    this sucks for ASEI

    Smiths Detection, Inc., Edgewood, Md., is being awarded a $69,811,290 firm-fixed-priced, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract for the procurement of Rugged Mobile Non-Intrusive Inspection Systems (RMNIIS). The procurement is for 10 RMNIIS with a maximum ceiling of 45 RMNIIS. The contract includes spare parts, outside the continental United States installation, maintenance, sustainment, training, and provisional technical data. Work will be performed in Afghanistan, and is expected to be completed July 2013. Contract funds in the amount of $12,000,000 will expire at the end of the current fiscal year. This contract was competitively procured through full and open competition, with three offers received. The Marine Corps Systems Command, Quantico, Va., is the contracting activity (M67854-11-D-5022).

    • this year....she just downgraded the stock to sell

    • Fabiano said ASEI has protested this award because Smiths has never made these before and is using inferior material.

      The award is currently under review. This is news to me.

    • Elite, I saw that as well.....I'm thinking my puts and put spreads look even better now. Do you think the insiders knew something was up when they dumped all thoose shares?

        I don't know the answer to that question but I do know this...the moment I sell my ASEI stock or instead sell cover calls, this company will get bought out for $ or land a huge contract.

        Of all the companies I've ever owned, I trust this management the most. That said, you'll probably do great with your puts.

        Change of subject. One thing I did find strange that no one mentioned on this board was the non-reaction of the ASEI SP to the recent events in Norway. A few years ago the stock would have jumped 8-10% on that news.

        With all the turmoil in the middle east, I don't see demand for ZBV's declining any time soon. A consolidation of the industry would give the survivors pricing power.
