Earlier this week, CAPS member TMFTailwind succinctly summed up the TESSCO bull case for our community:

This wireless networking equipment distributor and wireless broadband system "architect" is a play on the proliferation of wireless devices. As broadband and wireless providers race to improve their infrastructure to meet rocketing data demand, TESS benefits. The company is led by Founder/Chairman/CEO/President Richard Barnhill, who has significant skin in the game, owning over 20% of shares. Management is incentivized to increase EPS and has done so consistently over the last few years. A ~11x forward P/E multiple for a company in a strong demand environment with solid growth prospects looks like an attractive opportunity.
