    Thin Trade Stocks Take Eco Related Hits

    This company suffers from what-the-heck-are-they-itis. They're software security and internal lan info transmitters in the internal MD and MD to pharmacy linker-uppers--who knows what. They don't fit into a niche you can nail easily--see how they are categorized in YAHOO. They are actually a specialty software company with a pure play entry in a limited but lucrative market. In the quarterly review they talked 95% rate of return which they found un repeatable simply because the number is so attractive to those who'd penetrate from outside. I got news for you. It is closer to consistently repeatable as I have seen in business models I have studied,

    But what they do and their climb up reminds me a lot of ebay and amzn which went through similar ups and downs. "the big boys" are manipulating the shares via big chunks flowing both in and out.

    Just remember for every seller there is a buyer--and this one is going to be as hard for these guys as Bezos lacked credibility at AMZN also. I think this range down in the eights and nines is OUTRAGEOUSLY undervalued for a growth stock with this model--but I thought so with AMZN also and had to ride it down 75% before it turned.
    I bought at 15 and just keep writing covered calls and letting them expire as I buy them back. Now I have 10.99 in my 15.2 acquisition and just keep writing calls.

    Eventually after the interest rate nonsense passes and everybldy gets to feel a 1 1/2 rise over a year is meaningless we will reap the rewards of patience.

    Keep on buying dips and writing calls.
