Please pardon the newbie question, but I was hoping someone could explain why some stocks are so 'thinly' traded.

I am in the process of reading One Up on Wall Street, and Peter Lynch mentions how he loves boring dependable businesses that produce year after year. They don't get a lot of attention because they aren't sexy. That is kind of how I view CNXS and AWGI, good companies that aren't the hot topic on Wall Street. I for one appreciate companies like this, they seem to be a good fit with the higher profile stocks, and I like the mix of companies in HG. Other than investor psychology, I really don't know, although Tom's picks recently have been the active traders vs. the other stock in the same issue. Maybe Tom has a lot of relatives.
