I saw it as well + I was watching something I never watch, talking head TV for the Bernanke speech, + those trades went buy + I confirmed them on my AH site. There were only 500 shares that traded at those levels, not sure what happened but someone got burned buying them as it settled into what is showing pre-market, up .51. Someone may have keyed in the wrong price, instead of up .51 they may have hit 5.10.
I don't know about the 50.40 but HCP is a screaming buy with the economy around the world stagnating and the us bumping up and down. Im adding to my hcp for the long term and hope the rates do go up so I get more yield. This is a great company to just keep buying whenever its not at a high then going in hard on big corrections. I hope and pray it goes to 35 sometime in the next couple years and I also hope it doesn't split again anytime soon. Id like to see it hovering and dipping so I can buy for my retirement program. I still have about 25 years to live according to the statistics and that is perfect for the baby boomers dying along with me in the future. Rates will go up and down but nobody is taking the shares I already have accumulated in this one. Im leaving these shares to my kids ( divided up to the 4 of them)
