The credit should go to Joe Springer not Craig Hallum
Joe Springer's article on January 11th in Seeking Alpha clearly delineated the potential of TA and he said that it could triple in price. If I am not mistaking, the price on that day was barely $5.
Ever since the shares have been going up. Craig Hallum seems to have read this article and he has now come out with a BUY rating on TA. We should definitely see the $10 range by the time of the earnings report in early March. Good luck to all the longs who stuck with TA during the last few years.
Joe's article was certainly good but moreover it proved to be timely. Coinciding with the debt offering was beautiful.
But, if you go back over the years there have been a number of very good, detailed analysis on TA's potential. The first write up I remember was in 2008 and it piqued my interest enough I started digging. Others followed.
As they say though, timing is everything and I'm just glad to see some recognition for TA's true potential.
But, let's be patient as TA has a long way up just to get to a fair price in line with peers such as SASS, PTRY, CASY.
