I think they are just pushing their own earlier recommendations. Last quarter was poor for the most part, but if they downgrade what do they give for the price target? $3? My belief is they gave them a pass on the last quarter and are basically saying "we'll see what next quarter looks like".
As I mentioned previously - I think there is a bit of uneasiness about the current and next quarter. I don't think we're going to be seeing surprises to the up side.
I'll look to repurchase shares during the last 6 weeks of the year. Spring is when we'll see if things are really coming back together.
