I don't put earning predictions on stocks because the analysts can tell you anything they want. I consider this a speculative stock. Anybody can promote or move stock prices. I look at these things as a stock to own but not fall in love with. When the news is released I run like a Road Runner. I think the fudamentals look good right now with the recent financing (i.e. some of the same instititutions averaged down on the financing) get burn't once 2nd time your out. do they know something you don't know. Granted they may have stock at $11.00 or more. With ncu and palla working together I think they may have something bigger in mind. My logic doesn't agree with yours but I like to buy on rumor and sell on the news. I fall in love with the opposite s-x but I never fall in love with stocks
