    18
    so fasten your seat belt
    and enjoy your
    ride

    ps i just love rumors and don't fight again the
    trend
    go afci!!!!!!!!

    • I also fell into same patterns until I read trading for a living by Dr. Alexander Elder.
      Ibelieve this book will be extremely helpful good luck!

    • afci bid going up slowly now.dont know if it will
      hold, but it may...lets hope...remember we at afci have
      gotten no press today, or in the past few weeks ...the
      general population still doesnt know of fibre, like they
      know of ciena and pair..for those who dont follow afci
      specifically they wouldnt know of it...if you watch cnbc a lot
      you already bought ciena and wouldve bought pair
      today or yesterday..still we wait for that press,rick

    • 10 1/2 LOW....12 1/2 HIGH AT OPEN...LOOKS TO ME
      LIKE fibre wants to make a run back towards that
      level..all we need is a bit of strength in the overall
      market and we should fly into 12s, maybe even 13s..lets
      keep em crossed and hope investors decide to continue
      this rally today... .rick

    • i see a buying opp here...very little on the asks...all bids..this can turn fast with any buying pressure...dunno why..but it looks good right now at 130pm est.stay tuned..

    • im hoping this continues...afci is holding up
      particularly well compared to some of its friends...why ? i
      still see lots of folks lining up to buy this
      stock..will it change soon ? maybe..maybe not...my hopes are
      that the dow turns around today, and the nasdaq can
      make a late run, to push us towards even or
      better..lets hope..it would be nice..NOTE : MANY MORE BIDS
      (BUYS) LINED UP THAN (ASK) SELLS..THIS CAN BODE WELL FOR
      FIBRE IF THE MARKET TURNS AROUND..RIGHT NOW AND MOST OF
      THE AFTERNOON, I SEE ABOUT 30K SHARES LOOKING TO BE
      BOUGHT AT 1/4-5/16, AND ONLY ABOUT A TOTAL OF 3000
      LOOKING TO BE SOLD AT 3/8 7/16....THAT IS NICE AND
      COMFORTABLE TO SEE, RICK

    • i sold my position entirely on the inflated spike
      at the open..i wound up getting 12 3/16 not the
      high, but not bad..i bought back at 11 7/16, tried for
      10 11/16, but it flew up to then..anyways i am now
      heavier into afci then i was before, as i bought more
      with my built up margin buying power...raven is ok..i
      wont blast him anymore,,he just is barking up the
      wrong tree here i think...reason i sold temporarily was
      that ciena was getting spanked...pairgain getting
      spanked too..we mimick them a bit..and the market looked
      to be down substantially...i took a risk buying back
      so many at 11 7/16, but as of now i see tons of buys
      lining up all morning on mylevel 2 for 1/4 to 3/8..i
      mean a lot of support, although that can change fast
      if things around us turn out badly..rick

    • My guess is that MM want two days of close over
      11. When NAS and DOW twitch toward improvement in the
      last hour or two the volume popped up. Closely
      paralleling the index so if it heads south in a big way the
      11 1/4 could go down but otherwise I think we are
      making another base for 14 -15.

    • Seems we have good short term support at 11 1/4
      where alot of the shares traded hands at yesterday
      before the 11th hour runup to 12 (I got suckered into
      the buying frenzy there). Don't think that shorts
      will hold for long given the recent strength in the
      stock. They will take there 1-2 points and cover. Some
      people who bought in at 4-7 may be taking profits now,
      but it seems given the recent bounce off of 8 that
      the recent buyers are not momentum traders and will
      hold for at least medium term appreciation.

      As
      far as I can see, all of the bad news is out of the
      way. The only thing that could drive the stock price
      back down is the loss of Sprint business or something
      equally cataclysmic. That beings said there are many
      possible positive pieces of news that could occur and that
      have already been mentioned. Sometype of substantial
      business deal in China would be very positive. Anyone know
      what AFCI's current situation is in the region? Have
      they reorganized things and started selling?

