You need to quit worrying about ITIC's market price and share buybacks and concentrate on my quilt. It is late September and winter will be here soon. I will need a good quilt to get me through the harsh Orange County winter. I would be willing to pay a premium for the early delivery of my blankie.
I have always been a little bit paranoid. I suspect that Mr. Fine is buying back ITIC stock specifically to drive up the cost of my quilt. It wouldn't be bad if I was already in possession of a beautiful and functional ITIC quilt and Mr. Fine's buying drove up its value. However, his buying is driving up my COST.
If ITIC continues to rise, I may have to switch my order to a "crazy quilt" made from certificates of companies listed on the bulletin board that could be called a "pinkie quilt". I would much rather have a high quality genuine ITIC quilt.
