too funny. management pumping? since when? in all my research recently on ESI I have yet to come a cross a case of management pumping the stock. they hold quarterly conference call and go to a couple Wall Street conferences a year. I have listened to the conference recordings and management never says anything promotional. i have concluded that one of the advantages tot he shorts in ESI stock is that management is always quiet, so the short seller have nothing to fear about some stock promotion effort from the company.
