This is one of those sleeper stocks I'm convinced is gathering for a run, although a quick look at its history wouldn't suggest that. But looking a little closer at the chart signals, and in this particular case at what the MMs are doing, it looks a lot like an accumulation.
Another thing to look at is the industry this thing is in...after all the carnage in the real estate and mortgage market, this one managed to not only come out of it in good shape, but actually improved. On the face of it, with asset backed mortgages it looks boring, but the rush from sub-prime is going to be looking for a place to park, and this is more than likely one of the parking spots. When that happens, it'll be a hell of a ride IMO.

This is an incredibly small o/s/float...so small that even the slow accumulation that's going on now is pushing the PPS up, even though the MMs are obviously trying to hold it down. Judging from pinks sheets, it seems that some shorts are about to get caught with their pants around their ankles.
