95% of them where highly discounted. Calls on the other hand, though less in volume, were selling at a very large premium. The fact that the reporter on this story just left that part out is not a coincidence. Big money is buying up ALU right now and they don't care how they get it. You do understand they tell media what to say and when to say it. I could care less if any of you sell your shares or not. It would just be nice to see the little guy make a huge profit from this one.
AS a small pisher of investor with no inside information or knowledge other than 25 years of watching the market. when the noise is both good and bad every other day then something is up. For example, I bought Ford @ 1.46 a share, at that time the analasyts (sp?) were saying that it was as bad as GM, however they later, after things improved, changed their tune. These guys are shills for hire. Plain and simple. Who you believe, I don't really know.
