Options Expiration is what is happening... They will keep it pinned around $9. Should rise past $10 before earnings and then to $12 after earnings. It has definitely lagged behind the past month while the rest of the market has risen. Volumes have been low. So, ride it out.
don't know dave looks like it is about to cross its 200 day moving average so it should break out to the upside, wish I had sold out at 9.45 the other day but i thought it would keep rising like it usually does before earnings but it didn't. Maybe in the next few days we can get to 9.75 or so. Then I may let some go.
Thanks for the info. I am going to study the historical prices, yes it does seem to move up prior to earnings, goes up day of earnings announcement then up a day or two after only to fall below pre earnings prices. This typically happens on some bad economic news or down market days.
