    BPI's gonna get slaughtered in Thursday's Senate Hearing

    My point was: Who is buying before a Senate Hearing that will obviously generate negative publicity and encourage the shorts? Seems kinda risky.

    • There were buyers yesterday and this morning who obviously believe all the negative publicity is already reflected in in the pps but the earnings report isn't . BPI has the opportunity to show the positive results from the ground and internet schooling. Eiseman who has more to lose then anyone will of course pull all the stops. BPI management should be well prepared for the meeting or ask for more time than the one week notice they were given. I still believe the shorts had a big influence in calling this meeting.

      • I personally believe BPI uses internal employee options to artificially manipulate the price, so do a lot of other people where i work (BPI). Also have any of you out there defending the stock taken a class there? That is why BPI and other for profits are being looked at. The classes are remedial at best, and you are required to buy books you do not need for your classes. They are profiting grossly despite the fact that 60% of the students drop out in a year, most of this is due to the student realizing the classes are garbage.
