As a long term employee of the Trib, I always had pride in our product. As I set the Trib and the St Pete Times side by side and imagine which one I would choose as an unbiased visitor... the reality saddens me. Managing expenses is certainly necessary, but you still have to provide a product that people want. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be much focus on that anymore.
I just sold all shares at the close for $8.10 per share for a .21 per share gain. 2.66% gain in one day... not bad. I got spooked when the market didn't hold 10,000 today. Had to take a small profit and run.
I bought 20k worth at the close for $7.89 per share. Gannett and NYT both closed near their highs of the day. I think MEG is good for a couple day bounce and then dump it. Good for trading only... no long term investment here.
