    You say, look at the numbers? OKAY $$$$

    Yes, lets look at the numbers !!!

    Try this:

    The recent numbers show that ASEI had a bad quarter because sales were down

    Past numbers show a stock that spent the majority of the last year trading between $60 and $80

    With peaks to the $90�s

    This week changed everything

    A lot more people will start looking at ASEI and their hardware

    The $90�s could happen again

    Keep and eye on the numbers, last quarter means nothing, now that terror is back in the spot light

    • Earnings have been DECLINING for 3 qtrs. in a row. Revenues are DOWN 40% from a high posted just a few qtrs. ago.

      ZBV sales have been the ONLY growth engine for ASEI in the past 18 months and they are PLUNGING.

      Competition/new technologies from the big boys is killing ASEI.

      Analysts know it...

      ASEI is desperate.

      <<<<<<The results badly missed Wall Street expectations, sending the company's shares tumbling in electronic premarket trading. The stock was off $6.70, or 14.6 percent, to $39.10 after closing Tuesday at $45.80 on the Nasdaq.

      Net income in the three months ended June 30 fell to $6 million, or 41 cents per share, from $7 million, or 78 cents per share, in the year-ago period. The company has about 9.4 million shares outstanding.

      The latest quarter included 14 cents per share in stock-option expenses and a tax rate that rose to 41 percent from 23 percent last year, taking 13 cents off earnings.

      Wall Street was looking for profit of 73 cents per share, according to Thomson Financial.

      Revenue dropped 18 percent to $29.9 million from $35.2 million, missing the Street estimate of $39 million.>>>

      Competition (L-3, GE, Smith, Rapiscan, etc.) and new technologies (puffers, millimeter wave, etc.) are resulting in huge sales slowdown.

      <<<Ryan Beck...."The EPS estimate for 2007 has been reduced from $4.00 to $2.34">>>
