Hopefully, the secret won't be kept much longer! :-) >>Mike, I would expect that the number 790 may come from the "registered shareholders" listing in, say, the latest 10-Q. But don't be misled by that figure, dear Fools. Most of us are not "registered shareholders" of any stock we own. If you hold your shares in an account at a brokerage firm (from Merrill Lynch to Charles Schwab right down to deep discounters like E-Trade), your shares are held in "street name." That means, they're just "registered" under your broker's name. Lots more than 790 people hold the stock. As for why there aren't more posts here, give it time! We only just started these folders a few weeks ago, and this is an early implementation of them. They'll keep improving, the Web site will keep attracting more people, and it's only a matter of time. Keep in mind, though, many more people read than post... a ratio of 20-to-1 or more, in our experience. Fool on! David Gardner
