I believe there are some doubts creeping in about just what will be reported on their 4th quarter numbers. Based on their previous 9 months one could almost state that they have not executed very well in fiscal 14. If I hear one more report about how their move to the new plant(completed last September) reflected negatively in this quarters report I think I will be sick.
The stock is not acting like there is any big payday coming on RU9. Maybe that will change as they come closer to announcing the numbers.
Hey valuuedelta516, how much of this stock were you able to buy at $4 in the last five months? That's the price you wanted to buy at wasn't it?
Actually with the new "rich" in both PA and Ohio from the oil and gas fracking boom golf memberships at the AWX's facilities have been trending higher for the past couple of years.
Nothing was exercised. 60,000 options were granted at $5.68 on 7/10. 20,000 options are exercisable on 7/10/15, another 20,000 are exercisable on 7/10/16 and the last 20,000 is exercisable on 7/10/17 with all options expiring on 7/10/24.
How much golf do you think was taking place from last October until March of this year at the AWX'x golf courses? How much of AWX's expenses are related to their newest venture on the fracking disposal wells that was initiated the last quarter of last year? It's hard for me to believe that AWX's business is so "weak" when they are situated right in the middle of the Marcellas and Utica fracking belt. Now if you want to argue that some of AWX's problems are related to their lack of execution on getting those disposal well up and running; I might agree with you on that point.
both seem to have great conviction on this stock short term IMO. Hard to believe that we have so many sellers at this time with the current balance sheet of AWX being so solid. Wake me up when our current CEO decides to resign or sell the company. Then you'll see some real action taking place in the stock trading volume.
Of course it relates to ASTC. If the smells of a dog can be duplicated into the 1st Detect product offerings than ASTC has a "major game changer" on the medical front in their portfolio.
Loss for the year $41.7 million or 94 cents per share. Comparing that number to the numbers released on their last 10Q of a loss of $24.5 million or 56 cents for 9 months explains IMO the recent negative action in the stock over the past week. Not sure how the market will react prior to the CC tomorrow. But my best guess is that it won't be a very positive response.
I tend to agree with you that this may be a game changer in the land of fat. However one must temper that conclusion with the fact that BAYER sold the international rights back to KYTH. Why would a company sell back those rights for a modest amount if one thought they had a "game changer" to sell into the fat market?
Yep, a decent report IMO. Nothing to write home about however. It would appear they are expanding their product lines in several areas and hopefully that will translate into additional business this coming year. A cheap stock at this price level. Got to believe they could get another $3 to $4 dollars at least on a sale of the company.
Not sure what you call earnings. Now if you said I think their losses will be down from past reports then I might agree with your statement.
I agree the tax liability should not be that great. Nevertheless there will be some "number" that must be subtracted from the Lockheed purchase price.
A "significant portion of those gains" clearly doesn't mean all of the gains. Thus it sounds like there will be some tax liability. How much, I guess we will have to wait and see.
That's not what management stated. They said they can't be sure until the transaction closes as to whether they will have to pay some tax on this sale.
Why would ASTC having to pay taxes make the money from the asset sale more valuable? The simple answer is that ASTC will have LESS money available after they pay taxes on this transaction. Thus there will be LESS money to help advance 1st Detect business plan not MORE money.
you folks might be interested in reading some articles concerning this project. Would it not be great if enough gas were found near the existing LNG Cook Inlet plant to be able to get that restarted in short order? The possibility of getting Cook Inlet LNG to market in a much shorter time frame would be a BIG BOOST to MILL's assets at Cook.
