Oh, I totally agree that wind power has a great future and there are probably a lot of profits to be made in the field.

My point is that any effort to make a profit in the field should be by investing in a company that actually is doing something, regardless of whether its for the short or long term.

And, in the effort to evaluate that, the key source of information is the company's filings with the SEC. Error there can lead to being delisted.

In their filing (found here: http://biz.yahoo.com/e/070615/awne.ob10qsb.html ) they basically say that they are selling zero and are going to have to sell more stock <to somebody> to keep "going". In this case, "going" is not generating sales, although they have hopes to do so.

Now, given the fact that there are wind power construction companies that actually have sales and profits, why would anyone expect that AWNE is a superior investment....or even an investment at all?

Now, I've seen "newsletters" like this one before with the big hype. I wish you well if you decide to put your money here......I don't share the optimism.

Rob
