APT I think we'll see continuing firmness, today. Jobless claims were down and futures look very good.
This stock is experiencing some manipulation but that will be dusted aside when the right catalyst comes along, like a company PR of business gained.
APT next report is on March 4th, ttulio and it will reflect the additional business garnered during the Ebola crisis. It is going to be a terrific report, imo.

I am expecting several more strong days to follow today's market snapback. That has been the pattern when the market was oversold, previously.
Bodes well for APT!
The rise to 2.63 today shows APT has been down with the entire stock market.
APT held up very well in the market downturn, finding good support at 2.50
They have just been talking down the stock for entry, as wholly disingenuous and despicable as that is.
Now that it's based at 2.50, they'll buy, clam up and eventually root for APT.
Dec. Two rides north, 5.21% on average (entire mkt. in slump)
Nov. Two rides north, 19.49% on average.
Oct. Seven rides north, 14.65% on average.
Sept. Five rides north, 6.28% on average.
Aug. Five rides north, 7.93% on average.
Prob. haven't heard of any of the American companies but sure will be happy to get APT's and others' protective apparel.
If you have ever dealt with the government you'd know it gives preference to small business.
APT is right in the sweet spot fto benefit from theU. S. government's $5.2 BILLION dollars infusion in the fight against Ebola, with emphasis on protective gear.
Cover fellas- as down as the overall mkt. is, APT is not breaking down.
Stacked for the next ride north- which occurs frequently, BTW.
Hang in there, Longs! Don't let the Bears with their throw-away remarks get to you.
APT Share Price Poised To Rise
December 15, 2014 8:13AM
Over the weekend the House, Senate and Executive passed the 2015 Omnibus Spending Bill containing $5.2 billion dollars to fight Ebola
The bill specifically mentions monies for hazmat suits.
APT manufactures hazmat suits and is a well run, consistently profitable company- the type of small company the government favors in awarding contracts.
APT's CEO recently stated it has ample production capacity to manufacture more suits and that its business is quickly increasing in this area, citing a $1 million new order. He also said APT has the money to self finance and revealed a keen interest in ramping up production.
Apt's Revenue Growth of 13.4% vs. its Industry Average of 8.19% evidences an aggressiveness in seeking business.
APT has Strong Cash Flow and Operating Efficiency. It is a low risk company- Best Rating (GMI Risk Rating).
Its P/E of 17.6% is lower than the Five Year Trailing P/E's for its Industry (39%) and S&P 500 Index (25%).
Its closing price Friday of 2.64 reflects only 1.4x's Tangible Book Value.
The stock has overcorrected from a spike to 10.73 two months ago when Ebola news first hit.
Look for a rebound in the PPS starting today with news of Ebola funding.
Suggest you spend some time DDing this, tt. Insiders own 13.6% of company. That's higher than you find in most companies.
Execs do regularly sell shares which is irritating but they are still heavily invested.
It was likely the Senate would approve the 2015 Omnibus Spending Bill and Saturday evening it did that!
Now, both the House and Senate have passed the Bill.
The President is fully onboard and will sign it.
We should now begin alerting. The Bill contains $5.2B to fight Ebola at home and abroad. It specifically mentions money will be directed to protective clothing. Little doubt, well run, protective clothing company APT will participate and benefit from this extraordinary U.S. effort. The company has PR'd it has ample capacity and keen interest in expanding this part of its business. It already received a $1M order to this end. That was just the beginning. And next quarter Earnings will be terrific.
I'm in church all day and early evening Sunday but will come home around 9PM, have a beer and proceed to do my part alerting APT's prospects are superb given that passage of 2015 Omnibus Spending Bill is all but certain and imminent.
We held our long positions through the tough preceding week. APT did not break. Now, it needs a voice.
Let folks know now we believe APT is about to gain altitude!
In its most recent PR, APT highlighted they have ample manufacturing capacity. There is currently a big push to ramp up Ebola suit manufacturing. Why assume business will flat line at this nascent stage??
APT closed today at 2.81. That's 1.5 x's tangible book- a very reasonable valuation, even low.
BTW, you are quoting some poster, and the post is dated.
