RIP Walter J. Zable. 

I would personally invest in this company. Looks like they would be around for a long time to come. Cubic Corp. has huge potential.
It’s a decision many entrepreneurs face — whether to hold on to the company they built from the ground up or sell and potentially give up control.
For Walter J. Zable, the founder of the military contractor Cubic Corporation, the answer was easy: no sale. But after his death last month, speculation has re-emerged that the publicly traded company might be a takeover target.
The company has 100 percent market share for air combat live training systems in the United States, and an 80 percent market share in both air combat and ground combat training worldwide, according to Jonathan Richton, an associate analyst at Imperial Capital. And any acquirer would be able to tap Cubic’s entrenched — and valuable — long-term relationships and multiyear training contracts with prominent military customers.
