    This is a "blocking and tackling" quarter of wrapping up the CDO sale and prepping the company for its next phase. We're looking over their shoulders to make certain that they are executing on their plan and they appear to be doing just that.

     

    It is interesting to me that the GKK CFO was so focused on aligning himself with shareholders in his newly public compensation: apparently this team thinks that there is a big opportunity here and that they are willing and eager to rise or fall alongside the common shareholders.

     

    They will get what we get and we could get a double from current prices within the next year or two.
