I agree with you 100 %.looking at the history of longbow down grade of Ash i think it time to buy. Oct 29, 2009 ASH was $35 and longbow downgraded from buy the hold and the following six month ASH reached $63 almost doubled. In April 28 2010 Longbow upgraded ASH to buy and the ASH dropped below $50. I really do not how these rating firms make their money. To down grade anything at the last week of the year is very bad.
