  1. Esterline Technologies is one of my current holdings. Does anyone have knowledge on their ESL software for gaming? I understand this is an emerging market for them but would like to keep my ear to the ground!!

    Many of ESL's Technologies and Products utilized in other markets are also useful in the gaming world, such as dynamic and programmable panels, switches and video surveillance products. Also their core capabilities serving this market include interface technologies.

    With the advances in the gaming sector there is a real desire to utilise such technology to provide the ultimate gaming experience. I would be monitoring closely for activity between ESL and some of the players in the gaming industry as the release of a game utilising ESL technology would be huge.
  3. Thanks Trev, I'm not aware of any developments in this field. I know that ESL is involved in the design and manufacture of innovative touch, sensing, and control human interface systems for leading original equipment manufacturers. They define the user experience for specialized medical equipment, advanced military and security solutions, industrial equipment, high tech gaming applications, and custom designed input components.

    Again it's the high tech gaming applications that for me are an exciting new field. Just look at the likes of the new MW3 how amazing the graphics etc are. Imagine combining this with state of the art, defense technology! It really is futuristic stuff and I believe a great opportunity for investment.

    Hi Jane, with regard to the ESL Software, I've tried to do some further research into this but have come up short of finding any partnerships etc with regard to ESL Software. They don't appear to be trading with any other software company, but as before it is more their technology that would be utilised by a software company to integrate into the gaming arena.

    You guys crack me up...
  9. Interesting to see that today, shares of Esterline Technologies (NYSE:ESL) have crossed bullishly above their 10-day moving average of $52.20 on a volume of 175K shares. This may provide short-term investors a chance for a long position, as such a crossover often suggests higher prices in the near term.

    Esterline Technologies share prices have moved between a 52-week high of $82.28 and a 52-week low of $47.48 and are now trading 12% above that low price at $53.10 per share. Over the last five market days, the 200-day moving average (MA) has gone down 0.5% while the 50-day MA has declined 1.1%.

    Esterline Technologies (NYSE:ESL) has potential upside of 55.4% based on a current price of $53.10 and analysts' consensus price target of $82.50. The stock should run into initial resistance at its 50-day moving average (MA) of $54.34 and subsequent resistance at its 200-day MA of $67.20.
  10. By the way thanks Preciousstones, I'll be following James industries link with ESL, they don't appear to be listed however so maybe not as fruitful as I'd hoped.
