High level of short interest with still high days to cover. Recent sell off related to 8K detailing potential delay in $30 million SGS order. If totally lost, this would represent 10% of $300 million yearly sales (if flat growth YoY from 2013). Looks like over-reaction and potentially materially undervalued based upon historical growth.
