It certainly begs the question who would be stupid enough to be short this stock.....and it affirms, all the more, my confidence that I'll be making money here, with my 2.5% of the public float position. For now, the Street simply isn't paying any attention. But I fully expect to see this stock materially over $1, in the next 6-12 months. As the Street increasingly sees that cash flows from this industry are going to hold up just fine, or certainly enough to pay down debt, and leave value for equity holders.
Frankly, I'd personally like to see management, who already owns a third or more of this company, come up with the financing to take it private, at any price of $1.40 or above.
