    Very possible we see $9+

    "But Why?" what?

    Why will it eventually breakout to $9... $10... $15? Why is it down 30c in midday trading? Why is it volatile?

    Breakout: it will because the company is putting together a string of quarters that show steady and demonstrable improvement and profitability. The market is skittish on this stock so management needs to "prove themselves first" so to speak. Reporting a positive EPS for the 2011 year (likely somewhere in the 12c to 15c range) will be huge for this stock. Also, now that the stock is comfortably above $5, mutual funds/etc will be permitted to buy the stock as part of their portfolios (ie: increased stock demand).

    Why down 30c today and so volatile: because the stock is volatile. And it's volatile because of short squeezes, profit taking, lack of sold base of analysts who follow it (which is a plus in my book actually). When it has a moderate jump, it could turn into a sizable jump because of short covering. With a huge jump (like 53c yesterday) may folks want to take that profit.

    It'll go up a bit from here leading into and following the announcement is my bet. But then right back to occassional swings.

    Tomorrow, my best guess, is that they will report 0-1c for EPS.
