Yea, I agree Robin. I look at the whole big picture from several angles. And the fact that some of their financial marketing "strategies" have indicated something of a pattern up until now (and not a particularly positive one, in MY sole opinion)............well, I'm not pointing an accusatory finger, but it just about HAS to make a person exercise some caution at the very least.......ya know?
Besides, what's wrong with exercising caution? We're talking about people's LIVES here after all!!
One of the easiest and fastest ways to build up what I call marketing "mass anticipation" is to withhold information on something to the public. Not only does it drive up stock prices, it's like a Christmas present - the more you keep something under wraps and just "tease" someone with it, human nature is that then you can't WAIT to go get it and open it the MINUTE you can! It can still be something "good", BUT..........Well, people can see what I mean, I think.
Good ole "business psychology 101".
