I looked up the gragh of ASE and discovered that although the current analysis seems to one of upward mobility, I personally believe that any new purchases of ASE to be folly. Perhaps you have purchased the stock at a much lower price and can realize a profit. As for me, MAGSF offers what I look for when purchasing stock. It has good growth potential, and should go up steadily until the pallet machines tested at JFK is approved for use by the Faa, at which time I believe the stock will climb at a faster pace. Patience is the best friend that an investor has. Speculators, however, have quick feet. Don't expect any stock to have all positive days. The political envirnment in the U.S. has more to do with small cap stocks being depressed than most people realize. I feel that normalcy will be restored before the first quarter of 1999. I wish all investors success and good will. wwestjr.
