There is a lot of merit in Profiteerer's post. Part of the problem is that the PR Dept. fumbled the ball after the HIV release. They should have released something on Maxwell's other divisions once they had Wall Street's attention. We miss Larry Selwitz's input.
Let's hope that Horgan is managing the company better than he is managing Wall Street. We should find out soon enough.
On the company's share buyback program: Their quarter ended July 31st so I don't believe that they can buy back stock until after they report their earnings.
I still believe MXWL is dramatically undervalued here providing they continue to develop their technology. I don't think they have to make every single number to show progress, but I do want to see orders and new product announcements. The company is selling at one times revenues, two times book value, has virtually no long term debt and has exciting technology to exploit. If they make their earnings the stock is selling at only 12 times calender 2000 earnings and growing at 30-35%. I can't find a cheaper growth stock.
As to institutional ownership, it's not retail that's been hammering the stock since August. We could use some retail sponsorship to help provide some price stability.
