Up Volume Recently and Today In Early Trade Consistent With Institutional Buying
IMO institutions see good earnings coming. Additionally, the stock price should continue to move higher as we get closer to split eoy. I think price will be at least $80 by early Jan. If earnings aren't terrible and if there is no market crash, I think it is reasonable to expect this performance.
"Pontification" usually comes with lots of vile language and off-the-wall political views. I have not seen that here. Instead, I think we have some profit taking in a stock that has run up. That will soon exhaust, and the rationale that drove it higher will resume, and carry the stock price over $80 by early Jan.
