    bought more today

    In my opinion today was a buying opportunity. My understanding is the selling by insiders was simply due to options coming off restriction and profit taking.

    All indications are that the story is still very much intact.

    • I kind of get what you are saying, but my point is that these guys make roughly 250K a year accdg to yahoo. Ok - so they sold a pittance of their options for what amounts to about 20K after taxes and also your point perhaps another 8k in tax credits.

      I get all that but at some point the VP's need to understand that the tone at the top is important.

      This reminds me of last year when I hoped and hoped a share buy back would happen. Why sit on 35M cash at ~1% interest when you could buy back 25, 50, 75% of the shares for cash in the bank. If you have no debts what possibly could drive EPS better than that? This stock would be 6, 7, 10 by now?

    • First time homeowner$8000.Tax credit for a second time homeowner is $6500, and must be for a primary home, not a vacation home. Not a real big incentive for someone in his pay scale.There are many good buys out there now for investment properties, boats and other luxury items at bargain prices. Now is the time to buy toys from those that lost them.

    • Yeah, the story is still in tact, but if people are getting scared by this little insider selling, wait till Morris starts his usual selling. He is the founder of the company and has sold a lot in the past to diversify (I assume).

      All the insider seller worriers really come out of the woodwork then.
