Why is this stock going up?
Its not because of a deal with a Turkish retailer. What is the deal with the P/E? Is it really making $4.00 a share?
Anyway... I heard a story on NPR today about the FBI and CIA dropping the 9/11 ball because of their archaic computer systems. Basically, the government search engines are pitiful. They really have no good way to access the information they have in the data base without getting 50,000 useless results from a search like "Flightschools"
Someone was quoted as saying its like trying to drink from a firehose.
Isn't that what this company does? Data mining? Just a thought. I'll look at the NPR page and see if I can find the story.

I thought it was interesting that the price rose yesterday while the market crapped all over itself.
