Bring up "Basic Chart" for ODP. Then put OMX in the "Compare" column. Go back beyond 5 days and more, etc., and note how OMX has been tagging right along with ODP. Now do you think OMX is up because of possible takeover, too, or is this SECTOR just going up because of perceived better consumer/business spending?
Riddle me this Batman. What was the overall return on your investments over the past year? BYW, Walmart has been looking for a way to increase their share of the office supply market. Acquiring ODP would not be out of the realm of possibilities.
