ASASSN-14cv: stage A superhumps, period bouncer?

   Kasai-san has reported further observations.
The superhumps have not yet fully grown.
The combined data for the last two nights have yielded
a period of 0.06128(13) d, which mist likely reflects
stage A superhumps.  This fractional superhump excess
corresponds to q=0.06.  This estimate should be confirmed
by further observations of stage A superhumps.
The relatively small q combined with a long superhump
(or orbital) period would suggest a period bouncer.
Further detailed observations are encouraged.
