Total (somewhat educated) guess, Ken wants to sell the company to a strategic buyer in 2013. With this being a year of consolidation (per CC) and all, his age, etc., I think you're right. We'll see 15 by year end, then tack on a 60% premium or so and voila, we're home free. Total speculation and we'll unfortunately endure a lot of volatility until then.
"unfortunately endure a lot of volatility until then" Then why not buy on the lows and sell on the highs until then? Those that buy at age let's say 54 and wait ten years to SEE what might happen are taking huge chances. I mean the stock is just sitting here waiting for a buyer and a seller. NOT A DAY TRADER,but very patient and can wait months to pull the trigger.
