Mcdambras: you seem as well-informed as most on this board, however minimal that may be. Here's my situation: a friend has a financial advisor who has made plenty of money for him. As he looked at his statement recently, among the blue chips and all the foreign country bonds, there was little AMRi. The friend said the advisor had bought 15,000 shares for him. That prompted me to think about dabbling in the company. I'd surmise from your posts that AMRI is on a one-way trip toward ignonomy. But what do you really think?
