No top-line growth in a few years. Earnings growth is coming largely due to buybacks (from a large cash horde).

Also, there is a significant overhang of employee options (approx. 1.5 mill.) at 9.21.

However, there might be a catalyst for change in late 2007 or early 2008 as the founder/CEO steps down (after 30 years). The Street doesn't like Mr. K, and whoever is chosen as his successor might get a honeymoon period.
