I, too, own THI. It's the worst performing stock in my portfolio.
My observation (belatedly) is that THI is owned 12% by Institutions and 80% by its "parent" company and affiliates. That doesn't leave much room (8%)for other investors to move the price. Remember, you need trading volume (buying and selling) to affect the price. As it is, there would have to be an institutional sell off to have any affect, and that would be negative.
