    All of these points seem good. Out of interest, realizing the volumes are drastically different, I compared SLP to JNJ. Both had a larger 10 day average volume than 30 day, so I focus on the 30 day average. SLP had .166% of available shares trade each day during 30 day period, JNJ had .230% (please notice the decimal point, it doesn't show up well). Other calcs show similar numbers. So a giant company somewhat in health care might be considered to have more volatility impact than a tiny company. Big sellers will always affect the tiny more, just because there are fewer of them. But things aren't so bad right now for SLP.
