Hi Bob
Yes, I noticed quite a few of my subject marks hadn't had any new action in years...

Someone told me long ago that some institutions will short their holdings if they suspect a pothole in the road coming up. Wonder if there's any truth to that with SIGM. 40% of the float short sounds like a lot of people are very sure of something.

It doesn't look like a wholesale technology shift of the likes of Applied Magnetics, so maybe there's an opportunity here or down the road a bit.
