Please pardon the newbie question, but I was hoping someone could explain why some stocks are so 'thinly' traded. I understand that the nature of our Hidden Gems makes them largely undiscovered by the larger world and that this is a good thing for us, but I notice huge variances between the activity levels of some picks. FARO seems near the top (understandably with all the press) but CNXS seems so low. For a company with a nationally recognized product line, sound financials and some press coverage it surprises me. AWGI (Alderwoods) I can understand because it seems more 'off the radar'.

Anyway - I've rambled enough, but I hope that someone can shed some light.

Thank you,
