    NAV 8.12 after 1.36 net loss - Ugh!

    You should learn to read after hour tapes. Last at this time was $8.00. What you are seeing on Yahoo is DF codes Which were crossed in house during regular hours by brokers and reported
    after hours.

    This error by posters continues to recur and demonstates the need for many posters to get a financial education. If you want to refer to after hour trades get the tape and read it.

    • 1800 shares traded at $8. That is not a market volume of any significance. If you look at the tape what you see is very few trades. I sold 65 of the $8 shares. After hours there was very limited bid action or sell order action.

    • From today's NASDAQ after hours trading page.

      Time Price Volume
      19:21 $ 8 600
      18:35 $ 8 1,200
      17:44 $ 8.41 8,712
      17:39 $ 8.25 435
      17:35 $ 8.25 1,000
      17:34 $ 8.25 1,500
      17:30 $ 8.18 935
      17:28 $ 8.41 8,712
      17:27 $ 7.70 1,000
      17:04 $ 8.41 17,624
      16:44 $ 8.41 10,547
      16:27 $ 8.41 46,710
      16:22 $ 8.411 535
      16:15 $ 8.40 396
      16:15 $ 8.33 1,000
      16:14 $ 8.2783 121,700
      16:14 $ 8.4117 3,929
      16:05 $ 8.277 1,700


      So we can see that only 1,000 shares traded in $7.70 and 1,800 shares traded in $8.

      What's about those $8.41 or $8.2783?

      • Just wait for the market to open and the price to settle with some real volume. Several of those trades are just getting logged after hours but were trades from the day's market hours. Really there was trivial volume and no consequential market action in the after hours trading.

        People will have to resolve the two contradictory messages. NAV fell, giving a reason to decrease valuation. Dividend stayed the same, giving a reason to increase valuation (yield is very high). The EPS missed expectations, giving a reason to lower valuations. But a PE based on extrapolating to 92 cents per year is a low 9.1, giving reason to increase valuations.

        I think it swings +/- 5% and then after a week, we go up. JMO.

      Your link also shows the trades prior to the $8 trades were at $8.41 and in the $8.20 - $8.40 range. This suggests the $8 trades was sellers whacking the bids to cut and run, rather than a controlled trade. Besides this stock closed at $7.70+ just yesterday, meaning anybody who bought at that price and sold at $8 still made money. Not that long ago it was trading in the low $7s so those buyers are also making money in the high $7s/low $8s. Why should you even care??? It sounds like you don't even like these guys, so I guess you are here to save people from losing their money as an act of benevolence<LOL>. How thoughful of you. It always intrigues me why people hang around boards of stocks they don't like just to hive up negative babble. Weird.
