    Flight 370 was not the first plane to be lost in which millions of dollars and thousands of hours have been spent on locating where it went down, but it may be the last aircraft missing in the future. Something WILL BE Done this time around so it can't happen again. The question is will FLYHT be part of the solution ? Production of all aircraft will have new systems designed and installed at the time the aircraft is in production. Unless FLYHT has some patents they will use, they may be out of the picture and only be a factor in older aircraft only.
    I guess we will have to wait and see what happens but I feel sure that this time SOME ACTION will be taken. I'am sure the added cost of having tracting in real time would be gradly paid for by future travelers. God Bless the people that have been loss and lets hope this never happens again !

    If the COST of that growth results in a large NET LOSS ! The bottom line is EARNINGS growth and a NET PROFIT. Many companies have tried to buy their way into revenue growth at the cost of the shareholders and PROFITS. It just doesn't work. RVLT had a 600% increase in revenues when measured Q to Q because of mergers but the net loss was way out of line the the stock went nowhere. Same thing here. You can spin SOME numbers and think things are just great but the numbers that really count are not there.

    If you think the lawsuits are over because the stock is up .32 cents after losing more the 12 dollars or 37 times todays gain you are very wrong.

    Many investors appear to be quite bearish on LeapFrog Enterprises, Inc. (LF - Snapshot Report), especially if you look at the percentage of the float that is sold short for this stock. Currently, 24.4% of the float is sold short, suggesting an extreme level of bearishness for LF.

    However, it is worth noting that earnings estimates have actually been moving higher for the company, despite the pessimism. Thanks to these rising estimates, we have a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy) on LF, so we clearly don’t believe in the negativity surrounding this firm, and are instead looking for shares of LF to move higher in the weeks ahead.

    I don't think the positive events have anything to do with the sell off !
    First their have been alot of margin calls to settle and selling a non-margin stock @ dollar for dollar is the best way to settle those calls. Second, and the most important this company is at a point where the assets are not equal to the liabilities. There not there at this point but are heading that way and that "could mean BK". The Book Value is NEGATIVE along with the Operating Cash Flow, Levered Cash Flow, Return on Assets, and Return on Equity, All Negative.
    Bottom line, the company is not on sound footing and have never made a profit. You could lose everything or be on one heck of a ride on the upside ! Either way it is a big risk. Good Luck! I'am in but I will not bet the "Farm" on it.

    Not buying more @ 1054hrs when it was up only 0.05 or not buying into the close @ 8.40
    It's only going to go up as more contracts come in for a service people have to have. I started buying @ 5 and some @ 6 but I flat out doubled today after the many chances to buy more today. It's a no-brainer to see where this is going and there is min. risk to the downside side. Good Luck LONGS !

    The trigger point for this stock will be new regulations from the NTSB that require "real Time" tracking of all commercial aircraft both for new aircraft and existing U.S. aircraft. Once that happens this stock will soar If they can handle the huge increase in orders and if their patents are rock solid. There is an existing older fleet of aircraft out there that could keep amslf in business for along time and if their patents are used in new aircraft production they will really make out. Those 55 cent shares could turn out to be 55 dollar shares with the right new rules and laws.

    Bottom Line.....

    The CEO also said he was concentrating on countries outside the Us and C a nada at the moment. Could he be waiting on a ruling by the NTSB that we don't know about?

    if there ever was a government that's LOVES Regulations and telling everybody how they will run there lives and hates businesses, it's are weak leader and his thugs ! That's not to say new regs are not needed in this case and in fact are way overdue. News regs will come down and this stock will soar on heavy volume. You will never get close to this PPS again and will be forced to buy on the way up. The company may be forced into a merger in order to meet the increase capital demands.
    That being said I still would not invest in AMSLF more money than I could lose. The balance sheet and cash flow are weak but seem to be getting better. Maybe a profit next quarter. It all depends on the news !

    Using the Yahoo basic chart you can overlay the U.S. stock over the Canada stock and see they tract each other with the same pattern. All we can do is wait at this point.

    You and the competitors don't need to know the how, when , and where of the contracts. All you need to know is the bottom line which will result in growth in earnings and revenue.
    When I worked for Xerox and we used voice pagers before cell phones, our customer service calls, unit model, and problem were all in "code". You don't want TOO MUCH information out that can help people that want your lunch !

    90 to 120 people die each day from auto accidents and 2200 die each day from cardiovascular disease. Let's ban cars and forks. That will fix everything.

