I took one of our interns to the SAIC (NYSE: SAI) annual shareholder meeting last Friday.

It was fiarly uneventful except for the speaking out against one of the Board members. I've captured my thoughts on that in this article:

SAIC turned in another solid year -- it still has a fantastic win rate (>70%) which means it is staying disciplined and has a great reputation. I'd expect share buybacks to continue and more acquisitons in FY-2012.

I was able to speak to CEO Walt Havenstein for a few minutes. I asked him about the company's efforts in breeding the next generation of scientists and technologists. He immediately launched into a spiel about their partnerships with local colleges and even their presence in sponsoring robotics competitions (which he judges and gets very excited about).

I expect another solid, if unexciting, year from SAIC in 2012.
