there isn't a lot of selling volume. every now and then someone will try to drop a huge load of shares to put downward pressure on the stock. this is a good sign that manipulation is occurring.

one reason for pushing down the price is for a buyer to make a low bid for company sound good to shareholders. also to make it more difficult for company to get loan.

if a buy out did occur, what would be fair price. i would estimate $12 to $15 a share to start.
