That "article" seemed like a computer generated piece to me. I read that AP is using computers now to create articles about earnings results, etc. As muwarrior says, AEHR isn't pushing any markets around.
That little article is an example why I don't care much about what The Street publishes in their short blurbs? A $31 million market cap company with less than $200,000.00 worth of shares trading pushing the sector down? What a joke. As to why they are following AEHR, I think the question should be why are there many small firms jumping on the bandwagon? AEHR's potential may be greater than it ever has been since they have been a public company. AEHR's sales could go up 5-10X in the next five years or so if their new products are successful. The share will go up in anticipation of the actual sales as they develop so this has a chance to be a big time winner. Only time will tell though.
