Yes, I follow upgrades / downgrades constantly, analyzing every one. ASCA is largely and widely recommended by brokerages. I recommend that everyone buy up more shares during this opportunistic market dip.
What a bunch of dreamers. Just look at the stock price. This stock is performing just as bad as AGY (even worse recently). The stock is saying that not only will the expanded gambling in Nebraska pass, but that MUCH higher taxes in Missouri are a sure thing, and probably sooner than anyone thinks. Not a single analyst is willing to come out and make a strong statement to support this stock, and even the pathetic old CEO refuses to say anything to stabilize the stock price. On down days, this stock drops over 5% on heavy volume, and on the very rare up days, it can barely manage a 2% gain on puny volume. Everyone is dumping this stock, and the idiot CEO has much less reason to care about the stock price now after dumping 2 million of his own shares in a "private placement" last year (and apparently whoever bought those shares is dumping them bigtime now). As soon as all the insiders dump their shares, and all the analysts have gotten their clients out, just wait for the downgrades. What a POS stock, and POS CEO who pisses on stockholders and tells them that it's raining.
