maybe buying a company that produces medical grade oxygen would be a better idea or maybe the company that produces the facemasks or intubation tubes...find something that has the ability to grow in demand. yes masks will be worn more for a little while but that doesnt affect apt as you can see by the share price....what company falls in share price during their superbowl event??? informed investors connected the dots months ago...but if you like taking a huge risk for a small chance at a sentimant speculation go for it....its not the need thats a problem its the business model...when i did hold this company i made 20 or 30 phone calls to apt to figure out what they were all about...and as you can see they are about maintaining a small business for the next generation and werent willing to branch out because smartly they see the extra need as transient and the money output to make their quality product doesnt hold water long term when the market you would like them to enter doesnt care about quality it cares about being let in their corner store. And to gain access to commerce you need 5$ for 20 masks. i would love this stock to shoot up into the high teens because it would create a great short opportunity but that ship has sailed. if the ceo sold his shares why in the world would anyone buy them. He took the money because he knew he would never see that price again once people realized the details of the business model. if this makes you angry its because you dont want to face reality you want to believe you are smarter than the market and your idea a year after it mattered will be adopted by others who are not yet smart enough to put the pieces together but they will....its gonna be a long wait...and if this does pop for a third and final time quickly buy some covered puts and make a profit when the next group realizes this company has no ability or desire to cash in on a once in 100 year catastrophe....the price never lies....ill be back september 17th flu season should be starting in northern u.s by then and if its not up by then welllllllll lol
Seeking Alpha write-up is solid and price at the time was neutral at $12.00 per share. Were down by 33%. I see that as a 33% discount to fair mkt value. Nice cash on hand, management buying (insider) and low P/E. This plays into a nice medium term macro trend. Air bubbles always rise to the surface, even with temporary obstacles. Price target at $16.75 from the one analyst. So I ask you, where does this stock want to go?
how much money do you need to lose to do 10 minutes of digging to realize if every american was forced to wear a mask it wouldnt affect apts bottom line at all. they do not make masks for civilians and they are not interested in expanding this has been reality since day 1. just because you believe something or want it to be true doesnt make it reality. enjoy the obvious loss of capital.
Other than building supplies being positive and growing they essentially said sales will be down, cost of goods up, previous built up orders will end. Such a positive outlook.
SEC radar - this stock looks manipulated. Shorts communicating as a group to manipulate? Easy to track this. Lets see...
Management shows the behavior of amateurs. The numbers are the numbers. It is HOW you deliver the message and what you say about guidance. Management should NOW talk about the environment going into the 3rd and 4th quarter with COVID and demand for THEIR products. . The Street is a discounting mechanism and trades today based on 6-9 months in the future. Cmon folks! Do your job!
The next quarter should be the best ever, nventory increased by $ 5.2 million, or 31.3%, to $ 22.0 million as of June 30, 2021, from $ 16.7 million as of December 31, 2020. The increase was primarily due to an increase in inventory for the Disposable Protective Apparel segment of $ 3.8 million, or 32.9%, to $ 15.3 million and an increase in inventory for the Building Supply segment of $ 1.5 million, or 28.0%, to $ 6.7 million.

The Company currently has no outstanding debt and believes that the current cash balance will be sufficient to satisfy projected working capital needs and planned capital expenditures for the foreseeable future
May see mid quarter mask update on Monday
results Thursday, and they are not good. the last time, in March, it was 0.27 per share, compared to 0.53 in December.
Now they must be very little or negative.
Each investor who has his strategy. I think it can go down, and we will have to buy on Friday or Monday, since will be good.
are we gearing up from now on?
The only explanation I can find today is that there is a rumor going around about earnings today. I see nothing anywhere about earnings. Some one started a false rumor?
Curious, why would you hold?
That was known, I already said it. now is the time to buy. previous quarter fewer people used masks, and vaccinated. now it has been shown that vaccines are not enough, and masks are going to be mandatory, more than before.
I sold, and today I bought, last time to get on the train
such a low volume, easy manipulated by MM.
Go up!! The Company has made approximately $4.0 million in commitments for capital investments to increase our production capacity in our Building Supply segment, of which $2.5 million has been paid as of June 30, 2021.
Management needs lessons in PR. They say that sales are at pre-pandemic levels?! Cant they see what is happening and connect the dots? They recognize the variant activity globally now. They dont make any comments on the impact on their future sales??? Duh? The car approaching a mountain doesnt need to be at the top of the mountain to recognize what is or what will happen. Call balls and strikes. Be optimistic. Thank you.
Almost 50% drop in one year! Enough said. time to move on imo.
