    Easiest way to drive up stock price

    I think they can do everything you described and also buy back some shares. If the things you mentioned work out, a lower share count will magnify results. One analyst asked about possible acquisitions in the conference call. Why not acquire themselves at this bargain price? They got something like $20 per share in the ipo, and now they can by them back at $6.

    • Bribe, I see your point but I'm just not a big fan of buybacks (S&P recently did a study that companies that did stock buybacks underperformed the overall market and that they'd have been better off just putting the money in treasuries).

      I'd rather let them have complete flexibility to get back to hyper growth by using their $100m in the bank .
