Hi Happy,
Thanks for your response. I have no specific answer to your inquiry.

I came to be aware of this company through my daughter, a former IBMer. When DASTY bought the ENOVIA line from IBM, she was one of the 40 employees that went with the package. They have strong links to IBM,
and are still in Charlotte, NC.

Enovia, ranked between 3rd & 4th in its field of 6-8 (per data I saw in one publication), may be poised to move higher in the next year or so.

Of course, there are many players under the DASTY umbrella and they probably have some things coming down the pike from several of those. What has caused the stock increase this quarter and why it hovers where the stock is is beyond me. IMHO the stock, being French, is relatively unknown (judging from the few posts) and hasn't caught the attention of many investors in the USA. It certainly seems like a stable company and is involved in major high tech software development for large performance industries. What is your take on this?

I certainly support your theory of a long term player.
I'm in for a long ride and will add more on the dips.
Happy investing!
