    AVID up $1.06 on 567,500 volume!

    Can anyone account for the large spike upwards on the share price of AVID?

    AVID closed today as you all know at $10.55, up $1.06 on a volume of 567,500.

    Perhaps is was AVID's multiple installations in various countries in Eastern Europe.

    If anyone can tell us more about the $1.06 rise in share price on a volume of over a half million shares, please do so.

    • Looks like it was under accumulation by a brokerage house - anyone out there know who is following them? This could be in response to the recent Investment Conference that they attended....either way - very impressive volume.

      • This type of volume has not been seen in a little while, but it is not exactly atypical. If you look back over the past 2 years, there have been quite a few days where more than 500,000 shares traded, and a few where it even got to a million.

        The interesting thing about the other day is that 80% of the volume can be explained by five larger trades. 350,000 shares were traded in three large blocks before the price went up. There was then a spike in the late morning, which is bracketed by two 25,000 share trades at lower prices (that is probably the cost of moving larger blocks on a low volume asset). The price was actually driven up by individual investors buying small blocks, not instituional purhcases.

        I wonder if there is a little leak of info around Avid, or if investors are just noticing that (1) Q4-Q1 is usually a very good period for Avid stock and (2) there is already strong momentum building. The technical analysts would probably have a field day in this situation, but they are probably not covering this stock.
