I hear you on this. I can't find any news releases to account for the slide. I do see that 03 eps est have come down 8 cents over the last 60 days, which implies flat earnings. I use eps est as a reference point, not a fact.
The overhang of stock for sale no doubt is affecting the stock. But this is ridiculous. If a stock is trading at 8x earnings, why not lbo the thing? Does management even care about the stock price?
