Oh, it's just daily volatility. TDFX has done the same too, dropping from 35 all the way down to 21 after a positive earnings announcement that doubled analysts predictions. It's just the general market that's probably a bit overvalued, but to date, I still hold every single share of GCO and TDFX.

I only use buy and sell orders average once every 4 months (I'm a long term investor) and occasionally limit orders (I usually do market orders) and I often ignore volatility if it's just the stock price. The stock price often eventuallly catches up, if the company keeps growing consistently. Even if that means a long wait. (That's what Warren Buffet does ;-)

Thanks,
Mark Rejhon
