    Upside potential???

    If this stock is so bad, why do two analysts rate it a strong buy?

    • For it's size, this is actually a pretty impressive co. Consistent pos CFs (while maintaining margins) over last few yrs when many cos its size struggeled or went under. I too would like to see sales execute better (and with larger contracts at that). And yes, am also concerned about the revolving door on thr stock option then repurchase plan. But I've written before that I'm impressed with their technology (I'm a software developer) and they've got an excellent cfo controlling expenses (balance sheet is very healthy). Don't be concerned about low volume. Just means that when interest does re-emerge, stocks like this can ignite (actually been buying more every time it goes below 5.50). Finally, although recent qtr did disappoint, I liked the conf call - sounded like lots in the pipe line (over a # of dpts too). And not to mention takeover possibilities - I'm sticking with them for now - good luck guys...

    • Wow i dont know. Look at the managements horrible performance with regard to stockholder value over the years, which should make a reasoanble person question what these so could anaylst are talking about. Answer: they are full of crap

    • Maybe they are on smoking something funny and are not sharing it with the rest of the market...:)-

      Speaking of which, this stock literally has single digit volume for the first 2-3 hours of every market day, and at most by the end of the day the volume is in the 20K. Yesterday and today the volume has jumped up BIG time, and the price has gone DOWN also big time in terms of percentage (5%+).

      I hope these 2 analysts be generous and start passing around what they are smoking to others..:)
