#10 You're about to get that other C-Note, from your old man.
Don't let the short blather get you down. If these guys knew anything about this stock, they would be on another board.
Note: to maintain profitability, the company is already beginning to institute cost cutting measures. After all, they will be up only 15% over last year. Last year, they were up only 21% over the prior year, in a really lousy market!
Cost cutting, plus open market share purchases, should bode well for the per share price.
