>> Why would they announce then when they can wait 2 1/2 weeks for the earnings release? <<
Why would they wait for the eanings release - does the news have anything to do with earnings ? Seems like with all of the speculation and stock activity, they might want to announce whatever is happening when it actually happens, if it is material.
could be right unless it is some other company announcing. I see we are moving back to the high while the market has sold off a little... nothing will happen unless the volume really picks up this last hour.
Everybody is positoning for Mondays' announcement... we should have the most volume in over 6 months by the end of the day. Watch, if we make another run over 14.50 by the end of the day and we approach 500,000 shares of the volume that will confirm for me the news on Monday, good luck to all the longs.
