thanks, it didn't appear immediately on Yahoo search but one more click and it showed up @ ~ 24.
Nope, I'm wrong, Wickipedia to the rescue! OCS is carbonyl sulfide, methyl mercaptan is CH4S. I'm not sure which one is added to natural gas
Ben, what I meant was that I think OCS, methyl mercaptan, is the chemical added to natural gas to make it odoriferous. Is that correct? I once experienced a small OCS leak and it's horrible.
Thanks for the ELA definition. Much of their earnings appear to be coming from that application. They need to identify and create another cash cow for lasers.
There has to be a correlation between the number of shares outstanding and the number traded (and of course I understand that a split doesn't necessarily affect the net value of one's holdings). Maybe the split should be 4-to-1 with 100 million outstanding.
The trading is too thin, 50 million shares outstanding might help. I seem to recall that they proposed a split during the FO bubble around 2000 and then cancelled it when the bubble blew. The stock at that time reached 100+ very briefly. Does ELA stand for excimer laser applications?
by 2015 I can imagine earnings in excess of $4, stock around $100 and a beneficial 2/1 split.
