Sales, Profits Going Up For Buying Groups
Richard Glikes, Executive Director, Home Technology Specialists of America (HTSA): I think the first half of the year will be good, up 10 or 15% versus the prior year. I think the second half depends on construction. I think if it comes back even tepidly, we'll have a good second half. There are some larger homes being built right now and there seems to be a new consumer attitude. And that combination, that confidence, is good for our business, because the affluent will build first. All of a sudden, people are coming in with plans again, and that's a good thing.
