    SCHR came to my attention through a stock screening program. Learning more about this firm through message board comments, company news releases, and further details from Market Guide, etc., reinforces a lesson learned years ago; simply being a publicly traded stock does not mean you can't have mediocre people running your company. The dot com fiasco once again proved this.
    Based upon this further sluething I decided not to buy. I don't see a shareholder orientation here.

    • I owned this one a few years ago for a short time. The IR department was a basket case -- responses were nil, always a bad sign -- and the stock performance was about the same.

      I got out quickly without losing too much.

      Hard to imagine a firm in this business could turn in such a mediocre performance consistently. But the story of how the firm came to be probably offers insight on that, too.

      And the other sad but true reality: Most folks think they know how to run a business, but few actually do.
