FK: Interesting microcap

Amtech Systems (ASYS) is a microcap Semiconductor equipment manufacturer that announced Q4 results on 12/13/23, with revenue coming up short.
10 yr chart shows ASYS rebounding after prior hits

Will this time be different? Things look bad this round with a reduction-in-force. But small changes and a slight sector improvement could help the company bounce back.

No position at this time, but watching.


Decided to nibble on ASYS - that way it stays on my radar.

About a year ago, I had nibbled on larger entity in the same space - Entegris (ENTG). That worked out nicely. If there are synergies, ENTG could likely snap up ASYS with not too much effort.
