Typical pre-earnings-call hyperactivity. Happens every three months or so. Really, the only kind of news that could rationally "explain" such leaps ( irrational exuberance is not news) would be something hitherto- unanticipated, such as a patent issuing unexpectedly, or a clinical trial terminated early due to extraordinarily good results, or a merger/buyout offer from a big company. I don't expect any such "news" on Halloween (well, of course I wouldn't be expected to expect the unexpected, now would I?). Maybe the change in upper level management is getting folks enthusiastic. It's certainly giving me some renewed enthusiasm.
No news that I could see. Volume about 2x normal. To me, best indicator is the technical scores. The Dorsey Wright chart is a beauty with a 5/5 attribute score. I'd buy more if ANIK wan't already a full holding.
