My first speculative buy in quite some time. An addition to OMG-OM group. The company has had a recent disappointing QTR. It's trading near it's 52 week low. The company has sold off some old line businesses and payed down debt. Insiders only own 2%. IMO the price has come down where it looks to be a good target for a private equity, or a raider (shareholder enhancer). Adding to the speculative fuel, a hundred million in cash, no debt, good cash flow, and about 32 million shares outstanding. .

RE-recent PR. The company wants to grow through acquisition with its cash and leverage. IMO not a good strategy with publicly traded companies prices that are already high. IMO it would be much easier for someone to push this company to sell itself.
