S&P (Purchase Date):$1,316.21 S&P (Sale Date):$904.60

Timing:  We bought near the six month low.
Reason:  The company has several attractive "green" products, which should be in high demand as new environmental standards are set. If the EPA fails to pass new mercury standards for power plant emissions, many states may do so.

Reason:  ADA-ES has steadily lost money. Given the poor economy and low energy costs, we don't believe that ADA-ES sill make a strong recovery soon. We believe that some other companies may benefit first if there is an investment in green energy.
