Hi Ray, I agree with you about the Company and the superiority of the product. Many Companies that build a better "widget" do not succeed because of lack of a good sales and marketing plan, and lack of sufficient capital to market the product. IMO, the 50 Ghz DWDM is so big and important that it will not be stuck on a shelf somewhere; but, assuming there is not immediate major Co. competition, one of the two options you suggested - create a sales/marketing force, or sell-out to a major - seems highly likely.

Congrats. on your buys Friday and today (I hope early!). Resistence @ 64 works real well for me..... for now! :)

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
