money into Enron stock, and I'm sure he's kicking himself right now. At one point, at it's highest, he had well over $30k in their stock. I sure hope he cashed out before it sank too low. God Bless Texas

All that is good and everything for ATK Here is a little history. ATK was born when HoneyWell spun off its Marine and Defense Systems Group in 1990. It purchased Hercules AeroSpace in 1995 and Thoikol Propulsion recently. They make a number of Defense related Gadgets. But they seem to be putting themselves in the position of being able to help put America in space even further. Their Primary government contracts are with Nasa and the US Air Force. They have $50,000,000 dollars in liquidity and good sales they are a strong company it seems but their industry in the last three months is down (an average of three companies in the same field puts them down %18 over the same period last year???), however that will reverse when Military supplies of munitions (almost every type) starts dwindling. They have a 3 month backorder and A good solid footing. They seem to be in a strong position for Nasa operations over the next 10 years<<
