    It is getting ridiculous

    Paying 6+ dollar a share for a quarterly earning of 84c per share. What's so bad about that? People are dumping it like a piece of garbage.

    • A lot of volume trading hands close to $6 today...good sign.

    • My "smugness" was only in response to the unsolicited barrage launched at me when I commented that the stock was undervalued. Some jackass claimed that I probably had my entire $1,000 life savings in the stock from its IPO and was praying for a bail-out.

      Anyway - enough of this. Bottom line the stock is cheap. You are correct - my profits are only on paper. As for exit strategy, I actually hold a very small postion which could be exited in the open market with minimal disruption (I have no plans to do so).

      An acquisition is possible, though I am not banking on it. I think a gradual multiple expansion from these extreemly low levels is the most likely outcome.

    • I enjoy reading your posts too Advil. They are so full of grammar and spelling errors. Thank you for the comic relief. There are many items at SmarterKids.com that you might find useful.

    • Where you been educationguru? It's been over 18 months since we heard from you. Welcome back.

      I am happy you did well. Sounds like you know what you are doing. And no I didn't get burned, did pretty well actually. Sold a large block a while back at a nice profit. Just decided to go towards bluechips, investing as opposed to speculating. I don't want to have to watch my accounts daily. But I can't resist this board. Some of the observations from the bulls are just too humorous.

      See you in Monteray.

    • Sounds like you got burnt Advil! Sorry but that is not the case for me. I've cleared 15K in profit this year...lest we all forget this stock was trading at 1.75 a year ago....hmmmm....more than tripled in value. Hope they can keep this excellent progress up!

      And yes, I sold to protect my earnings like a good investor should, but have already bought some back on this good earnings news.

    • Even though I don't agree with your last comment, your response is well thought out and articulate. Too bad I can't say the same about chef_daddy. He is an ignorant individual, makes me want to stay around to get under his skin.

    • Maybe there are some high dollar investors in this company who are down on it...but anybody that has bought in during the last couple of years has made a killing in a bad market, and there's a lot to be said for that. It's not sexy, but you can't beat a company that's growing revenues, growing earnings, and trades at only a slight premium to book. I don't know why you're bashing...maybe it's because you sold before the stock took off.
      A lot of education companies have stagnant revenues...these guys are growing at 10%+ where spending is tight...I think management knows where they're going as far as an exit strategy.

    • It is not only a piece of garbage, it is the entire dump! The price has been driven up by small share purchases. Any sale of a few hundred shares can swing this price wildly.

      Only a fool would by this POS.
