Certainly some interesting data here. BUT no conclusions? It seems that somehow mob rule is being choreographed by somebody. Or has the Siebert Finacial management all at once done something to add huge value? Or are the earnings suddenly much greater? The symptoms point more towards an active hyp campaign by external forces, because the company was "shorted" a lot. If data exists it will be interesting to see.
