    Some thoughts to waste away the next

    5 trading days until earnings.....

    1. When viewed independently of the market for small cap stocks, HTCH is trading as if a nasty surprise awaits.

    2. When viewed in the context of the market for small cap stocks, HTCH is trading like most of them, down from recent highs on anemic volume.

    3. If they hit the low end of their 105-110million ship volume guidance, revenue will be 62mil which is above the year ago quarter.

    4. If they hit the high end of their guidance, rev will be 65mil which is significantly above year ago.

    5. The number of shorted shares is significant at 1.5mil as of late last month. This could provide fuel for an explosive move up if Hutch surprises to the upside.

    6. Recent tech results from those participating in the HDD markets are generally encouraging, numbers generally up so difficult to imagine any sort of significant miss.

    7. Volume is so low that any one person can move the stock +/-10% on a daily basis without trying. This too will come to pass.

    Enough typing. Cheers all.
