    I am trying to figure out what a Chief Athenista is...or does? I could not find another job description for any other company. Perhaps that is why the stock has dropped suddenly? Are they making this stuff up?

    • That is their way of being cute. Athenista, I guess, is some play on the word athena. Until very recently their head of HR was referred to as "Chief of Staff." Cute. But not exactly professional. I think they are still feeling their way through being a public company - as near as I can tell, not a single executive has held a position with a public company. And it shows. The recent earnings call showed the lack of experience - CEO poking fun at the forward looking comments disclaimer as a good example.

      They will learn as time goes by. They may have great senses of humor, but they'll learn that the market does not care. And they only confuse the public with cute monickers like athenista.
