      Buyback is a BIG DEAL, 1 mil shares is 5% of the
      float. The float is about 20 mil shares. 35mil shares
      are outstanding. The 35mil does not change, but the
      float decreases by 1 mil. DO THE MATH!!! A 5% reduction
      in float is VERY significant!

      • is mostly psychological. They are only authorized
        not obligated to buy back any shares. This stock
        frequently trades a million and a half shares a day, so even
        with NASDAQ double-counting, a purchase of 1 million
        shares, which would presumably be spread over a period of
        months is not going to have dramatic effect.

        This
        stock is way oversold and represents solid value at
        least as long as MKTW holds up.

        minus the number of sell transactions. This number will
        usually
        be negative. Insider selling is more common, and

        is more significant. Higher negative

        of
        transactions for the period, to the historical average

        size
        has been 10,000 historically and 15,000 during the
        indicated
        period, the ratio would be 1.5.

    • low priced options.You say no! just wait and see
      the SEC reports of all the filing by the insiders. We
      will probably close near if not below yesterday's
      closing price. The reaction did not cause a very strong
      move in the stock. It did not trade even above 10! MHO

    • Well if DBCC said they were selling 1 Million
      shares, would you say the same thing? This may not be
      huge, but it sure is better news for the longs. Sorry
      you are on the wrong side on this stock today. You
      have had your fun over the last 2 months.
