For the most part I can relate to (and enjoy) many of the people on this (supposedly) AMPE board. We all know AMPE is a high-risk, high-reward kind of deal. If you want to counter this AMPE investment with a different kind of investment, look at MMS. Any stock you buy will not effect the price much, and I am not "pumping" - just trying to put forth a tip. This is $2.5B market cap company, so any investments less than a few hundred thousand dollars won't have any impact - but it is a really neat investment. I'm in at $22 (a few years ago) - its at $75+ and 99.7% institutionally owned. I expect a 2:1 stock split and 25% increase in dividends within the next six months. Take a look. Rock solid... conservative... yet huge returns. Like they say "been berry, berry good to me." No skin off my back, and please excuse and forgive what may be totally inappropriate posting on this board. Look at the five year chart. Great growing profits, no debt, tons of cash and growing at 20% a year. A conservative investment with great returns. ... For what its worth.... and again... apologies in advance.
