Just a brief note that I bought a small initial position in Adept Technologies, symbol ADEP. You can read my prior assessment at Adept Technology First Look.
This is a very long term investment for me. I have no reason to think Adept is going to go up in price in the near future. There will be an Adept Technology conference call on November 8, this Thursday. I will take notes on it and post them. See my Adept Technology Analyst Conferences page for a link.
I decided to go ahead with the ADEP purchase because I believe there is a future in robotics and that Adept is addressing a significant unmet need. Adept has grown both by acquisitions and by organic growth and appears to be well-managed. Needless to say, that does not guarantee success.
So keep diversified!
