Jason,

"I held onto AMS stock for years doing a DRIP. Bad move on my part. It would just putter up to 31-35 and then market forces would drop it down again".

AMSY has outperformed the S&P500 for most of the last decade save the last year of course. The market corrects the price when needed but this is healthy. Those stocks that soar without bound often tend to crash and burn all too soon.

This stock is definitely undervalued right now. The company is solid and historical performance indicates that the stock will rebound after a correction. Your own experience in working at AMS might confirm this.

Market corrections open up opportunities to acquire undervalued stocks that are almost CERTAIN to rebound and AMSY is a prime example. Five weeks ago was the perfect time to buy. The "Thrift" project is not out of the woods yet so there might be another brief dip in the future. I don't want that to happen but if it does, I know where my money will be going.

regards,

-G
