I've been keeping an eye on this stock for a few months as a good "sideways" play on the Internet. Thus far, I like what I've seen, but I'd like to ask the NMR vets here a few questions ...

Do you think part or most of NMR's impressive runup is due to takeover rumors? If so, and the rumors prove unfounded, do you think the stock price would plummet? (from what I've seen, that price tends to hold stable regardless of the market's vicissitudes).

Would you sell if a takeover were announced, or would it depend on the takeover company?

Do you think the stock is too close to its high and ready for a natural pullback once that high is surpassed?

The last question isn't so important since I want to
buy and hold long term ... still wouldn't mind picking up a bargain, though!

(One bonus question: Why isn't this board more active?!)

Thanks in advance ... Glantor
