but as an investor with an eye to the future, i gotta talk about the next problem. While I am not sure we are out of the woods yet, the high volume turnover after a collapse of the stockprice had the earmarks of "capitulation" and recovery. I know it is too early to make a call and there could be another leg down but let's just go with the rosy assumption that " this could be the start of something big ". If this assumption is correct and the cash flow problem is solved and orders develop for HPA, here is what i see as a problem for us, the retail crowd-"get-evenitis". There is a tendency for investors to want to " break even" after going thru hell. This transmits into selling too early. Here is a good article on the tendency: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/body/adler-stocks.html
Not going to write much more about it now but if stock does continue to rise, I will try to occasionally post a reminder. I hope you will take a look at the article and think about it. It is a real phenomena -have seen it often in myself and others. Good luck to all of us. Hang in there.
