    stock price

    For someone like myself who prefers to see a company with minimal short and long term debt on its balance sheet, and positive earnings each quarter (even if below analyst's expectations) why is this stock's price tanking?

    Have the most expected users of these X-ray detection systems have them in place currently, so that we may now expect a drop in future unit sales? How rapidly does the technology change and what has been this company's response to these changes? What is the mix of product vs service revenue and what segment of the business carries larger margins?

    Seems to me that a company with a pristine balance sheet paying 4.0% in today's investment world would be very attractive indeed especially with security first and foremost on many people's radar screens.

    Anyone out there who can provide some insights on this company, would greatly be appreciated.

    • ASEI has rarely had smooth progressions in quarterly results . Because the stock is thinly traded it moves a lot on relatively low volume . I suspect there are people who play with it regularly because it's so easy to move.

      I've been in it almost since the company was formed and am used to these swings. The dividend makes it easier to sit through the storms.

      Everything about the company, finances, business area, products etc are better than ever.
