Today is the highest volume trading day in 2 years and 8 months...
...excluding the 3 days of high volume in June/July 2011, owing to the exogenous effect of Russell index rebalancing.
(The last time we had a higher volume day was 2.5 million shares on 8/30/10.)
Incidentally, I wonder at what price HTCH has to trade at, going forward here, to be ADDED BACK to the Russell, at the end of June this year. THAT would be exciting...and create a nice bit of additional demand for the stock.
Seems like just yesterday it was having 30-40 k trading days. Getting back on the Russell would be a shot in the arm. A little pullback seems reasonable here but I thought that a couple days ago too? Haven't heard anything from that fellow who in the past would mock LTF about his position. Would like to hear him comment on this run up.
