Actually if you go to Google Finance (QCOR), click on the advanced Flash chart and review the after-hours trading, there was a strong spike up to $27.44 for a moment, a pull down and then capitulation upward again. Look for yourself.
I saw those $27 plus trades they were on light volume and it was because the initial Bid/Ask was very wide. In addition they looked like shorts. I said a few days ago that this looks capped around $27 for now. Wednesday will show if that is true. To me AETNA is the key if they change their stance on the drug the rest of the other HMO's threat subsides and the I see quick mid $30's.
This provides MKT confidence. Stock will move gradually but within the next days. Window for swing trade is closing relatively quickly particularly due to the divid announcement and share buyback. No one will want to be short this going into november.
