In Taipei, Taiwan, as many APT posters already know, the Mass Transit system has demanded that all its riders where MASKS!!!
I did a little research and discovered that there are 2 MILLION DAILY RIDERS ON THE MASS TRANSIT system in Taipei.
IF you think about this a moment, this means 2 million new customers! Also, remember, that a mask's protection against SARS is really only valid for about 4 hours. However, let's be realistic and know that not all riders will replace a mask every 4 hours. However, if each rider replaces a mask just once a week, that's 8 Million mask sales/ per month just to Taipei's mass transit riders! WOW!!! Think about that! MASK SALES WILL ONLY INCREASE AS OTHER CITIES DEMAND THE SAME OUT OF THEIR MASS TRANSIT RIDERS!!!! Is Beijing or Toronto next? What of San Francisco or New York in a month or two?
CHA-CHING! CHA-CHING! I hear cash register bells going off! APT going to $4+ real soon! BUY NOW!!!
If you are so pessimistic about APT, then why are you still posting on the board. Unless of course, you are one of those market makers who need to maniplulate the stock to cause it to drop. Either a shortie or a trader who is in and out each day or week. Then you have good reason to ne negative.
Just an opinion.
If you can't stand it here, just leave and find another stock to short.
honestly - I think you should sell now. APT islikely to bleed $0.05 a day until it gets some news to move it. It will not trade to your convenience. You are one of 1000's of shareholders thinking the same thing right now - they are slowly selling out.
I'll hold my shares for a few months.
I wish you were right, but you are not. Those 2 million riders are wearing surgical masks, not N95. If N95 were available, perhaps some would choose it, but its not. Those little surgical masks are available on every street corner in Asia, and most users launder and reuse.
