    Why did they need a private placement at all ?

    The structure of the LLC for the injection wells is more about protecting the rest of AWX from potential liabilities associated with the Wells then it was about corporate funding. I for one am thankful they set this up as an LLC.

    Your comments about Ron are pretty sad "We will be better off when the man drops dead"... Ron is growing the company ... He has made some pretty solid land acquisitions and Has a lot of employees and customers that are happy with the way he has runs AWX ... He runs a business the way my father would .. focused on employees and customers ...

    As opposed to most on Wall Street that put Short term profits and stock price performance ahead of customer and employee satisfaction ...

    Most shareholders are not accredited investors which you needed to be to participate in the private placement. AWX's biggest class A shareholder a Dr. in Youngstown was offered participation.

    You are a smart man roboklerk :-)

    You get AWX and Wall Street and the ways of the World. I hope you know the ways of the Lord as well.

    That is a pretty broad statement... my question to you .... have you ever met or talked with the man personally? My experience with him is that He went out of his way to meet with me personally and answer any questions I had with the company. I was a much smaller shareholder then I am now. I personally found the gentleman very likeable and on the contrary trust him with a bigger portion of my investment portfolio and have been rewarded for that trust. Everyone #$%$ at his lack of publicly touting the stock but at least give him kudos for the business decisions he has made with this company in the last few years. The company is in the best shape it has been in and is smack dab in the middle of an Oil Boom that is just getting started. I wish everyone who disliked and distrusted the CEO would just sell their shares and leave the board. I just don't understand why anyone would invest in a company if they do not trust the management.

    By the way ... Thanks Ron for the 22% revenue growth and the healthy increase in shareholder equity. Keep up the good work!

    You get the idea!

    You should have been around in 2008-2009 when the market went through the mortgage backed security liquidity crisis ... you could pickup a lot of shares below $2 ... It was crazy.

    If you are patient with AWX you will make money and it is a great stock to buy more of as the price declines.

    I actually got so busy at work I was not able to buy more but hopefully the seller is still around tomorrow.

    There was some big buyers out there as well.

    $(292,000) loss in Q4 by my calculations

    You are right share price is not his main focus... Unlike a lot of CEO and Insiders that focus on share price at the expense of the business, its customers and its employees, Ron is focused on His businesses, His employees and His customers. In the short run this for many is considered bad for shareholders, but for me I look at the long run and think it is best for them. This stock in the 15 years that I have owned it has traded as low as 10% of Book Value and as high as 100% of book value. That is what creates opportunities to make money and make lots of it. I suggest that if you don't have faith in the guy in charge then you should dump your shares and move on. As for me ... I have a nice position a nice profit and think Ron and AWX are doing the things that build shareholder value. Family run ... 2 class stocks historically trade at a discount to book value but valuation is realized when the business is sold. It is my belief that sometime over the next 10-15 years this business will grow and ultimately be sold.

    There will be no selloff and if there is ... I will be a very happy buyer. this company is not an ordinary company and it certainly does not trade like an ordinary company. it is a perfect roth ira stock.... Buy it and forget about it... If it goes down in price keep buying .... The lower the share price the more shares you will want to buy. considering the ceo owns 20% of the company he has initiative to enhance longterm shareholder value ... Not focus on shortterm results or short term stock price. the ceo has executed quite well. revenue growth of 22% and a return to profitabilty is a pretty solid year. looking forward you have potential oil well royalties as well as revenues from the injection wells ... And gof course revenues should continue to rise with incresed membership. the real payout may not come in realized share price until the company is sold outright or in pieces and that will probably occur in the next 10-15 years. i'm siting on 100% return on my investment and still look at this stock as a screming buy.

    which is better then the previous forth quarter.

    Revenue growth 22% YOY and they are profitable. Cash is up to almost $2.55 and tangible book is at $11+ share

    No mention of OIL WELL results

    generated almost .50 share in cash ... I hope the stock does go down as I will be a buyer. Everyone take a step back and look at the big picture. An Oil Boom the likes of which has not been seen in OHIO is just in its infancy ... This tiny company is well positioned to benefit on all fronts .... It still is by far the most undervalued and underfollowed company on Wall Street and those who are patient will be rewarded hansomly

    Your timing on this one as good.... This stock is poised for takeoff sometime this year. Thin float stock can get volatile .. should be a nice ride.

    PRCP was good ... AWX is going to be even better over the next few years. The oil boom in the Utica Shale region is just getting started

    NICE TO SEE SOME REAL VOLUME

    This stock is the best risk to reward stock out there. The injection wells are in use.... They also have a producing oil well on their corporate property that they will collect royalties from and with the oil boom the once dead-end golf/county club business will become a real growth engine for them.

    Still only has a market cap of 22 million with assets almost double that and revenues almost triple that. Hard to believe this stock traded at .98 on 2008. I bought a ton below $1.50 and still am not a seller as $6 is still too cheap for this company.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • That happened in the 2005-2008 period when it made its last move to 10

    the utica shale boom is in only in year 2 of an expected 30 year boom ... You would be crazy to think that awx is not going to benefit and the stock price will remain this cheap.

    You would be crazy to short this stock.... This company has had 2 consecutive revenue and earnings misses and the stock is higher then it was before the first miss. Usually Wall Street punishes companies that have consecutive misses. The fact that the stock remain strong points to a much higher price down the road. New management is openly pursuing other venues besides automotive for the Helix technology .... Their core business is solid with record backlogs ... and moving forward earnings comparisons should be great. Solid fundamentals, no debt,, a dividend and a small float bodes well for long term shareholders. Weak hand sold last night and this morning before the conference call but institutional support for this stock is good as shown by the Price action today.

    Sentiment: Buy

    if you liked it at $14-$18 ... you got to love it at $10-12 ... investing is with a long term perspective.

  • edado edado Feb 12, 2014 7:19 PM Flag

    This is a great stock and a great company ... I have owned it since 2000 when it was trading below $2. If you take a long term outlook on a core position and you trade the other portion of a position, you can make a killing. I have bought and sold this stock several times in the last 6 months while holding a nice position for the long term big move to $40 that will happen over the next few years. I am a buyer in after hours and will be a buyer in the morning. The sky is not falling ... The company pays a nice dividend and I imagine the CC will add some clarity to the 2nd half and more importantly 2015.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
