Since completing a ten-for-one share consolidation last July, aerospace communications company FLYHT Aerospace Solutions (TSXV:FLY) has seen its share price take a tumble.

The news from a technical perspective is less than rosy, says Hap Sneddon, President and Chief Portfolio Manager at CastleMoore Inc., who argues that the stock which currently trades in the $1.20 range will have trouble getting back over the $1.50 mark.

Calgary-based FLYHT, which provides equipment to enable aircraft to live stream their flight data, reported its first quarter 2018 financials last month, posting revenue of $3.32 million, a 12.3 per cent drop from Q1/17, with EBITDA of negative $487,000, which compared to EBITDA of positive $224,000 in the same quarter of 2017.

At the time, CEO Thomas R. Schmutz, emphasized the company’s hardware division and the role played by its Automated Flight Information Reporting System (AFIRS) in eventually leading to higher SaaS sales.
