    Having a little trouble understanding why

    this puppy isn't blasting off. Seems to me it should be a traders dream with the news out of China. Also has an element related to housing recovery. Funny. Maybe marijuana, 3-d printing, bitcoin and other hot topics are eclipsing good old pandemic disease as a vehicle for irrational trading behavior.

    • I've been long APT for a while...since the $1.20's...and still am. Devil advocate is that sure, its possible that 'bird flu' gives a boost at some point to sales, but it that happens, itll only be a fairly small one time event.

      On the far more relevant housing side, last quarters numbers were disappointing, with a loss from operations, and margins actually got worse. If margins cant rebound, it will take a pretty large increase in sales to really get some decent leverage on eps. And the March quarter is their seasonally weakest quarter. Hopefully, their facing/roofing products gain traction in the spring.
