In company news, Blonder Tongue Laboratories Inc. ( BDR ) rose to a three-year high Friday after the electronic components company late yesterday reported a big jump in revenue during the three months ended June 30 compared with year-ago levels, also reversing a year-ago net loss.
The company earned $347,000, or $0.06 per share, during the three months ended June 30, improving on a $660,000 net loss during the same quarter last year. Analyst estimates were not available for comparison.
Net sales increased 23.5% year over year to $8.82 million. BDR attributed the higher sales larger to an increase in digital video headend products and analog video headend products offset somewhat by a drop in sales of contract manufactured products.
