The gains in the last year plus were without good news... and that is why they weren't sustainable.  If you are really long this stock, those gains are irrelevant to you, because they weren't sustained.  The low volume makes the price more volatile... and perhaps more subject to manipulation.  That isn't good for the true long investor. If you are day trading the stock, it can't be with very much money... the volume is just too low. -- erryl
