I usually buy around the 10 week sma, which is where it is now. Although, it all depends on your time frame. Right now it is in a downtrend so you might wait until you see it make a higher high and lower low.
This company looks like it has a lot of potential especially in light of the environmental awareness that is gripping the country. Also, it has good numbers to back it's business. I think this company has a long way to go but am just wondering what would be a good entry point.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Stock is holding up well with decent volume. Doesn't seem like it will take much volume to get it really moving higher. I'm holding out hope for recycling and replacement growth and news. Not sure how ApplianceSmart stores are doing but always seem busy when I go there. Have a nice day.

It is too cheap IMO. I think with another quarter or two of good earnings the stock will move much higher. At a p/e of 5 it's crazy cheap. That's why when the last quarter was released it moved higher on over 1M shares. It's traded about another 1M shares in the weeks since earnings release. There are only about 5.5M outstanding. It won't take much for it to double in price. I've been buying more the last few weeks. Kind of continues to be a no brainer stock. Add in the epa guidance coming with the carbon credits they produce can only help. Possible expansion of the GE backbone for Home Depot from 13 states to eventually nationwide!! I think it's a good bet it will move higher. At lease I'm long!! Have a nice day.
This is the primary reason or these are the primary reasons I've been in this company for years. Perhaps this company can finally be recognized by the folks who do more than play games.
There's nothing specific yet, but the framework sounds like it's right in ARCI's sweet spot:
The rule, scheduled to be completed a year from now, will give much flexibility to the states. States can decide how to meet the reductions, including expanding renewable-energy generation, working with other states to create regional plans and investing in or creating new energy-efficiency programs, according to EPA documents. The agency doesn't explicitly say that states could join or create new cap-and-trade programs—which allow companies to trade allowances or credits for emissions—but people close to the rule-making say that will be one of the options. Many utilities likely will opt to use cap-and-trade given that it is a more-flexible option than stricter compliance, but congressional Republicans and some conservative interest groups have criticized this as cap-and-tax, saying that if companies have to pay for emissions allowances, it amounts to a hidden tax on them, which could be passed to customers.
Please understand, I never said the price won't or couldn't rise. I only said there are players who use short selling, naked short selling, fails to deliver, and cyclicality to keep the prices as low as possible. They make money from triggering stop loss settings of real shareholders who use those things thinking they'll "lose less" money by jumping in and out of owning a stock instead of buying and holding. Sometimes they do it at the request of others, as "market mercenaries" if you will.
If the fundamentals, not only of a company but the economic niche it operates in are to an investor's (you/your) liking, buy it when you can and hang on for the ride. You'll do better in the long run (longer than allowing the manipulators to dictate your actions).
Now, as to my contention there is someone in the wings intent upon buying this company, make no mistake, these activities in the trading, both intraday and interday, signal this kind of interest. Either that, or they're out to kill it, either for political or economic reasons--both exist.
The latest Q's are indeed attracting the attention of the tutes.
More buyers than sellers? I bought a few more shares today myself. It's a no brainer to me at the current level but it takes time for the market to see the value. I think the street is starting to see all the positives plus the low valuation. This is my largest position by far other than some cash! I'm not in any danger of the 5% rule but wish I was!! Carbon Credits, possible expansion with GE/ Home Depot, plastic sorting could add .30-.40, just way to many things to really get the stock rocketing higher. I'm trying not to be in love or unrealistic but this could be a huge percentage gainer. Have a nice day.
Guess what else it is?
Yup! You guessed right--IF you said it was three trading days before the last trade date for the May "B" Short Interest report period.
One more time. For those who use short interest to suppress the share price without it showing up as an increase in the "Reported" short interest, today is the last trading day they can buy shares to cover the evidence of their activities. It just happens that the recent interest--including that of the 'tutes (institutions, for those who aren't up on these things) in owning shares of this company--has acted as a buffer to the interests of those doing the manipulation. Three trading days is the "Trade date plus THREE" or T+3 necessary to be able to deliver shares they "borrowed" to create an oversupply, thus distorting the normal pricing effects of the supply:demand ratio.
That buying interest has been spurred on by improving quarterlies (not that they were that bad to begin with, by any means). It helps to suppress the manipulators' effectiveness in holding down the takeover lowball price they have in mind as an offer buyout target.
If folks don't panic when they throw out those 100-200 share trades that drop the price in between each SI report period's last trade date in their attempts to trigger some shareholders' pre-set stop loss points, these manipulators can get stuck running the prices even higher and at their expense, too.
Make 'em feel real pain.
Great to see the interest rate is 3.15% and the bank requires a coverage ratio of 1.1 to 1 and they are over 5.0 to 1!!! Too many positive things and the valuation is low, imo. The p/e is 5, really too cheap. Just a matter of time and we will be much higher price per share. I think investors will really bid it up in the next few months. If they get the plastic sorting equipment in and working and can make the numbers much stronger for AAP and they will have justified the business segment. I think they are getting close to something more national with GE. I don't know how that will look but GE and arci both have a lot to gain from national rollout. I'm as excited as I've ever been for the long term stable growth of arci. I just hope somebody doesn't buy it out but there are a lot of shares close to mgmt. so its whatever Jack wants I would guess. Have a nice day.
Sounds like they could have dramatically higher profits at AAP if they can get sorting equipment for the plastic. I think they might grow the recycling locations this year. All things look very good.
This is clearly a no brainer price level. I'm already loaded up and love watching it play out. We are at less than 5 p/e with increasing earnings. Given potential growth with GE and other growth along with carbon credit gaining strengh makes this very likely a big gainer. Have a nice day.
