Must be an institutional or mutual fund buying. Sure will be good when the Democrats & Republicans reach an agreement. If this wasn't such a strong stock, it'd be down a lot more!
I agree with you, but always remember where there is a large BUYER there is also a large SELLER. That is what makes the market. Yes, there was a buyer at the close, but somebody wanted to sell at that point to.
MMs can use many smaller lots of sales to equal the 117,618 bid. The trade does mean there was "one" person selling matched to the bid. GLTA
