A buy-out is highly unlikely IMO. The poison pill is in place. ASEI has been around for many years with no offers from the bigs. CEO not interested in developing stock value at this time. Seems OSIS gets all the favorable reviews. Why is ASEI not getting publicity yet? Why do the leading analysts shun ASEI? With all the product developments ongoing why isn't this stock riding high in the 90s or low 100s? Maybe the public will eventually decide they prefer the scan over a real pat down...or a terrorist successful downing of a cargo plane...or a ship in a major harbor? I don't know what it will ever take to get this stock rolling. It seems to be satisfed hovering around the low 80s. Sigh.
My major complaint about ASEI is that it is a thinly traded company. IMO it is too thinly traded. The only solution is to continue growth and earnings, split many times....and eventually have enough shares to attract major analysts and investors. So what is wrong with having a split right now? I know many smaller investors skip Buffet's Berkshire and other high priced stocks because of their price. Sounds like some of you are determined the present float of ASEI is just fine. Why?
