    stock not climbing?

    Here are some thoughts on Wiley's stock and it's
    flatlining of not so late:
    1. not in a jazzy
    2. seen as old economy
    3. not seen making a
    corporate wide move to the web.
    4. those who wonder if
    Wiley paid too much for its acquisitions
    5. Those
    who wonder about how much debt it has in this rising
    interest rate environment (which I don't get unless debt
    is borrowed at varying interest rates).

    Wiley might be fine relative to its competition in
    light of these points, but Wiley does not seem fine
    relative to other industries.

    I, too, noticed that
    organic growth seemed small. I don't know the industry
    average, but most investors can do better than 6% in other
    industries without looking too long.

    Mowine, I
    snubbed you in the past, but I like more of what you're
    saying. You do have to admit, however, that your comments
    can be seen in the way that others on this board have
    seen them...
