    anyone have a view on whether shareholder meeting Thursday will result in stock split; been several years since last one, at a considerably lower price than current.

    • we're voting no , we don't want to pad management pockets anymore than it is already in addition there's a chance they will preannounce . 6 months after the last commodity collapse the markets tanked .

    • 3 for 1 would increase the float to about 90 million & increase the options for the directors . So far they have sold 22% of their holdings this year . numbers match up ~1/3 of stock sold is balanced with a 3:1 split. Hey can you blame them , cash your check while you can next one might be a bit smaller as commodities went parabolic then crashed , oil did the same . The increase have yet to register at the register . Cost of business will go up and margins will it seems will be trimmed . IMHO

    • 5-20 A 3 for 1 is likelier than a 2 for 1.

      My reason is the new number of authorized shares and the solid growth pattern.

    • Well, I was tempted to post something a few weeks ago - asking whether it will be a 2 for 1 OR 3 for 1 (at these prices)? So I'm with you on this one!! Think they should!! AND, a word to all you posters out there that hate or want to argue about stock splits, don't expect a response from me!!
