I'll go back to "lurking" and stay out of your way.

Don't you dare, if we can't explain why Sycamore is valued the way it is, we have no business owning the stock. Sometimes it's easy to assume a poster is a short just baiting those that are long, sometimes it's easy to flame an innocent question, etc. The boards here at the Fool are among the best for being relatively free of misinformation, and the posters get testy when "hogwash" shows up. Just glance at the Yahoo board for a comparison and you'll see what I mean:

Your original question:

I'm having a lot of trouble understanding why Sycamore keeps going up. They have projected *losses* for the next couple of years, they're losing money now, they have no P/E ratio and they don't pay dividends. In spite of all that, the "experts" recommend a "strong buy" for this stock. What on earth is keeping the price up on this thing?

Start here, it's the financial page for SCMR here at TMF.
