As a long, I hope your right about your prediction of 5-9% but over my investing career "hope" usually doesn't help a stock, results do.
Obviously positive results will lead to positive stock prices and as in IART'scase, negative results will lead to negative stock prices. I actually think this stock might take at least 6 months to regain its footing because this downtrend is a strong one with two misses in a row and things are certainly not getting better in Europe anytime soon.
My friend, you might be right about six months. Since this is a holding company, the management will have many latitudes. If it only says it is looking for a buyer, it will gain thirty to fifty percent instantly.
The trading volume is very low and looks like nobody is interested in selling IART at this price. The reason is? This is a minimum 50$ stock!
