I'm totally w/ you here on NECA. What a brilliant strategy... They found a reseller that their product did well with, were very strategic about buying in (they acquired 1m shares for $1.97/each)... They have a ton of leverage to make HAST drive their core business and with the dividend and the price lift are sitting pretty. That's how you run a company. Very impressed.
I have several thoughts, which have been shared on this board. The staock has been in a stalemate for almost a year now. Several things could be happening: Shorts are getting out, HAST is buying shares, NECA is buying more shares, People are buying shares, shareholders are buying more shares from divi, or all the above. Like we have said before this stock is under valued and it would be fun to watch when it breaks.
The fact that at this level, they are still only trading at about 30% of book, that the banks believe in their long term viability (hence the line extension) that they are in the process of a turn-around similar to TWMC's (probably a year behind theirs), AND you may be hearing something more soon about TWMC as it relates to HAST. AND THE EXCITEMENT BUILDS!