    • i wouldn't post anymore. let me retract
      that
      statement and say i won't respond to those
      flaming my
      posts.

      spine, thanks for the sentiment. on a very deep
      note
      i've been doing some serious thinking about how
      i
      got in this short squeeze.

      side note: i find
      it
      interesting that real admissions on these boards are

      totally absent. as in life, in relationships,
      where
      the domain of denial reigns and addictions
      reign
      supreme, admiting ones folly, mistakes, errors,
      failures,
      takes great courage and hutzpa (sp?), cohones/balls
      (sp?)
      (maybe someone jewish and someone spanish can correct
      the
      spellings).

      thus, let me admit for my own sake and for
      bringing
      a modicum of truth and sobriety and impecability
      to
      this board.

      hmmmm, i just got this strange
      reference point of
      growing up Catholic (Yes, i survived
      Catholic school),
      and going to confession. only in this
      instance my
      admissions aren't for the sake of
      redemption or salvation,
      there for my own learning and
      growth.

      so last week i was on my high horse posting
      messages,
      not in attempt to influence other's decisions,
      but
      in an attempt to convince myself that my short
      position
      was valid. BIG MISTAKE! what i've learned today is

      that i've been lucky with my other investments, got
      a
      false sense of security based on those successes
      and
      went into uncontrolled folly with my afci
      investment.

      without any clear disciplined strategy, i did not
      set
      realistic expectations; if i had, then if they
      were met
      or not met i would have closed my trade.

      i've
      realised this morning that the way i traded
      afci and
      the way i've invested over the last couple
      of
      years clearly mirror how i do my life, how i
      do
      relationships. i held off covering and taking a
      small loss
      with afci, like how i withold my
      experience/
      feelings in relationship, which always and only
      contributes
      to maintaining a degree of disonance. as time passes
      in
      relationship as it did with afci, when the truth is
      witheld,
      the dissonance turns/turned to pain, then more
      denial, (read
      my posts of late last week), and then
      the pain turns to crisis,
      at which point it is too
      late and an attempt to remedy
      or create resolution
      is very difficult. as in relationship
      or a
      marriage where at your core you know you're unhappy with
      your marriage, unattracted to your wife and deep down
      desire
      a change. however, you're locked in (morgage, kids,
      or just
      plain don't want to deal with seperation
      and pain) so you
      maintain the denial until a
      crisis occurs and the pain you
      avoided is way worse
      than if in the early stages of the
      relationship you
      admited, at least to yourself, better if to your partner,
      that it's not working out and move on or at
      least
      source the problems and create a change.
      my position
      in afci is very similar.

      i'm happy to see
      the correction today and intending
      that we'll at
      least see the 9s again. however, any
      news (ceo,
      etc.) could trigger another spike which keeps
      me in
      a degree of fear (not a healthy place to make

      wise investment decisions. so now
      i have to set
      realistic expectations for my loss
      (difficult to do with
      a volatile stock like afci).

      enuf for
      now!

      cheers everyone and congrats to all who made
      money

    • put out by Dohmen Research letter on this stock
      today...... Buy meaning buy...not buy meaning some kind of
      rating scale...

      Projected first target of
      resistence is indicatedin the 24.00 area...

      Stock
      today is recoiling for another upturn. Some profit
      taking from past couple days upward
      movement.

      Company is not overvalued in my opinion as another poster
      has indicated. Industry average PE...over 32+... lots
      of cash and no debt. Also good upside in coming
      months internationally and strong demand for the product
      line. Discount the merger stuff, because the company
      has too much upside in the stock and not likely to
      get it from a purchasing company. But anything can
      happen.

      The profit takers today should buy back
      in in the 11 to 12 range, because 18 for this stock
      is a no brainer as long as the overall market stays
      strong. If Greenspan cuts rates again, this stock is a
      very good bet for 24.00 sooner than later.

      Just
      some of my thoughts..
