It's pretty clear someone has been buying. Aside from the light selling the day after the divvy announcement, this stock has been holding it's own. I've bought back in as well. Interesting play, now that birk and company are going to be changing out and it would seem others are starting to call the shots. birk resisted doing anything with this money for the longest time. Now we have special divvy and buybacks. Next, I'd expect the company to sell itself if they determine share price/company value is not increasing satisfactorily. Also, I'd expect this after birk steps down, not before.
