Hey Carl,

Great question indeed. There is no rule or anything that prevents us from doing this and it has been done before on occasion. I think part of it is simply often questions get answered regardless of whether we are in there or not. And part of it is also that some of us don't rely as much on the Q&A portion as sometimes they can just be more or less analysts asking for guidance or what number they should use to fill in cell D1 of their Excel sheet.

Now some companies are going to be easier to get in the queue than others, so there's that dynamic as well and as we are not known for doing that kind of thing on a consistent basis it can prove more difficult to make happen.

I've thought before of doing it, but only if I have a substantial question that I don't think is covered in the release. Higher One is one for example that I may yet jump in on as I've an ongoing relationship with management there and I genuinely want to know how they see the road ahead. So maybe I'll just do that Carl :)

I'll let you know.

Foolish best,
