Why don't you quit cheerleading? The stock price is where it was years ago - yes it is up 49% from last year. Management is holding it down while they get cheap options and yes I believe they will pop the price sooner or later. They did it earlier this year when the forecasted the first qtr and all of a sudden 2 months later everything is better - everyone has to know what they are doing.
Yeah, gets a little old and you provide some decent insight. As I have said before, after the ER in Feb, management is either stupid or unethical, and I would say the former is highly unlikely based on their own prerogative. Holding a little over 1k shares, but I simply drop covered call contracts weekly for ~1%/week return. Don't see this taking any massive pops or drops right now, but options buyers are willing to pay a premium. Hoping to sell weekly 81s today for .60 and don't care if the shares are taken at week's end...gotta keep emotion out of this strategy.
