Rhino Ray, I am not a gambling man, but I'd bet on APAT getting bought by one of the bigger ones... JDSU (I hope)... LU or CIEN ...

I wouldn't be surprised to see an announcement to that fact come out in the near future... if APAT is in such negotiations, then they would want their stock to be at or near a high, so I would expect that such announcment may come out after another announcement is made by APAT on where they stand with their 50GHz DWDM... meaning sales and marketing info. which would prop the price higher... oh well, will just have to wait...

long APAT...

best regards
amein

Reuters had an afternoon article on APAT. The company president seemed surprised by the run-up. Naivete at work?

Would this company be a good takeover target. Considering its low market cap and new product, I would think it is going to happen soon if the 50GHZ is that good.

The short position for APAT as of 1/00 is less than 30,000 shares (see below)

Wonder if the recent price drop is caused by added shorts this week. Is there any way to get more uptodate info?

Also, since AVANEX identified their processor' customer does anyone know why APAT hasn't identified theirs??? Any guesses.

Any news from the Siemen's front??

I am not currently holding FIBR - maybe Andy has some thoughts here. I have sold alot of puts on GLW, bought the common of GLW, APAT, AMCC, sold alot of puts on JDSU and started selling puts on LU. If LU drops below 50 I will start to buy the stock and if it goes below 45 I will load up the boat.

Bhag,

Since you asked for a guess, mine is that the customer may have stipulated as part of their sales agreement that APAT not divulge their identity. The computer company I work for has been in a similar position. I'm not sure why the customer company wants such restrictions, but I know they occasionally do.

But... that's only a guess.
