"What impresses me the most about AFOP is its ability to grow and generate very strong margins in a category that's not known for having consistent growth and strong operating margins," said Alex Henderson, an analyst at Needham & Co. in New York City.
Some industry observers view companies that supply fiber-optic parts as operating in a commodity business. But when it comes to AFOP, Henderson disagrees.
"With AFOP, it is not discrete components," he said. "It's the integration that has allowed them to be dominant and produce more value. They're going from piece parts to full modules."
What a thoughtful and compelling financial analysis. It is geared to all those who rely upon Yahoo message boards for investment advice. To those people, see ya.
So, forget about p/e, earnings, growth, debt ratio, p/s, future outlook of the sector, etc. instead, make your investment decision based upon a statement by someone named mtombaj1359 who says you're a hog about to get slaughtered.
everything you just mentioned looked great a few months ago too.... it still got throttled by shorts for several months making major moves up and down on no news. i'm just saying this stock is in a very uncertain position right now. all the tech measures you mentioned are literally useless here. you don't know what the big money is about to do. if you stay long, use a stop loss, or you could see 25% losses in no time, on strong numbers and good news.
