    Setting up to fill gap

    Clearly Roth has a long term horizon, as do I. He hasn't always bought at the bottom, but in a lot of cases he has done pretty well. I still think I will wait a little longer. No hurry, and as long as the big guy keeps adding to his growing horde of CLFD shares no worry either.

    Not overly concerned about picking the exact bottom, but I have no problem picking adding to my position of stocks with great distributions when they go on sale. I did the same thing with the pipeline MLPs when they were all in the dumpster and I continue to rack up the double digit yields which have only gone up since I bought them when they were on sale. If I knew then what I knew now I would have bought a lot more. If you are trading in and out of STON I can think of a lot of other stocks that are better for trading. I will gladly take the rich income from STON off anyone's hands who think they can time the market every time...

    Agreed. It just goes to show that you need to hold your powder until the rest of the market does something stupid, like it always does. STON is as far removed from anything going on in any other country or even any other business as you can get. Take advantage of the mark down and reap that distribution all the way to the bank.

    I have been harping about the gap. Well I think it is going to fill and maybe then some as the broader market appears to be headed lower. In any case I welcome the opportunity to add to my position in CLFD. The stock is too volatile and management has no clue regarding shareholders interests, but insiders own a lot of the company and sooner or later the company stock will respond to earnings which should continue to improve as fiber build outs seems to be picking up in the US. I don't get my panties in a bind over CLFD other than complaining about management's ineptitude regarding shareholders. If you are a public company than you owe it to keep your long term shareholders informed.

    I am taking advantage of the markets gift and added today! Richard Lehmann stated in his newsletter that the company's accounting and MLP structure is simply misunderstood by the analysts. He recently indicated that the stock gets hit because of this now and then. Has happened before and will happen again. I agree someone may be producing these negative articles about the company to force the stock down and buy shares on the cheap. It seems like an obvious ploy. In any case, I love locking in the nearly 10% distribution with the likelihood of increases in the future at these levels. (Not a plug, but I do believe Lehmann's newsletter is excellent and I have built my income portfolio on his recommendations, along with my own follow up research of course.)

    I think the shorts may be counting on the stock closing the last gap up? I think it will and I will add at that point. The company is small enough to really have a shot at some serious growth spurts.

    I saw an interview with an employee which I believe was posted on YouTube. He mentioned the company had a large number products in development and a number of them could prove successful. They also post some product videos on YouTube, but nothing substantial. At the end of the day if the company is able to increase revenues and earnings the rest will take care of itself, but I do agree they need to keep shareholders better in formed.

    Will the stock just continue to bounce around or will it finally move to new highs? At this point it just seems like a trading vehicle as the owner has been unable to actually grow the company and increase long term shareholder value

    I am hoping that the share price continues t slowly roll over and return briefly to around $15.50. If it does I will be a strong buyer.{"showArea":false,"showLine":false,"showOhlc":true,"lineType":"bar","range":"1mo","allowChartStacking":true}

    CEO Selling?

    What does everyone think about that big gap that was opened up? I sold 1,000 shares just prior to earnings to purchase some life insurance, but I am now planning on buying them back when the gap most likely closes. I still have over 6,000 shares and I like the company a lot, although I wish they treated shareholders better by at least having an earnings call.

    It looks like the CEO dumped a lot of shares. How can the company justify repurchasing shares with shareholder money when the CEO doesn't even want the stock? I don't know why she sold but it is pretty disconcerting. I was considering selling now and buying back when the gap closes and after seeing how many shares she dumped I am not sure what to do. I keep remembering what happened after the last time the stock ran up over 25 bucks, it came crashing back down. I know that Roth keeps buying but others seem to be running away. Any thoughts?