    And what most people don't know 98% of those people have eaten TOMATOES sometime in their life. 99% of the people in prison have eaten TOMATOES. Those people that were born before 1885 that have eaten TOMATOES are ALL DEAD, and those few people born before 1914 are weak and disabled.

    Looks like some changes are about to be made around May 5 that only the insiders know! Can that be the reason for the PPS and volume increase the last 2 days ?
    Smith & Wesson Holding Corp. (SWHC) agreed to acquire Tri Town Precision Plastics Inc. for $23 million in cash as the gun maker focuses on its M&P firearm business by snapping up a major component-supplier.
    The gun maker's newly formed, wholly-owned subsidiary, Deep River Plastics LLC, will purchase substantially all of the net assets of the polymer supplier, Smith & Wesson said Monday.
    The deal, expected to close around May 5, is expected to benefit Smith & Wesson's financial results in fiscal 2015 with a positive impact on gross margin of 70 to 90 basis points and an increase in per-share earnings of four cents to five cents, said Chief Financial Officer Jeffrey Buchanan.

    wanted follow-up on contracts, since the CEO said it was forthcoming...is that too much to ask.

    Yes it is. It's of no concern to release that information to the world where it can used to against the company and hurt their business plans. Just be happy with the results of their efforts. If you ever worked for a big company you see this all the time.

    No way we should be down 10% on that eranings report...no way.

    It should be more than 10% down on a poor report like that. Even ZACKS downgraded from #1 to #2 after that E.R. ! Earnings should be 0.20 to 0.30 on a 13 dollar stock not 4 cents ! You can't just meet expectations you need a homerun to increase pps. Revenue and guidance. are flat.
    Bottom line is they need to get their act together or this stock will continue to fall or at best stay flat.

    so your argument makes no sense. Theyre growing revs faster than most internet sector companies

    So that explains why there PPS is down from $18.63 less than 3 months ago to $12.21 or more than a 33% cut because they are doing so good ! Those are THE FACTS not rumors ! Face it, they are doing something wrong and have been downgraded by Zacks and others.
    Good Luck, they may turn things around but they are not performing up to expectations now. That was not a good earnings report or the stock wouldn't have drop 9-10% and that also is a recorded FACT. I don't deal in emotions just the FACTS. I use to hold this stock and I follow it on "watch" because it might be a good stock to get back in to but not right now. As I said, Good Luck, it may work out for you in the longer run.

  • I'am sure they have their reason for the upgrade. Zacks isn't always right but they are" independent", paid for by small investors. They have no agenda for any stock and do not promote, sell or hold any stock.

    I was thinking what does Zacks know that we don't, and it may be this.................
    We have got something here that we believe is very special, and a new character that we don't play in at the moment. I have been in meetings where we have shown this to retail partners and I have to say their response has been exceptionally positive.

    Bottom line is what the PPS is at the closing not at the open. Premarket means very little and the first hour after the open is full of emotional investors. The stock is already down from $16 and that's a cut of more than half on a company that will continue to grow and make money. The bar is already very low and HIMX is not going to continue to drop. Let all the people that want to get out, get out, and watch for the volume to slow which will indicate it's time to buy and the knife has stopped falling. Good Luck Longs !

  • For a stock that has a PE of 11 and a PEG of 0.36 which is EXCELLENT I think the selling is way overdone.
    Too many good things point to a great future we can look forward too and I think a lot of people are beginning to notice that now. Good Luck Longs !

  • Definition of 'Price/Earnings To Growth - PEG Ratio'

    A stock's price-to-earnings ratio divided by the growth rate of its earnings for a specified time period. The price/earnings to growth (PEG) ratio is used to determine a stock's value while taking the company's earnings growth into account, and is considered to provide a more complete picture than the P/E ratio. While a high P/E ratio may make a stock look like a good buy, factoring in the company's growth rate to get the stock's PEG ratio can tell a different story. The lower the PEG ratio, the more the stock may be undervalued given its earnings performance.

    With the PPS being cut more than a half in less than 1 month along with it having the great future for its products and less debt than cash on hand HIMX is a great value as a buyout company that's on the cheap !

    Just when things look the worst we could see a big positive surprise soon and it will be too late to get in if your not already long. Good Luck!

    Any company with a PEG less than 1 but over zero is a great value. Check your other holdings out. I stopped using PE a long time ago. A low PE without growth means very little but a high PE with very high growth may be OK.
