    I wonder if today's correction of the sa and bloomberg stories gets us back most of yesterday's loss.

    Well, the 10-Q is already on the SEC site if you want to see it ahead of the PR.

    Well, I sold all my shares on this run up anywhere from $20 all the way to almost $26. My guess is that most of that run was due to people betting on Cruiser to actually do something. We will see what they actually do.

    Well, the technical pattern on the chart is starting to look a bit better. Still 3 or 4 weeks from the next earnings report, so no real driver for a big move before that.

    OK, this is down about 20% from 52 week high. I think it should work its way back up as the year goes on. I added another 10% to my position recently. Of course, I could be completely wrong, but I think we could see decent earnings reports in the next few quarters.

    Not sure why the recent drop, but I added another 10% to my share count this morning at $15.96. No idea whether that was smart or not.

    Guess I am the only one following $AVD now, but that seemed like a decent earnings report and the guidance was pretty good all things considered.

    Well, the numbers came in about where they had forecast a couple weeks ago, so no surprise there. Overall, I thought the CC was pretty positive. It was interesting to note that the operator said they had 17 people calling in on phone lines and 45 people on the webcast. I was surprised to hear that large of a number. This is one of my largest positions and I feel OK holding it for a while. If you missed the CC, it's worth listening when you have time.

    Earnings Tuesday, May 8 after the close. Will be interesting to see what the numbers are.

    Q4 Earnings should be out in a week or two. Yahoo says $0.18 and revs of $110M. That would be earnings growth for the year of 35% and revenue growth of 12%. Yahoo and I both think earnings next year could be up another 50% and revenues up 20% to 25%. If those numbers are close to accurate, it seems like AVD is undervalued. Just my thoughts going into the earnings report.

    Is AVD share price being impacted by late season snows that might slow planting this spring? We lost over half of the gains from the last earnings report.

    Bad weather is causing concern for product sales.

    I may be wrong, but have been adding shares over the last week or so. Earnings out on Nov. 2 I think.

    Does anybody know where to get the BLUE proxy card for nominating new Board of directors? It is not in the regular online voting form.

    It wasn't much of a dividend, but they eliminated it anyhow.Strange times we live in when all the companies with dependable divvies cut them while the stock market is back at all time highs.

    This could be a good year for $AVD. Will SIMPAS go commercial this year. An interesting article here if interested starting on page 48:
