    A very strong move indicated

    Fresh,

    I completely agree with you. The stock is .12 lower than where it closed the year, despite Amnf having had a truly excellent Q1.. It was certainly unfortunate that the Annual Report allowed people to reasonably deduce that Q1 would be less than stellar. Now that we know the truth and that the good news should continue for Q2 and beyond based on the statements contained in the Q1 release, the stock should at least get back to the highs of last year as an initial target . It may take a few weeks because some people got scared by the sharp decline -- which probably hit some stops by institutional holders who didn't want to risk losing large gains -- and they may need to see the stock recover a bit more before they step in. But I am convinced that that will happen. The last trade of the day not only took out the rest of the asked at 1.82 (5K or 6K shares), but somebody then put in a bid at 1.82 for 2K shares and the asked went to 1.85. If we can close at 1.85 or higher this week, we should be well on our way to a 2 handle IMHO. It was hard to add in the 1.60s and 1.70s without seeing Q1 earnings, but it seems to have been the right thing to do. There was genuine panic for an understandable reason which we now know was not only wrong, but very wrong. Things are very much looking up objectively. I'm betting that the market will soon agree..

  • About 60K shares traded in the last 3 minutes between 1.80 and 1.82. Amazing recovery from the depths on Thursday, and evidence that somebody is out there who thinks the stock is going higher. I couldn't agree more.

    Nice bid out there

    The bid may be due to the filing of the Q1 Disclosure Report today. Here are a few highlights.

    Cost of Goods Sold was down 1% compared to Q1 last year (p.26).

    Cash and cash equivalents were way up compared to 3/31/13:

    .$ 2,847,854 as of 3/31/14 compared to $1,509,869. as of 3/31/13 (p.14)

    International Sales rose to 14% of sales in Q1, compared to 10% a year ago and international sales were reported as strong in Q1.

    The sales pipeline and cash position "currently remain strong".

    I see no negatives at all in the report.

    It is nice to see that even though there is a very large bid .02 above yesterday's close, nobody is biting. Perhaps the tide is turning. We can only hope.

    There had been a large asked at 1.69 , over 40K. I get off the phone and it is all gone with a huge block of 32,474 share at 1.61 having at 2:14 P.M with other sales ahead of it. We're now at 1.69/1.70. Somebody got a huge bargain. I only got 500 at 1.68, not having had any orders in when the sale occurred.

    Hopefully, the selling is over. It makes no fundamental sense IMHO. The earnings and Disclosure Report were excellent and the stock has become cheap on a valuation basis. Plus, at 1.70 the dividend (without any possible increase or special) is 3.8%.

  • But it is very unusual for the bid/ask pre-market to be different from where it was when the stock closed, let alone to change several times, all higher as best I could tell.. It is presently 1.92/1.94.
