RE: AEM Holdings
Hi Kaimin,

The answer is simple, they struck gold in their new product. Secondly the semi conductor industry they are in grew a lot over the past 2 years due to the demand of chips as well as the cryptocurrency boom that created demand for mining rigs, which needed "heavy duty" graphics card.

They had 3.6 million in PP&E in 2017. That's a return on capital of hundreds of percent! And even in percentage terms - PP&E increased by 63%, revenue and profits by hundreds of percent!

AEM's main customer is Intel, whose sales are mainly from PC and Data Center chips. AEM co-developed a new test handler with Intel that is superior than existing market products, resulting in AEM being the sole supplier for Intel's test handlers. This explains AEM revenue growth from its trough.

As for being asset-light, this is a characteristic of semicon capital equipment OEMs. They rely more on manpower than that of PP&E. If you noticed, AEM's staff costs doubled from 2016 to 2017 (although 25% of staff costs is due to bonus). My guess is, AEM outsource more parts and rely more on their proprietary technology to generate sales.

Exited last Friday @ 1.48. Today @ 1.76.

There are daily acquisitions from Morgan Stanley, MUFG, UBS etc. Is there a concerted attempt by a third party using these as proxies?
