When I made the decision to purchase shares of SEB last year it was because of the low stock ownership of the company. I went back 10 years and noted the number of shareholders decrease every year until in 2013 it was roughly 137 shareholders. When the annual report for 2014 came out I was stunned.....the number of shareholders was now 2,000 plus. I am not sure what to think of this, is the word out on a possible sale or merger? Are funds now purchasing? I am coming around to your line of thinking, this company is in play, they sold off two barges in the Dominican Republic, got rid of all long term debt, HUGE increase in shareholders, if anything happens, we will probably see it this year. Thanks for your posts, I find them very informative.
