    I'd be satisfied with a smaller dividend, for them to take the cash and reinvest it for added growth. Didn't the price of the stock go down after the last earnings report, on account of lower revenue, even though earnings beat expectations?

    If it's any consolation, volume has been really low the last 3 days. I mean price down on low volume, that's a positive.

     

    We'll know what direction SP is headed on Wednesday.

     

    4 more days.
