What: Shares of power-transmission technologist American Superconductor
So what: The fall stems from American Superconductor buying a smaller rival known as The Switch Engineering. Though the deal is expected to add to the bottom line immediately, investors are clearly not jazzed about this deal.
Now what: Of course, the company lowered its 2011 guidance to account for acquisition costs. I still don't see how it could be a bad move to get into Switch's core market of wind-powered generators, with financial windfalls starting almost right away. We know that Mr. Market is myopic, and you may want to take a closer look at this well-managed company while the old dude is finding his glasses.
