This is certainly the least active board on SI, or close to it.

The low interest reflects the slow movement of the stock. We are now flirting with 17.50 with a gap around 19.00 before it declined from $20.00

And, on the downside there is always a possibility of a correction tot the support level.

Huge volume for this stock the other day----stock absorbed the sell. Of course for every sell there is a buyer.

I just sold my last shares. They might be steady in the sense that they will follow the market volume. Not sexy enough for a big move up but a great cash generator to limit down side.

IDC now at its ceiling. I don't own as much as I did either---needed to raise cash so had to move some out.

IDC continues to be cited throughout the media.

Greetings 613

How do you feel now about IDC(almost 2 years later)----do you think it has any latent or new sex appeal?

At an all time high in recent years and new developments.

I've been out of this for a while now.
Certainly no sex appeal but it seems to be a cash cow and solid company. I was considering trying to trade it on pull backs but I don't do that to much now-a-days. If I saw a quick pullback for no reason, I would certainly consider jumping in. But I'm tied up in other stuff at the moment.

IDC is a cash cow and appears solid. They announced they are buying the quote division of Lycos this week.

Lycos is one of the early very good search engines-------.

Stock touched on $23. past few days.
