Vicor's Strong Margin Expansion Has Made A Believer Out Of Me

I've been dead-wrong on VICR since my initial Seeking Alpha coverage started in September of last year with a "Neutral" rating. I kept thinking the stock was overvalued and I could wait for a better entry point. There were a couple of opportunities, but I missed them. Vicor manufactures a compelling line of proprietary modular power solutions. Sales have been strong of late. With recent margin expansion, the company itself has become a power-house. Vicor has disrupted the power distribution market, has a strong balance sheet, and a bright future for years to come. It has proven it deserves a premium valuation. As a result of the demonstrated high margins, and the dynamic markets VICR participates in (EVs and HPC - just to name two), I am upgrading the stock to "Bullish".
