i believe that rev for the q will be inline and total rev for 2010 will come in around 435 million- the earnings for the 4th q might be smaller than earlier assumed because of possible write downs in the fourth - like many companies like to do in order to clean up the balance sheet a little more- rem they went into the 4th with around .83 net. This of course is very old news because i also believe that first q of 2011 must be release by the 15th of May and earnings will be positively impacted by some .21/sh income from dividend from charoong( own some 184,000,000 share-paid a cash dividend of .016- then divide into 13.8 million awpc )I think earning for the fourth can still come in around .15 to .20 only a guess- just looking at the past 3 q's The stock will react more from the guidance of 2011 and the first and current 2nd q we are presently within. Regardless, apwc is a very cheap stock- I will address management concerning a possible dividend-- they have over 5 dollars in cash/sh and could easily give us the div from charoong. Will also address management slow nasdaq approval- most likely due to director that resigned had a problem with the law and if that is the case nasdaq will not let them on the exchange. Conference call is weds morning @ 5 am- ( bummer)-- I will roast them on the ir and pr areas- other than that we should see some very good results- charoong their thailand 51% controlled sub is a great indicator of growth in the area of asia that apwc plays in - china, australia, thailand and singapore. will also ask if they will play a role in Japan's rebuilding! apwc still remains the cheapest stock in my portfolio and still control 35k- a real game changing position with a real game changing company good luck to all apwc investors
I agree with your sentiments. I also suggested marketing in Japan many weeks ago. IR firm is not getting the emails to investors out like they should. I am patient and sitting on 44000 shares I have had for years. Great market potential, but need to be more aggressive on marketing. A dividend would be great. I missed this conference call.
