HSII is a good company, great balance sheet, great dividend, stock chart that moves nicely both up and down. Plenty of trading volume....yet only a couple of us ever post? Weird....and sort of refreshing..I guess.
Anyway, I bought more shares today. Short term trade I hope.
I would guess that it's because the company is less than 300M in market cap, which means it is off the radar of most professional money managers (so not much coverage by the media, analysts, etc.) , combined with the fact that they have traditionally received a large portion of their income from placing people in banking and finance, which also scares off a lot. I would think that when the financial industry really starts growing again both of these things will change. Fortunately their balance sheet is such that even if that takes a few more years they should be fine.
I agree with your "refreshing" comment. It beats the message boards of the DOW stocks, and other large companies, which seem to just be a place for people to insult one another, and post completely unrelated political screeds.
