I mentioned this in the comment thread of a previous post, but for those who missed it,
The list of questions ended up being fairly long. Gene [Kostecki, AYSI's CEO] wrote back to say that he and Alan [Winduss, the company's CFO] planned to try to answer all the questions by midweek next week. In light of that time frame, I am going to revise my previous comment about not placing any trades until I post their response. I am going to place additional limit buy orders today but I won't modify them if they don't fill until after I have posted AYSI's responses to the questions. The salient point remains that I won't be buying or selling AYSI based on answers received from the company before posting them here.
I put in a GTC limit order in the low 2's this morning, but obviously didn't get it filled today, given today's price action. Speaking of which: commenter J.K. (who, as far as I know, is the only reader to have invested in AYSI after reading about it here), sold his shares at around $2.70 recently, because he felt that the chart suggested the stock would pull back below $2 in the near future. I've held (and added a tiny bit more) because I don't think the stock will drop below $2 before earnings are released absent materially negative news, and I don't want to risk having the stock run away from me if additional positive news is released (e.g., a big supply deal with another multinational mining company).
Essentially, J.K. feels the stock's near-term trajectory will be driven by technical factors and I think it will continue to be driven by fundamentals. It will be interesting to see which one of us turns out to be correct over the next couple of months.
