$AAOI rocket queen great point, more to come on that. According to their risk factors there is a likely scenario that they announce that the $150m deal falls apart in 2023 of course subsequent to the Q422 bonus recording they disclosed on last earnings call debacle (amazing!). At that point they would likely file bankruptcy and then the shorts get another $2 but 99 percent return. That is likely why someone holds a short position on a stock below FMV. Bankruptcy at $240m in annual sales when market comps are at 3x annual sales should draw suspicion by regulators and bankruptcy courts as to where those sales end up. The key is get to the head of SEC (and concurrent commissioner of course) ahead of that potential event so all activity is monitored to assure decisions are made for best interest of shareholders. Basically what board members should have been doing. Also rocket queen did you track down who holds the 3.5m short shares ? I bet it is not readily transparent. Stay tuned.

$AAOI we do need to more closely investigate the short sale activity with AAOI. File a report with the SEC and list all of the red flags.

User Image Buylowsellhigh1z Posted - 11/27/22

$AAOI -stock is down almost 50 percent since its run up from its announcement of a future $150m. -the day of the announcement the stock traded 70m shares on usual volume of 200k of which almost half was short volume (clearly someone trying to prevent a run up to fair market value which is 10x stock price) -read the press release in September and compare to the risk factors in their most recent 10q describing the same future deal. The language has potentially spooked ordinary institutional investors. How does that happen and how does everything seem to work in the favor of the 3.5m short position. -can anyone reconcile who holds the 3.5m short position or is it just me that struggles to find information on it, yet anyone can reconcile who holds the long positions

User Image Buylowsellhigh1z Posted - 11/24/22

$AAOI -in case anyone didn’t pick up on the section (bolded in fact) of the latest 10q, I have attached the language below. -does that language and other language in that section suggest managerial confidence in this $150m deal closing? Also they elected to not classify this transaction as “held for sale” on the balance sheet, also speaks to their confidence in closing. However, they are recording a bonus of $3m in Q422. You can’t make this up. This board of directors should be investigated these actions are massive red flags. The parties may be unable to satisfy the conditions to the closing of our divestiture and the transaction may not be consummated, and the failure of the divestiture to be completed may adversely affect our business and our common stock price.

User Image Buylowsellhigh1z Posted - 11/23/22

$AAOI -somebody does not want this to run up. Pretty obvious at this point. -who holds the 3.5m short shares and what is the risk reward trade off on a stock trading at .2x annual revenue when market comps are 3x revenue. Clearly the short position has info the rest of us don’t and its so blatent it should be a red flag for a regulatory investigation. -CEO is not qualified just listen to the earnings call. Any earnings call! A replacement to the CEO puts this at market level valuation or $25 per share , more than 10x current price. Why wouldn’t the board replace him and allow him to keep his shares, he would make $25m overnight. -Keeping an unqualified CEO only benefits the mysterious 3.5m shares that are short and is costing the CEO $25m to hold a job making $400k. not to mention the board is leaving around $10m of their own money to keep the CEO in place. -slight red flags would you say ? more to come on this !

$AAOI bought some 2 dollar calls out a couple weeks at pretty much 0 implied volitility. Got them for 30 when it was at 230 and 3 weeks out. Weird unless I missed a divy or something

User Image lsoto Posted - 11/21/22

$AAOI The irrationality of the market is such that some stocks like this one sells for one FIFTH of its asset value, and some others sell for ten times their annual sales! The good news is that, on the long run, distortions tend to level out, although they make take years to happen, as all shorts on $TSLA pretty well now, included me! That is why I now prefer to invest in value stocks, understood as those who have more assets than market cap value!

$AAOI -probably another rough week for AAOI -this company has been run into the ground by the CEO over the last 4 years after a major pump on a crappy company and product. A CEO who holds just less than a million shares makes decisions not in alignment with increasing shareholder value (costs too high slow but steady cash burn, etc) -board is completely absent -3.5m shares mysteriously held out of a float of 28m where revenue multiple is .2 times annual revenue versus industry level of 3x. -red flags all over the field on this one and retail shareholders are being played and most likely involved in a scam that lost 2b of value. This board will get caught on this one especially with heightened scrutiny due to FTX debacle.

$AAOI good lesson in life, never invest money with a company run by Chinese asshole greedy management ! run as fast as you can, they enrich themselves on investors money yet they never made a dime for investors , pretty much FRAUD , lets hope someone buys this for the assets and the workforce, removes the management.

User Image Buylowsellhigh1z Posted - 11/17/22

$AAOI -Ended Q322 at $26m in cash -Disclosed a subsequent event of $16m in a debt payment in Oct. -Booking and most likely paying a bonus for $3m Q422 based on $150m deal expected to close in 2023 with no specificity on timing with a company with no visible website. -Yeah the above aren’t red flags at all. The employees that show up everyday and get nominal shares along with shareholders who rely on normal publicly traded company guidance are getting played by this management team specifically the CEO. -Nice job overseeing this board members. -Replace Lin and this stock goes to $25 what are we doing here. Replace Lin with Muray.

User Image Buylowsellhigh1z Posted - 11/16/22

$AAOI fake name “Fred” just dumped 22 percent of his holdings at just over $2. This shows you exactly what an insider thinks about them closing the $150m deal. This speaks volumes meanwhile the board approves a $3m bonus ahead of closing. The bonus is the only way management can cash in , at least they have a stacked board that is totally asleep. What a joke, this dude spent a decade here and barely pulls out $100k and just the person investors want in front of hyperscale customers hence why the constant revenue decline. Can you imagine the customers sales meetings. ha ha. This is comical to watch!
