Please don't let this become a political thing, because it will kill any thread.
As a small business owner around 100 employees in a construction related service industry, there ain't no way in heck, we are going to hire anyone, with the impending health care situation and economy. We are going to keep on tightening up and slowing operations until November.
TA could either explode or slowly dwindle down, depending on which way the political wind blows this November. Investors are going to sit tight. Plain and simple. Even-though TA's numbers are good now, it doesn't take much of an economic downturn to cause TA's earnings to go down the drain.
Sirius I believe is correct....the folks who bought the secondary are getting out in the mid-$5's and temporarily keeping a lid on the price. But once this is over, combined with much more analysts coverage will do the trick.
But, the stock has to stay above $5 for major investors to become able to buy it, and when sophisticated investors look at the interlocking relationships between affiliated companies they are going to see that this is not a straightforward business. I wish I had known about the landlord/tenent arrangement before I bought it.
