Raven Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ:RAVN): Raven sees Aerostar division sales down in Q1 The company said, “We see a number of the positive fourth quarter trends carrying over to the first quarter of the new fiscal year…We look for Engineered Films to take advantage of their higher capacity and improved efficiencies by increasing the volume of pounds processed and maintaining strong profit margins. Applied Technology should continue to show gains in sales and profits, although at a lower rate of growth than recent quarters. At Aerostar, despite strong interest at this point, the order backlog is minimal for aerostats and surveillance systems. As such, division sales in the first quarter are expected to decline from the previous year.” The shares closed at $59.91, down $3.92, or 6.14%.
