I bought a partial position in SHIP and was wondering the same.
TA perspective:
a close above 1.28 would be positive.
an increase in share price, on significant volume would be positive.

SHIP has significant resistance at 1.28 (both and proprietary software)

The move up is on low to medium volume. Today's volume at 11am is 134k out of 187k avg volume. 66% of average before noon, but not extreme volume.

The share price has closed 2 days consecutively above the upper limit of the down channel that it's been in since May 2010.

There are NO gaps waiting to fill.

FA perspective:

Market Cap (intraday)5: 74.64M
Enterprise Value (Oct 6, 2010)3: 433.48M

Total Cash (mrq): 70.90M
Total Cash Per Share (mrq): 1.18
Total Debt (mrq): 432.14M
Total Debt/Equity (mrq): 165.10
Current Ratio (mrq): 1.27
Book Value Per Share (mrq): 4.35

Market cap 75M roughly= total cash 70M... share price is approximately 'cash value'.

432M debt.
Cash flow statement (Dec 31 2007 to Dec 31 2009)
income from operating and investing activities has increased while income from 'financing activities' has decreased.

IIRC, Dale Ploughman, the CEO, has in the last 6 months, purchased 150k shares at an average price around $1.24.
The insider transactions on Yahoo seem at odds with the yahoo news story about DPloughman :-)

fwiw and fyi :-)
