Thanks Saul I am still studying this company but I did pick up a small portion today. A few more interesting notes that I found. The CEO has an associate’s degree from a community college in Canada. The bonus’s of the management team are tied to Increases in Revenue and net income. Its a really easy to understand business and they really do a great job in their financials to make it easy for everyone to understand.



Andy, Saul,

I picked up a small position this morning as well. There are too many positive attributes to ignore about this Company and their products. I will continue to research further as well and really appreciate the rich dialogue on this board.
