Keep Selling Puts on ASYS

|Includes:Amtech Systems, Inc. (ASYS)

A while back I wrote a quick piece on ASYS, and the returns from selling cash-secured puts on the solar semiconductor maker. The stock has declined (though not enough to make that trade lose money, as yet), and the opportunities are better.The November 15 is bid at $1 -- 7.1% return (over 20% annualized), with break-even at $14. That's a $7 enterprise value for a company that's earned $2.28 over the past twelve months and set new revenue records the last five quarters. I understand there are worries in the semiconductor sector broadly, and some pricing issues within the solar portion of the sector, but a 3:1 EV-E as your downside? Worth a look.
