The stock seems to have lost some steam recently and there is some news around a failure to file financials on schedule due to problems with the timing of options grants...

MFE was recommended a sell in August after getting involved in the same problem...I actually kept my shares because a)I hadn't owned them that long b) had only a small portion of my portfolio in MFE and c) just wanted to see whether the news would force a management change. Eventually the CEO & some top brass were fired and the stock seems to have done alright since then.

Its probably too early to comment on FDO, but what do you guys think? It has been a solid performer so far...and I was thinking about continuing to add to my shares on an ongoing basis

Thanks for any thoughts or input
