Picked up a bit of SNDK a couple of days ago, just for fun. Looked at the chart. I have no idea what the FA is .... but should be good for a few. I'll be in trubbbbbble if there is some news I don't know, but its a small position.
Last night I spent some time looking at the story behind both of them. I think there was some MAJOR MAJOR bank and hedge fund manipulation (with crooked news media included) in the past week. As a result, BAC was able to get CFC for $4B with a BK story.
Etrade I don't know. Ken Griffin (Citadel hedge fund manager) is a secretive but interesting character and he seems to have a plan involving an exchange. If Etrade manages to turn around (I hope they do -- I have an account there) it may be one of the the biggest turnaround stories of the past few years.
