It has low trading volumes, and is a small cap. Easy to manipulate. However, in the long run, fundamentals always win. So if this company has good earnings and financials(which it does) and is in a growth area (which is probably true), then this stock should end the year in the mid-30's, with a good dividend along the way. It's a good sign that the CFO is buying at $27.5. They should know best the innards of the company.
It is, but it may not be a screaming bargain at $27 anyway, just a good value. That over $30 stuff, and the general yield compression that lifted all the the MLP's, may just have been a bit of irrational exuberance, MWE at one point was trading at a yield normally only seen in the big pipeline companies. Interest rates have to go up eventually, that will cause these to drop even further. So my account value is down from the peak, who cares? I can't eat that, and the money just keeps rolling in.
