"Sorry to be posting on this id, but I am having trouble with my main, PK, but yeah that volume is awesome." - happiervalley - 13-Mar-12
Perhaps you have not been paying attention or truly following AMRI. The volume has not been awesome. If you subtract those occasional block trades, volume has been the exact opposite of awesome. Trading volumes for AMRI are evaporating. This is an indicator of investor disinterest. This is not good because a friend told me that as trading volumes decrease, the potential for stock price volatility increases.
Aside from that . . . different ID? Trouble with his "PK"? Seems very suspicious . . . very very suspicious . . .
The more important question is: how would anyone here have the slightest of clues if something was really going on? This leads me to ask: What volume? This leads me to also ask: Does anyone here even pay the slightest attention to the information provided here on Yahoo?
If you had clicked on the chart for AMRI, you would have noticed that early in the Trading Day, there was one trade for 247,000 shares. Subtract that from the total for the day. What volume?
My guess is that the relatively large trade was a large shareholder selling; a bargain hunter buying; or both things happened at the same time.
Interesting. According to Yahoo: four trades have accounted for 208,200 shares so far today. One trade was for 100,000. In retrospect, April 12-13 might have been a good time to buy and then sell if it hits $5
