You guys caught me on a bad day on Friday. IMHO this ia a real company with real profits. The nano tech prospect of this company has been way overblown. This is not a nanotech company. They make tools that make semiconductors. They sell tools to companies that are working on nano technology but so is every other semiconductor equipment producer. The orders are comming. At this price its a no brainer. Buy some and check the price out in 6 months. Then you'll see a sustainable gain.
Can you show me where the company is making profits? It looks to me like that last 4 quarters, they lost money, and it looks like sales are way down this quarter. This company is headed towards that bumpy road towards bancruptcy in my opinion. Lost their case against patent infringement against lam really fueled the fire in my opinion.
lets see so is lam research,applied materials, varian associates,nanometrics(not) Kla tencor, Toyko electron,Nikon,Cannon etc.. The money these companies make including tegal is in semiconductor applications. As sexy as nanotech is name me 3 products in the next 3 years that will produce say 500 million in profits. Nanotech as far as semiconductor companies are concerned is providing tools for R and D. There may be big money in the future but it is years away.
