In my last Arcam update I wrote that I had sold some of my shares because I felt the stock was at a short term top based on several factors. Since then shares have pulled back 20% from $171.98 to $138 and I am adding to my core position at these lower levels based on their 8th order win in 6 weeks, the proposed 4:1 stock split, and record orders.
