    • ...first, anything that might enhance liquidity is almost bound to benefit the stock...

      ...second, the company was REQUIRED to raise capital levels as a consequence of the rapid growth of its MPS division...

      ...third, the buyers include Philadelphia Financial Holdings who already own close to 10% of the company's stock, Netspend whose purchase will probably put them to their maximum 4.99%, and JTH Holdings who will own almost 10% of CASH:

      ...notice that the purchase price was not determined by management per se but by the volume-weighted average price per share for the twenty days preceding the deal...

      ...overall, it looks like a very positive development that should enhance the company's performance and make it more attractive to investors...

    • My thinking is that these new investors, who are buying shares at a 7% discount to the market price, expect to make much more than a 7% return on their investment over time as the value of CASH shares rise back to the recent trend line and then above as the company deploys these investments.
