As we speak acquisitions are happening in Texas. Being short was a good move on your part, however don't play that card to long. All staffing companies are being hurt. Smart money is buying. This is an industry that the street has not realized it's potential. Your right about the blackout. Afterwards you will see news and reviews that will move this stock. Currently everything is tied into the Walter's deal. I'll say it again, this is a great deal for all stock holders.
You're right on the money! Blackout will be effective 'til the deal with Walters closes. Going to shareholder for a vote around the 3rd week in Oct. Coincidentally, that's when we should also get some 3rd quarter earnings numbers. I wouldn't be surprised to see a modest upside surprise, but I'll be very happy with in-line eps. That's put the trailing 12 mos eps at $1.35 per share versus $0.87 this time last year. Not too shabby! How'd you like your net income to be increasing like this each year?!!!
By the way, the blackout period does NOT prohibit other firms to issue research opinions. It only applies to Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs and the folks at StaffMark. I like buying a $50 company at $18 -- regardless whether it takes 1 month or 12 months for others to warm up to this explosive growth story.
