I ran a PEG calculation on DSS not too long ago and this company's stock was fairly valued in this price range at that time. We currently own DSS shares and continue to add to our position. I don't want to presume what you already know about the company so forgive me if I repeat something of which you are already aware. In August of last year, Quantum separated its stock, dividing the tape storage (DSS) from the hard disk drive (HDD). Quantum is the inventor of DLT technology, of which there is a strong demand in the marketplace. As such, Quantum gets royalties from other companies selling/using DLT technology. This can be very profitable, as you can imagine. Tape (as opposed to Disk Drive) is a cheaper alternative to the every increasing problems of data storage, which is why it is so wildly popular. The potential, in my humble opinion, is superior. Disk drive storage has fallen out of favor and I think we'll see this stock (DSS) grow with its profits. I encourage you to research the numbers objectively and then factor in the more subjective potential. I think you'll agree we have a (currently) sleeping winner here.
