The big boys are still holding a growth prospect with a good dividend.
BGS should play well here.... and head back up.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
No real reason for any substantive move based
on BGS alone.
The recent buy has closed and now we must wait
for any details of financial improvement, most likely
coming at quarterly release.
Over $ 30, BGS will need some new info to spur
sustained price levels.
News on balance sheet expansion or a new purchase
would make BGS move and stay higher....but heard
nothing recently on these fronts, of late.
And they sold today too.
They trade this like a BDC or some other high dividend stock. I have not done a scan of all divvy payers, but I would question whether they all go down ex-div by the same calculation.
Anyway, I have held without selling since $9.60 so I tend to agree with your assessment so far.
