Earnings will be a week after the debt ceiling deadline. A lot can happen before they report earnings. The move up today is likely because of end of quarter window dressing and an extra pump from Cramer. This is wonderful exit territory, not hold and hope territory, IMHO. I've exited and now just bought 2 puts. If I lose, the loss is limited. It's too risky to remain long here, IMHO.
Just said that FMs want to buy this stock at lower that why they are pushing down this stock. Quarter window dressing is near. Stock goes down from 152 to 145 in two days in low volume tell me that FMs are controlling this move. No other reason to cause this downward other than FMs magnipulate.
