First of all, you did not bring any real  reasons for the stock being down, except that the whole sector is down. Everything else you said is innuendo. The company has a timetable which is followed. The fact you completely disregard the quality of the people involved with NPK proves me you are completely out of loop. These are people who dealt with the issues a company as NPK has to deal with. These are the people with the right knowledge and the right connections to make things happen. If, by now, you don't know that the management makes or breaks a company is better if you take your toys and go back to your paper route. You think you know better than these people, or you think they may have a reason to make tis company to fail. You didn't show us anything to prove your allegations. And, if I look at your pick in the sector,AAA, I wouldn't be so proud of it.
