analysis departments within investment houses work according to a strict set of rules. The big boys (I.e Merrill, goldman, barney, jp etc.) don't cover 100 million$ m.v companies, it's just too expansive and not worthwhile. smaller investment houses may give analysis either if it's private or if they carry a certain interest in the company business - they wish to engage in investment banking relations with the company, for an instance. Hence, ironically the covers will start flowing once the m.v has increased - so I believe once we get to prices of 20-25$, will start see some drizzling. I can assure you that if we hit 50$ will get so much coverage you would be fed up. jmho p.s our coverage from 3 years ago was at prices, rather different - 200$ per share split adjusted.
