I'm with you on this board, but I believe we are the lone souls buying this stock. I have owned GOSHA for 3 1/2 years. Bought at 8.75. Recently I have watched a healthy gain disappear as 50% of my share value eroded over the past couple of months. As usual, there is no news, no analysis, no conversation, and no volume to suggest why this has happened. Sometimes I fear that this stock is driven by the few Fools who identify it as a bargain and then trade it amongst themselves. I'm reminded of the joke about the broker who calls his client and recommends stock A at $10/share. His client buys 100 shares. A week later the broker calls back and tells his client that it has risen to $20/share. Elated by his quick return and good fortune, the client adds another 100 shares to his position. Finally, after watching his stock rise to $100/share, adding each time his broker informs him of a rise, the client calls his broker and tells him to sell his shares. "To whom," says the broker.

This is a good company, but a thinly traded and unpredictable stock. I let it stagnate for 2 years and then watched it run, only to fall behind again. I hope your estimates are correct. I'm hoping that its recent sag has to do with the general indifference to traditional (read non-e) retail.

Off topic (but who's listening anyway)--I saw your post on the OMX board, I'm long there too. Looks like you might get your share price before today's session ends. Yet another retailer I can't predict. Good luck.
