  • Piper Jafray downgraded TWGP on November 8. Then they downgrade it less thna 2 months later. It did make a significant move upward during the 7 weeks...

    Perhaps it is going to move north again?

    You are correct when you write of volume being important, especially in a small cap stock. Institutional buying can make the stock move big!

    • Certainly I hope it is going north again. I am long on this stock, because I tend to focus on fundamentals as well as trends. You properly note that the stock made a significant move up during the last 7 weeks. But I think that earnings are going to be the driver of this stock. I wouldn't be suprised to continue to see some volatility on light volume, then upside at earnings time (assuming, of course, that earnings meet/beat expectations).

      • I am long TWGP as well. I own this stock at many different levels. My last purchase was 200 shares under $20. All other purchases were well below that level. This is why I am tempted to "ring the register" when I see the stock struggle (as it did this week on low volume).

        However, I must admit that I think the stock will hit $30 this year, and that is a 50% increase on my highest purchase...not bad heh....

        TWGP is #13 on the IDB top 100 this week.
