Recent Stock Questions

Q: hello 5i:
a follow up to a previous question on ECN.DB: can you explain why there has been a steady erosion in the price of ECN.DB, from a high of 104 a year ago, to $98.50 today? I would think that a 6.1% return (at todays price) would be attractive and would actually result in a higher price, assuming that one believes ECN is worth holding (I do). Is it simply a matter of higher interest rates, present and anticipated?
