noslapps: You are correct the Cohen's have control and we do not. I prefer not to fight with the powers that be. I will continue to try to BUY LOW AND SELL HIGH.
I contend that a large factor in NPK's price rise was simply that the market went up and took NPK with it. Most investors are not very discriminating. Now, the market appeaers to be going down and I expect it to take NPK along whether I like it or not. Consequently, I sold and am awaiting another buy point but I don't expect it to occur soon. Investors in general have a lot to learn and it won't be easy and it won't come quick.
