    stock price rising despite increased short interest?

    Back to 1.61? Honestly didn't expect this until we got a news bump. Good sign, though of course there won't be anything spectacular until there's news.

    Sentiment: Buy

    • I’m guessing that we’re less than 30 days away from earnings and this time Eno might actually have something to report. The December announcements that both Mvera B5008 and the PVC Modifier I6001 are now shipping along with the announcement that Kenmare will be promoting their films in 2013 should lead to a few sales. This company isn’t all about announcing the sales numbers so I don’t expect any news until the CC but this time there may be something to announce.

      I don’t really buy the momentum argument, instead I would expect some of the rise is due to a few of the shorts covering before earnings. The most recent numbers show that the number of shorts are up but so are the days to cover so the potential for a squeeze is growing too. That’s not a very comfortable position to be in if you’re sitting on a lot of gains and want to get out fast.

    • we might be getting some momentum buying too. not the solid fundamentals we need but I'm not complaining

      Sentiment: Strong Buy
