      Jack owns nearly 15% of this company and many of his shares were purchased above $6 with him nearly doubling down in January of last year when it dropped near $2.50

      You can bet that if you want to take over the company you'll have to go through Jack and it will cost you several multiples of today's price :)

      Don't worry, there is a turnaround going on here and the company currently has the cash to do it right.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy
