I dont think afop is a risk at all at these levels its a gift. FNSR just reported stellar earnings and forward guidance. I know the optic sector gave us a head fake in 2011 but I think you are at the start of a huge build that will create big revenue for these firms deep into 2015. Best part is little afop was one of the first ones to the party. Chang runs a flawless production model. You mention the short interest and I personally think that is a huge forward indicator in this stock. With a float of only 18 million or so and the stock heavily controlled, I think this type of short interest is setting itself up for shorts to get roasted. They are trying to profit on end of year profit taking on a stock that has run 150% this year. We see the type of run afop is capable of that started in January of this year. I am seeing around 3.11 per share in cash on the books with a forward PE of 12 and this company is bringing in 21-23 million a quarter in rev at a 37.1% profit margin. Not many Sub 270 million market cap companies that can say that.
SEAC SeaChange: Results not impressive, story intact - Beating Wall Street (14.40 )
BWS notes SEAC surprised investors by reporting delays in having service providers commit to using an integrated Adrenalin and Nucelus solution Investors' and our expectations of having cable TV operators quickly going live with Nucleus seems to have been premature given the complexity of the network transition. They continue to believe cable TV operators desire to change to a TV everywhere type of service where content is on the cloud, and SEAC remains the best direct beneficiary. SEAC remains their top pick. They believe the short coming in the quarter can be made up as they foresee cable TV operators adopting Nucleus; Strong Buy.

UniPixel Addresses Market Speculation
THE WOODLANDS, Texas - November 25, 2013 - UniPixel, Inc. (NASDAQ: UNXL), a provider of Performance Engineered Films™ to the touch screen, flexible printed electronics, lighting and display markets, has been the subject of negative speculation concerning the validity of its innovations and partnerships. While, as a general policy, the company avoids commenting on market speculation, it reiterates that it has executed preferred price and capacity license agreements with its PC OEM and ecosystem partners. The company has not disclosed detailed terms of these agreements to the public because they contain specific confidentiality provisions and non-disclosure obligations. As previously announced on November 22, 2013, the company intends to fully cooperate with the investigation of the United States Securities Exchange Commission ("SEC"), and will produce these agreements and certain related documents to the SEC.
There are 6 million shares short on UNXL.
When you short that much of a 9 million share float, you have to ask
another question. If 36% of the shares are held by institutions, and 23% are held by insiders (that's 59% total) that leaves 41% in retail hands, or approximately 3.6 million shares. Even if the brokerage firms that sold the retail their shares loaned out all of it to the shorts, that leaves 2.39 million shares unaccounted for. Who allows 2.39 million shares to be shorted naked ? Is that even legal ? Why are there no regulators seeing this?
As painful as it's been, some smelled out this sell off a week ago. The on balance volume, institutional volume, is way low meaning they have left the building for now and have brought many timid retail along
with them. Now we're in perhaps the beginning of a general market pullback so that won't help either.
Soon though, we'll be oversold and this stock will be a bargain. Fundamentals are fine and the stock is
worth much more than it is here. Patience required for this one, road is still a little bumpy ahead, but it
will be fine going forward when the value is re- recognized.

You have got to be one of the biggest A-holes I've ever confronted on these boards. You think you
know it all but many of us know better. The firm I deal with is NOT selling me borrowed shares as
for weeks they have a restricted (no short) status on AFOP So shut your piehole and come down
from your self constructed tower of knowledge. You are rude, your advice is sophomoric, and your
immaturity is exhausting. You are like a fly that needs to be swatted. Hopefully the market will take
care of that for the rest of us.
I think those who decided to pick this company to short it chose it because of the small float.
However, what puzzles me is why they would choose a company that is doing so well and has
a good future. At least in the foreseeable near term. There are so many other companies out
there that are over bought, and that don't have a lot going on. In other words, a more
likely downside ahead. It looks like only 300m to 400m of the 2.1 mill short on AFOP have covered.
Why not all when it was at 16.80-17, and move on to greener pastures ? Puzzling indeed !
I look at the long term, and don't really care about you immature trading pumpers and bashers.
Unless you have something constructive or informative to add to the boards, I suggest you get
a real life.
Is that it ? Ten doomsday posts in a row. Wow. Look who put on his short position today.
Now, how do you really feel about AFOP ?
