Any opinions or things I should look for?

What attracted you to AMSC?
For me it was/is the promising applications of superconducting technology. Another reason, is AMSC is geared up to be the largest manufacturer of HTS wire in the world and anyone may purchase it for their own applications. Not to mention that the manufacturing process is proprietary. Although there may be more than one way to skin a cat, they are getting a big jump on anyone else.
Only time will tell if there will be a large demand for their wire.
So far I've been willing to wait with what I have and just increased my position at these prices. That's it in a nutshell for me. I'm sure others more knowledgable on this board will spew numbers at you and are more able to express the technical side of HTS wires and their other products that are beginning to have an impact in electricty transmission, marine motors,etc...

As to what to look for....
well, GE has an intrest in AMSC's DSMES(is that acronym right?) product used to regulate high voltage. I just have this gut feeling that one day GE may express a larger intrest in the whole company.
