    Not so hot to employees

    Investors beware hot topics may "pretend" to take care of their employees but this is in fact not the case. Very qualified managers are being overlooked for promotion even though the company states "we hire and promote with in our sales force". I know of at least two pending law suites for unfair labor practices. Interestingly, the company has recently hired on a full time attorney - wonder why? I fear there is trouble ahead for hot topics with labor relations. Return comments appreciated.

      Note absolute absence of specific facts. This is merely a "hedge fund script". A script that hedge fund managers use when the go short in a stock and then try to lower the stock price through slander and disinformation. This script could be used for ANY company, just find and replace "hot topics" with any other company name.

    • it's all about EARNINGS people, there are a million things you can find wrong with a company if you look hard enough, until earnings reveal trouble within the company, HOTT is golden. They dominate a niche market, simple as that. Who do you think's buying those 100k shares today?
